"it depends" on the mix of live local-carry channels (your broadcast TV channels) and cable only channel recordings and if your local area has converted to mpeg4 video encoding. The local channels are in mpeg2 (taking the most space per recording). The cable only HD channels and SD channels in mpeg4 basically take the same size of storage per recording using mpeg4. Space on my DVRs has 'grown' in hours since the mpeg4 began changing over since the recordings are so much smaller.
