expand storage capacity for X1

I'm just wondering if they plan on expanding the storage capacity of the x1, as with the HD I am constantly above the 85 percent full if not full, and would love to have much more storage capacity.

Comcast effectively increased size by reducing storage space using mpeg4 recordings. note that local broadcast channels are still recorded in mpeg2 and take up much more room. To expand capacity you will need to swap a companion set top box for a DVR (doubles the space). I hae 3 DVRs for just that problem.
