Does recording HD (FIOS) save HD space?

    Since FIOS is all digital, I am wondering if recording SD channels save space versus recording HD.

    I don't care about HD--either I am not discriminating enough, or the TV is too small.

    Just wondering before I take the trouble to uncheck all my HD channels

    SD channels are going to be lower bandwidth (meaning less bits per hour; so smaller disk usage), even if they're also digital.

    I don't remember the actual numbers, but when I've transferred the odd show that was only avalible in SD it was much smaller than my normal HD shows.
