If you happen to be awake in the middle of the night, see if you can catch the TiVo recording something called TeleWorld Paid Programming.
If you watch it, you'll see the various things the TiVo keeps on hand to run if you click on the stuff at the bottom of menus, like new show previews or paper towel coupon offers.
The commercials that actually run during shows get recorded as part of the shows and the TiVo can't tell them apart from any other part of the show.
And only if you're using jmfs on a Premiere would you use the version of SuperSize on it.
If you're using it on a Series 3 HD or HD XL, then you want the WinMFS version of SuperSize.
But then again, if you're upgrading any Series 3, you can go ahead and do the whole thing with WinMFS ever since a couple of software upgrades ago, and skip jmfs entirely.
SuperSize either tells the TiVo not to reserve hard drive space for the TeleWorld stuff, or it keeps the increase in drive size from increasing the reserved space on a % basis, I'm not sure which.
