Less available recording hours with 6.4a

After successfully updating to 6.4a with an image, the available recording hours is about 10GB less than what the same fresh install listed under 6.2a. Has anyone else noticed this difference? Does it have to do with the Recently Deleted Folder?

On the bigger drives I will be using, this won't be a big deal, but it jumped out at me with the 40GB drive I'm using to test with.

Change in the System Info. HDVR2 running a 160GB HD may record:
v6.2a = up to 140 hours
v6.4a = up to 137 hours

Thanks Jack. I could have sworn my fresh 6.2a showed 38 available on a 40GB test drive, but maybe I'm mistaken. On 6.4a, TWP shows 38 available under Sys Info, while the Tivo reports 28.

I concur with the captain...I imaged a 40 gig drive lying around with an InstantCake 6.4a image and info in DTV Central shows 28 hours...
