    The 'verse
    basic quality is roughly .88 hours per GB
    150GB would be about 170 hours at basic quality
    medium quality would be about 60% of that - about 102 hours
    high quality would be about 45% - about 76 hours
    best quality would be about 28% - about 47 hours

    these are very rough estimates.

    For a standalone Tivo, it would be about .88GB per hour.

    For a DirecTiVo, it is about 1.15GB per hour, depending on the compression rate that Directv uses. Some programming is compressed more than other programming.

    As the numbers are approximate, it is a 160GB hard drive.
