Advertisements As someone already mentioned, a lot of people have added larger hard drives. We have 225 hours on our main unit. House is one of the few shows I never watched, but wished I would have. When one of the channels started showing reruns of season #1 in order, I decided to record them. Hopefully they'll go to season #2 next and then I can watch them all this summer before season #3 and be caught up. As far as the pop ups regarding "this show will be deleted on this date" and "if I keep until this date it will not record this". Those are only warnings that come into play if you record everything on your to do list and don't delete everything. In other words, let's say you have 20 hours of space and over the next 14 days you have 21 hours of shows schedules. If you pick to not delete something, it will probably tell you that it can't record the last show. Of course, as you record and watch, you'll be deleting some of those shows, so it usually won't come into play.
