    Previously (32" tube) I recorded a few things at medium and most everything except auto racing at high. Now with at larger widescreen higher-res plasma TV even high looks pixelated. But "best" eats up the hard drive to fast to use for everything. "High" isn't bad enough I can't live with it but its very noticable now compared to the old TV.

    Maybe it's because I work in the industry, but anything less than best looks significantly worse to me. The only time I don't use BEST is if I think I may want to put it on DVD later and know I need to fit more on the disk.

    42" Plasma HDTV. S2 Pioner DVR-52H. Everything on Medium is crystal clear.... no pixels or artifacts.

    I'd say 75% of our stuff is in Basic, but programs recorded in HD are done at Best, along with a few select programs that we've come to learn don't record well in Basic.

    That said, we're putting a 300GB in our new Series 2, so I don't think we'll have to worry about space.

    ETA: 47" (or is it 49") rear projection HDTV.
