    In other words Tivo now thinks most of us have cable with "HD Lite" vs OTA which has higher bit rates :(

    You are missing the point. Nothing has changed except for Tivo's guestimate on converting usable disk space to recorded hours based on the average bitrate of your HD streams.

    If it was a "HD-lite" difference wouldn't it be closer to a 33% difference rather than 10%? That is, cramming 3 streams into the normal space for 2 that most cable providers are now implementing.

    No, I asked if you knew the code had changed or had reverse engineered that assumption - or that you know this to be the case.

    Edit:
    From http://mfslive.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1023

    Chico says "Now 11.0 software downloaded. Now reporting 143HD/1244 SD Hours."

    Spike says "You can run supersize directly on softwrare 11."

    Chico says "Ran Supersize. Now showing 157HD/1367SD Hours"

    So supersize and V11 do not directly effect each other.

    You're right.

    I just upgraded the folks' THD with the WD10EVCS.

    Its definitely quieter than the Samsung.
