    Hi All: I've done this @ least 10 times since I purchased the Roamio OTA 1TB unit 6 months ago. Haven't done it in months & I can't seem to figure it out now. Any insight? Would be appreciated!

    Go to (Settings and Messages), (Help), (Account and System info), (System Information). Scroll down and you'll see Recording Capacity and Free Disk Space.

    The percentage shows up right on the UI screens in My Shows. Why would you need more than that?

    Maybe the OP disabled the option? I wouldn't, but it's a big world.

    i know old post but i needed this same question answered... here's why. I just bought a used tivo roamio plus off ebay, advertised as "upgraded to a 3 terrabyte hard drive" - wanted to make sure it was indeed upgraded to a 3 terra hd... the percentage on the ui does not help for this purpose.

    You could remove the cover and look. Otherwise, Settings & Messages, Help, Account & System Info, System Information displays drive capacity in hours. If 1TB it's 155 HD hours. Times three.

    Our Roamio Pro which came with a 3TB drive shows 476 HD hours.

    My 3TB Roamio is downstairs. I'm so lazy. :(

    The math checks out. (465 is close enough to 476)
