    I just upgraded my TivoHD with a Samsung 500 GB hard drive and the tivo said i only have 70 hours of HD recording time? What up with that? The FAQ said i should have around 98 hours.

    Remember HD take over 4 times the storage space. Tivo also reserves about 30GB for itself.

    I wouldn't have minded if it was close, but there's about 28 hours of HD recording missing.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I get 97 hours using 750Gb drive so I think 70 hours is correct for 500Gb. (with the new super size option I can get about 110 hours on HD.

    The FAQ was for the addition of an external 500GB e-sata drive, 250GB internal + 500GB external. It sounds like you are doing good with 70 hrs of HD recording. If you had added a 250GB external to your 250GB internal the FAQ says you would get 65 hrs.

    A 500GB drive in my HDTivos yielded only 63 hours of HD recording time. I don't recall the exact capacity reported by my S3 Tivos with 500GB drives but 70 hours sounds about right.
