I'll guess that you have a lot of recordings set to "keep until I delete" When you use this, the Tivo assumes that it will never be deleted, so the space is not available for new recordings.thewolfe said:I have a Series 2 80GB Tivo. Right now TiVoPlayList shows Total Disk Space of 60GB and 47.6 GB free. That's no problem.
Also on my TiVo Todo list I have approx 23GB recording time scheduled until this Thursday. That's adding up my programs scheduled programs and mutiplying them by .70GB for my hour programs.
I tried to schedule a Season Pass for a program that starts on Thursday but it says that I don't have enough space and that other things will be deleted.
How does Tivo calculate disk space? I should have enough to get that Season Pass program recorded and then watch and delete other programs so I stay ahead filing up.
I have numerous other programs that are scheduled through the Season Pass Mgr. Does Tivo look "down the line" and see that if I never deleted programs I would be full?
You record everything at best quality (maybe high quality) which will turn your 80hr tivo into 20 hour tivo (or 40 at high)
you're using both KUID and recording at best or high quality.
If you have an 80GB (80 hour) Tivo you have an 80GB hard drive, not 60GB. You may want to correct that setting on tivoplaylist. Unless of course that was a typo in your post.
