I think that I asked here the other day if it is possible for you recording capacity to decrease after a while over the original time that you had.And someone said that it is possible.What I wondering is how or even if you can get that time back?I have about 18 movies that I have marked to keep until I delete them .Could that be the reason for the decrease in recording capacity.

By deleting the Keep Until You Delete movies you will release that space for more movies. What TiVo do you have now? If you need to save a lot of movies, then you might want to consider getting a larger capacity unit.

The administrative space on a TiVo is the space used for operating system and the guide database. There is also some space reserved for the Showcases videos.
Thanks my Tivo is a Series 2 Phillips DSR 708.I have really not used my Tivo the way I meant .When I first got it and realized that I could record things and keep them until I was ready to watch them I started recording all these movies that I wanted to but never saw in theater .But I do not haeve time to watch them really .So it is cutting down on my recording .I know that if I stopped looking for all these movies that I have plenty of space just for the shows that I watch on a regular basis.Or I just need to rcord the movie and watch .I am not really that much a movie person and I do not have time to watch them .I am sorry now I am rambling.Going to stop now.

Hey, rambling is good. :) It helps to bring thoughts to the surface. The 708 is 70 hour unit. Even with 70 hours, I would definitely be careful on how many movies you Keep Until You Delete. I'd also check your season passes and make sure they aren't set to record All showings.

With summer here and normal TV series in repeats, it's a good time to watch the shows that have built up.
I just checked my Season Pass Manager and do not have any shows set to record all showings .Why does that matter I guess because it takes up space.
