I had a hunch and decided to test the "percent filled" shown on my primary Edge. It is currently showing 31% full.
I did a rough count of the shows using 1 hour for most shows and 1/2 hour for others. I came up with 296 hours of Recordings! The Tivo specs show that the 2TB hard drive can hold approximately 300 hours of HD TV.
Why is it showing 31% full when by these calculations it should be nearly 100% full?
Anybody else spot a big difference between the percentage shown vs what is actually there?
This might explain why it is deleting shows on me.

Space is determined by file size, not program length.

Different bit rates result in different file sizes.

Your variance seems large but we don’t know many factors to determine why it’s reporting the space it’s reporting.
