How much storage does my DVR have?

Your DVR has 500 gigabytes of storage. This means you can record and store about 80 hours of HD programming or about 200 hours of SD programming, or some combination of HD and SD programming. These numbers are approximate since different kinds of programming take up more or less storage space. In addition to the storage on your hard drive, certain networks have allowed us to make up to 4 hours of programming available “in the cloud” with our time-shift feature. The channels that have time-shift are noted with an arrow-shaped box (not to be confused with an arrow that you may see inside of some boxes) and are highlighted in blue. (note that this feature does not require the DVR to access and does not use space in your DVR’s hard drive).
