How many hours can you record a hard drive

Contribution from 518it » Fri 22. Apr 2011, 10:58

moin guys, can someone please tell me how to tell when the DR+ is full?

the TV deletes automatically when the DR+ is too full. but actually I want to avoid this and prefer to back up before on external, if that is possible soon.

Hi, for me the DR+ shows the remaining free recording time. I am not completely sure, however, from when the automatic deletion begins – I think already before reaching the free time "0". After all, the DR+ still needs storage for time-shifted TV.

Otherwise you can protect recordings against automatic deletion – you can do that in the user menu.

sorry, but i can’t believe that. when I set the quality to low, the residual value is at least twice as high as in the normal or high level. in the menu it also says that it is the quality of analog recordings. D I have however as explained only digital transmitters, the remaining display can have actually nothing to do with it.

all the recordings are not important. There are some since December on it, which I have not seen yet. you can see the importance

Change the analog recording quality and watch the display over the next few days. You will see that it will be adjusted accordingly. Although not so exact, but already so that one can conclude how much goes on it.
If you record only digitally set the recording quality to very high, then the display is also relatively meaningful.

DR+ also takes into account when deleting which programs have already been watched and not only the age. So in case of doubt newer shows will be deleted first if there are no older ones you have already watched.

hello dear forum members,
even if the thread is already quite old my question fits perfectly to the heading :-) and thus hope also as a greenhorn on attention
Unfortunately I’m more in love with design than technology, but still get along quite well with the intuitive menu navigation normally. But now I’m looking for a way to show me the current available capacity of the internal hard drive. I have seen above that it is only approximately possible depending on the recording quality. but that would also be a progress. So my question is where do i now the percentage of hard drive usage or how much run time is left o.a. View?
Unfortunately, the manual gives nothing, I have all system settings etc searched, but come no further.
I have under DR+ only a narrow scroll bar, which should probably show me the state of occupancy. (In my case this means: "Delete finally the umpteenth romantic comedy"

But where can I see this information backed up with numbers??

Thank you in advance for an answer

P.S: picture is attached to make my probably rather imprecise description a bit more descriptive ;-)

I don’t think you can do that with the rest display. and I got used to it. It is strange that sometimes a FIlm seems to release only 2 minutes and the next time 20 or more, but that does not matter. After all, the DR+ is not meant to be saved permanently. For that it would be better to move the movies to an external disk or via stick to a network drive (NAS), if you have such a thing.
