Anyway to see how much recording time open on DirecTivo?
Are you aware that what you're asking for cannot be answered by a
1) How much unused space is there right at this instant.
2) How much space, taking into account all the programs that
are scheduled, assuming recordings hang around for 2 days.
3) How much space, taking into account all the programs that
are scheduled, assuming that recordings are watched and
deleted within 24 hours.
4) If I watch and delete several hours of shows now, how much
space will be available when I get back from vacation.
I would much rather have a digit show up instead of a "!" in the yellow
dots. I want to see a number from 9 to 0 which is the predicted number of
days before the recording will be overwritten. It should be based on
viewing habits for the last 14 days and the next 9 days of the To Do list.
No color = At least 24 hours left (same as current software).
Solid Yellow = Less than 24 hours of guarenteed time left (same as current).
Yellow with "!" is meaningless for 80+ hour units, replace that with one of:
Yellow with "9" = predict 9 days before space will need to be recycled.
Yellow with "1" = predict 1 day (24 to 47.9 hours) before it will be gone.
Yellow with "0" = predicted overwrite in less than 24 hours.
Black with digit 0 to 9 = Predicted life expectancy for Suggestions.
With this change, I could look at the Now Playing list before going on
vacation, and have a good idea as to what will still be there when I get
back. Of course, this is assuming that now new auto-record wishlist
programs appear between now and then.
