How do you tell how full it is?

My Dish shows me on the bottom of the screen how much time is left.
I've got about 20 free hours left (out of 90 hours).

What is kept on it?
-Some movies waiting to be watched.
-Several Texas football games from this past season, including the Rose Bowl.
-A couple of movies the kids like.
-A couple of 9/11 movies that I have not been ready or in the right mood to watch yet
-About 10 episodes of Peep for the kids. They crack up watching those...
-Unfortunately, about 3 episodes of Oprah my wife has not watched yet.

2 Tuner Cable HD-DVR currently at 51%. I have a few hours of shows to watch that will take it to about 40-44% full. The rest is Arrested Development season 3 (SD I do not get Fox in HD) and children's stuff for my son.

About 64% last time I checked. Hopefully I can get it back down below 50% this weekend. It's mostly all episodes of Bones and Supernatural, as I've let myself get really far behind on those two shows (probably about 5-6 episodes of each on my DVR).

Time Warner HD-DVR currently at around 45%. Was 90% earlier this week, so I pretty spent all week watching TV.

I have the HDTiVo, and it doesn't tell me how much space is used, but right now the hard-drive is empty. Watched everything last night.

I'm usually running at 75% capacity (30 hours...I swear I'll watch it all someday).

In the worst case ever, I had 31 minutes free.

I have a Dish HD-DVR that holds 180 hrs of SD or 25 hrs of HD. There is a mix of HD and SD on it right now, and it is about 70% full.

mine's about 68% full. I've got about 6 unwatched Lost episodes in HD that would pretty much take me down to 0% if cleared.

I've got to keep an eye on how full it gets because I placed The Daily Show on my season pass, and for some reason it records the show EVERY time it's on - and it's on like 12 times a day. I've tried changing the settings to first run only and also tried deleting the season pass but it just keeps recording...I think my DVR's possessed.

60% full

Have most of season 5 and all of season 6 of Justice League Unlimited
Just about the last 2 seasons of Teen Titans
A few eps of Pros vs Joes
Last nights Smallville
and a CSI from 2 weeks ago that I haven't caught yet

It usually hovers around 80-90% full with Grey's Anatomy and random stuff I just record to watch.

I have a Comcast HD DVR and it's at 78%. It has almost every episode of The Office, the last couple Late Night with Conan O'Brien's, and a couple of my favorite Family Guy's and some other random stuff.

I have a 35 hour DirecTiVo which doesn't tell you how full it is. But I'd estimate it's about 60%-70%.

I do know tomorrow it will be 0%. My hard drive started dying this week, so I plan to finally do that upgrade I've been putting off forever. I don't know what size I'll get yet, but it will probably be 100+ hours at least.

Then I plan to hack it so I can do all kinds of cool things with it. Hopefully by tomorrow night I'll have a networked TiVo finally!

I finally got the 2 tuner HD-DVR down to 30% but then my GF's kid got into a serious accident. She is with him a lot, and as such, hasn't been able to come over to watch our shows. Getting close to 90% now! (All HD shows. Sopranos, 24, Desp Hsewives, few more) May have ta start burning some to DVD.

I ran out of space once. Had some HD football games on there.

Mine is currently about 60% full, but almost all of that is taken up by Season 3 of The L Word, none of which I've gotten around to watching yet.

Mine (which I think is 100 hours) is about 50% full right now. It was more full, but I went through and deleted the ten or so episodes of Prison Break dating back to October that I hadn't watched yet. I figure at this point, I might as well wait for DVD on that one.

Other than that, there's a few movies (some I recorded, some my wife recorded), a bunch of shows my wife watches and some shows (like a couple of episodes of The Amazing Race and Desperate Housewives) we watch together that she hasn't been in the mood to watch so I can't watch them either.

0% full ... I guess I usually just don't keep anything after I've watched it.
