Cablevision goes All-HD. Bad news for DVR users.

LOST didnt record. Parenthood didnt record. Ran out of room because regular channels on Cablevision went strictly to HD which fills up a DVR much quicker.

Have to delete a lot of backlog now.

Re: Cablevision goes All-HD. Bad news for DVR users.

I know - I record Judge Judy daily, and there are 2 episodes a day - that realy chews up my DVR space now that they are in HD.. since I don't have that much free time to watch all of these shows and purge them daily.

I would record some SD travel channel shows for the lady of the house, and she would get to them in her sweet time - but those suckers are 1hr a pop... and they just sit there.

Doesn't the DVR auto delete old shows to record new ones? The one I have from Time Warner does.
