How will I know when I run out of space on my Digital Video Recorder (DVR)?

The Interactive Guide will advise you with an on-screen notice when the available DVR memory is almost full. The first warning message will appear when your device memory is 80% full. The notice will read “You only have 20% of your total recording space”.

If you want to know the available space on the hard disk of your receiver:

  • Step 1: Press on LIST.
  • Step 2: Look at the top of your registration list. You will see "ENP % completed" which will indicate the currently occupied space on the device.
  • Step 3: Press on EXIT, to exit the LIST menu.
