      You have a 500GB drive, with 250GB available for your personal recordings.

      Live pause, EPG listings, Showcase and a few other things will occupy the remaining space of the drive.

      A variety of sources, including knowledge which I have learnt from other members on this forum.

      Also please feel free to take a look at the table in this thread: http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-h...-versions.html

      I hope this helps.

      With the amount of HD now available you will soon find 250Gb is not enough.
