Jekyll Island at high tide

Jekyll Island at high tide

When I get home from a trip like yesterday’s getting home from Jekyll Island, one of the first things I do is check out the free space remaining on the DVR. At times I get it down to under 50% full, but there have been times upon returning home I was up to over 95% full. Sports events usually take up the most space, so I prioritize watching and deleting those first.

Yeah, at the moment I have 16 soccer games on it. Because some of these are tournaments which could go into overtime, the recordings are 4-5 hours in some cases with only 2 hours of content because they did not actually go into overtime.

The are two views for ordering things to watch:

  • Recent
  • Title

Those are generally good options. For 99.99% of the time, when I am looking for something, those are the best ways to find things. A view sorting them with the largest size at the top would help me prioritize my time.

I know to look for the sports stuff. But some times a sports event might affect when a show starts, so I’ll add extra time to the show just in case.

Probably not many people have this problem or care. I’d even be happy with a details view where I can scan for how long is the recording.
