    I think you read it wrong in the manual. the sections talking about deleting PTAT recording are for recordings that you have saved.

    I thought that myself, but then went back and read it again:

    "The shows recorded in the PrimeTime Anytime™ folder will expire in eight days. The
    oldest recording for each program then will be deleted automatically, unless you highlight
    the item in your folder, select it and use the Save option for that individual recording. You
    can also select and Delete a recording in the folder without waiting for it to expire."

    Saved recordings don't expire, so I think they are talking about recordings in the PTAT folder.

    That said, the User Guide is a work-in-progress, as is the software. One or the other should get fixed in time.

    Not trying to make a big deal here, but all caps usually means you are yelling. Just don't want people to get mad at you if you keep posting as such.

    Yeah that what I was explaining to Dish the other day when they called ask if I was interested in the Hopper when I no longer have service with them. That the PTAT already uses part of the HD so the reality is you really don't have access to a true 2TB just 500GB plus just 3 tuners. I told them that I was going to get on the HR34 at some point with 5 tuners and a true 1TB drive. I think the Hopper is ok and it good to see Dish where Direct been but the PTAT and not letting the user have full access to what they want to with the hard drive for on recordings was not smart.

    DirectTV's HR34 stores 200 hours of user HD, a Hopper stores 250 hours of user HD plus 96 hours of PTAT HD, not including maybe 1000 hours of HD storage on an on the menu, transparantly operable 2TB external drive. What in the world is "a true 1TB drive"???? A second Hopper makes it 6 tuners at the same monthly cost as a Joey, and doubles the storage.
