Looked around the various menus and such... Is there anywhere that one can find the remaining hours left for new shows on the unit or total hours currently recorded? Replay units always show the remaining hours but I'm new to the DTivo units. maybe I'm just not looking in the right place.

It has a 120GB drive with xTreme 2.5.2 and xPlusz on there. Maybe I'm missing a command or somthing that will tell me. appreciate any help and thanks for toelrating a newbie.

There's no menu on a DTivo that shows time remaining. Every show recorded from DTV uses different amounts of compression so file sizes vary widely, even for the exact same program recorded on different channels. As a result, it is impossible to accurately calculate the available time with regards to storage capacity.
