However you avoid that issue with the current release is how you  
avoid it with the new method. The SAME AMOUNT of space will be use  
collectively for Live TV and recorded shows as the current release.  
It's whatever you set it to. Seems to me the only difference is that  
it will actually use the space you tell it to which sounds more  
reasonable to me.
