Hi All,

Just wondering how mythbackend works out the space requirements for
recordings... or rather the max rate for the card?

As you can see below I have a max rate of 138mg/min, however when I record
tv shows normally - the most I ever use is approx 60 mg/min

2005-06-19 22:57:22.126 AutoExpire: space: 2.0 GB w/freq: 10 min

2005-06-19 22:57:24.172 Estimated program length: 150 minutes, size: 26017
