Just drop the bitrate in your recording profile(s). Utilities/Setup -> 
Setup -> TV Settings -> Recording Profiles.

I use a bitrate of 4000 which I find gives me good quality.  Of course, 
using a PVR-350, my resolution is fixed (PAL) 720x576.

You can drop it to 2200 which is approx 1gb/hr.

I'd be interested in hearing what other people use also?
