As mentioned it is normal. You can adjust the data rate in the recording
profiles. If you are recording analog from the air, then you might reduce
the horizontal resolution from 720 pixels to 400 and reduce the datarate
And you can transcode to MPEG4 to reduce the data rate even further. But in
that case you should better have a high rate in the MPEG2 to achieve a
better MPEG4 result.
