Disk space is cheap. I just record everything at 6 Mbps and call it a day.
With ~340 GB (real gigabytes, not "salesman's gigabytes") across three drives,
I've never run out of space. Stuff I want to save gets archived to DVD; other
stuff gets auto-deleted to keep a few episodes of each show on hand. With most
of what I watch, if I don't get around to watching it the first time around,
it'll probably be on again before too long.
(Fry's recently had a 400GB Seagate with 8 MB cache for ~$170 after rebate.
The same drive with 16 MB cache, if you wanted that, was $10 more.)
