If you're using 0.18 or earlier, it's the ringbuffer size I believe it's 
called.  In one of the setup menus.  The description for the option will 
be "the maximum size of live tv recordings" or some such.  I increased 
mine to 14 GB in older versions for instance.  in 0.19 and up, it's a 
moot point; you can leave the TV on all day paused and come back and 
fast forward or reverse through everything that was on... I haven't 
really tried that though.
