At work where we currently have way more storage than we need (we are
probably at 35% of capacity). I could and have thought about this. But
at home for myth storage the cheapness of disk space does not override
the fact that HD programming is 4 times the size of SD so when moving
to HD I would rather not have 1/2 the space.
