Only way I've found is from "Menu" then "Options" then "System Options" then "System Information" then "System Resources".  It shows % of disk remaining.

This is one of the things I find a little annoying with U-verse. On my Dish Vip722 and actually most DVR's with them you have the time left to record broken down by HD and SD right in the Recorded Shows menu, nice and easy. :smileyhappy:

Yes, I remember having that nice feature with Dish.  Maybe it will be a future enhancement to the U-verse DVR.

Thats interesting. Since I have a combination of HD and SD recordins I will never get near that figure. My percentage has gone down close to zero before infact I lost a couple of  recordings from running full a couple of times. If Uverse would put the % space remaing where it belongs in the DVR menu it would be a lot easier.

That would work for me.

I used to have a ViP-722 as well, and loved the breakdown of SD & HD capacity, but as others have mentioned, I'll simply take a % remaining at this point.
