That depends what format you're recording in, of course. Using a PVR
250/350 with "default" standard-definition settings, you'll probably
get about 2.3 GB/hr as MPEG-2 video. You can transcode this to MPEG-4
to about 1 GB/hr without too much artefact generation. However, if
you want to record HDTV, then be prepared for much larger sizes.
If you're not using a 250/350 then we'll need more details to give you
