Whats the Maximum number of Recodings on a PVR220 is it 320?

Discussion in 'PVR-9200 Freeview Recorder' started by hlatham, Feb 4, 2011.

  1. Anyone know ? I'm sure the maximum number or distinct recordings on a pvr220 has been discussed before. I know the pvr goes a bit doolally when you exceed the max. Is it 255? 312? I think aldaweb Might Know. Have the old posts been lost?

    255 was the max on a 9200

    I don't know what a pvr220 is but for a 9200/9150/9300 the answer is 511. I don't recollect any reports of what happens when you reach the limit (but that might just be my memory ).

    I think it is larger. I think hummyreadfiles could only cope with 255 but the box itself can go to 511 (radio and TV combined).

    Sorry Martin, but I clearly remember people who put in larger HDDs on the 9200 saying that the filing system limited it to 255 or 256 recordings.

    Here is a link to a number of people (including xyz321 who I regard as the authority on the 9200 file system) all stating that the limit is 511 http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=738666

    I stand corrected, I was maybe getting confused with son_t transfer program, for which I did a lot of testing.
