Depending on the recording quality setting you have selected for your network-connected Tablo, you’ll use between 2 and 4 Gigabytes per hour of recorded TV. For example a 1 TB drive can record up to 700 hours of HD programming.
|Recording Quality||HD 1080 (720@60fps)||HD 1080||HD 720||HD 720||SD 480|

Since TV-connected Tablo DVRs deliver and record Over-the-Air TV in its original, uncompressed MPEG2 format, its recording files can be MUCH larger than those of network-connected Tablo DVRs.
