I have had two Motorola HD DVRs from Verizon since 2007 and was always disappointed they only held about 21 hours of HD content.


Well, I just replaced one that had been rebooting a lot more no reason and in its replacement, I got one that now holds something like 80-90 hours of HD content. There was no upcharge for expanded hard drive or anything like that.

Did I just get lucky or do they all hold that amount these days and I should replace my other one too? Sorry, don't have the Model # infront of me.

Found this on the interweb (I wonder if it was a mistake that I got the 7232 model instead of a 7216 or if that is standard now??)...



the Motorola manual notes record times as such



7216 = 160 gb

7232 = 500 gb

cisco dvr = 500 gb
