Well, I've got a 320 GB SATA drive but I haven't had time to set it up
yet.  Also, I reckon standard cable is a tidge smaller than HD and so
I manage to get by.

Yes.  It isn't useful for me to know that I am using 30 GB of space
when I am considering if I have enough room for another movie or I
need to delete something.  I'd much prefer MythTV to report to me the
amount of space that is taken up by shows not set to be overwritten.
So, it would discount the shows in the deleted section.

It seems like a reasonable and useful metric.
