    My Contour 1 has room for 50 hours.  There is an owners manual available online with complete specs.

  • Recording time depends on the size of the DVR's hard drive and whether you are recording in SD or HD. Contour 1 DVRs have a 500 GB hard drive, and can store up to 230 hours of SD recordings, 80 hours of MPEG-2 HD, or 120 hours of MPEG-4 HD. DVRs with a 2 TB hard drive can store up to 1000 hours of SD content, 340 hours of MPEG-2 HD, or 500 hours of MPEG-4 HD.
