    I get a "disk full" message which is preventing recording and tv watching.
    In fact, the harddrive has plenty of space free. What's clogging up the
    system? How can I remedy the situation? Anyone ableto help, please?

    Media Center does not assume you want to use any blank space for recording,
    it only uses the amount of space you have dedicated for use by Media Center.

    Go into Settings, TV, Recorder, Recorder Storage and see how much space you
    have dedicated to TV Recordings. My guess is, you need to allocate more

    Along with Jamie's reply, does your system drive (C:) have plenty of free
    space? Sony's use a pretty ridiculous partition scheme out of the box, a
    small chunk for the system drive and the majority for a second partition,
    neither Windows nor MCE will use this space on their own. I've had Sony
    customers galore bring their machines in because the primary partition is
    full, yet the majority of the drive is empty, the solution is to remove
    space from D and apply it to the system partition.
