Is there a way to record tv programs 'on the fly' into a smaller sized file format, say divx? I am finding that the default recordings are a few GB at a time.

    If a dvb transmission, then the file is exactly the same size as recording.

    The only solution i know of is MCEBuddy, which can convert your recordings after they have finished, but you need a reasonable dual core processor to use.
