Most DVRS' start with the capacity to store about 30 gigabytes of memory, while you can easily order and pay for a larger one to store more movies and televisions shows. Many other DVRS' allow you to have 180 gigabytes of storage or more, however, it is possible to order DVRS' or DVR expanders that will give you the availability to hold 500 gigabytes of stored shows. No particular brand offers the single highest amount of storage for a DVR, but many varieties all offer similar sized models at a range of prices.
