HD TV Recording

A 2hour TV programme recorded on a DVDR takes about 4Gig on a disc to burn. If one has Freesat and records the same 2 hour programme in HD from BBCHD, roughly how many Gigs does it need to preserve the HD? I normally record to the hard drive but sometimes burn a DVD of a programme I want to keep.

Can not answer your question but to give an idea I have recorded a 1 hour program from my NTL box (not HD) in HQ mode on my DVD/HD recorder this was approx 4GB in size.

Thanks for your replies. oresome - My TV is Pioneer KRL-32V (100Hz,1080p) and DVD recorder Pioneer DVR-560HX (scaling to 1080p via HDMI). I do not yet have freesat. Maybe one has to wait for Blue Ray Recorders to drop in price. Thanks for the link - I had thought of getting the Panasonic TX 32 LZD 81 TV with built in freesat but I think it is a bit early for that route.
