Its not a case of avoiding recording, sometimes you notice something in the guide, start recording then notice you've missed an episode. This happened tonight for me when I set The Undateables to record, and I've missed the first episode. Catch up was indicated, and constant 319 errors given. This is a brand new v6.
People use On Demand in strange and interesting ways.
I always record anything I want to watch on all your regular channels never depending on on demand. However the rare occasions the wife and I say yes we have a spare coupe of hours in the evening lets watch a film that is when I turn to the On Demand service I pay for (Virgin say it's a freebie) and 9 times out of 10 I can't watch the film I fancy in HD either due to not being available at all or getting a 319 error.
The lack of HD has been in place for a year now and is not really acceptable and it's only the current discount I have on that cost that is stopping me from binning it completely.

Capacity. I record live sport, match of the day and shows like The Simpsons that are not on demand, but see no point in recording movies/tv that are on demand. 500GB is a lot, but easily gets filled with four people with different ages/interests in the house.
