Recordings take up 5 hours for a 40 minute or 1 hour programme

I have a Samsung V+Box and recordings can take up to 5 hours for a 40 minute or 1 hour programme or lately only take up 1 hour for a 2 hour long programme. Do I need a new box?

The recording capacity on V+ boxes is measured against Standard Definition (SD) recording capacity. Recording from an HD channel uses roughly 4 times the capacity of SD, so a 1 hour HD programme will show as using around 4 hours in disk space.
