New DVR 1 half hour show recorded, down to 89% available?

Tech installed a new DVR. I have u300.
1 half hour SD show recorded and my available space went down to 89 percent. I deleted it, now it's stuck at 90 percent. Is this normal?

Approximately 10% of your recording space is set aside for the buffer needed for rewinding and pausing live TV.


You'll never have more than 90% available on an empty DVR.  You recorded a program and that took you down to 89%.
