How to set Recording Disk space using numbers instead of clicking +

Is there an easy way to set a recording disk to 1500GB by using the keyboard to set the value rather than click the + symbol to increase the space by 1GB at a time? The keyboard method does not work and my finger gets tired clicking.

If you have an extender, could you do it from there and just hold a button down on the remote as it counts up?

I'm thinking there is probably an entry in the .properties file, it's got to keep track of it somewhere.

In my sage.properties file, I see this entry:

seeker/video_storage=/var/media/tv,25000000000,2;

I'm thinking that may be it.

That's how I do it.

Mine looks like:
Code:
seeker/video_storage=/var/media/tv,7000000000000,1;/srv/data2/media/tv,100000000000,2;
The size is in bytes. The digit after the size indicates how to apply the size:

1 means "Use only X".
2 means "Leave X free".

So in my case:

/var/media/tv -> Use 7 TB Max -> Never store more than 7 TB on this drive, regardless of it's size.
/srv/data2/media/tv -> Leave 100 GB Free -> Use as much as needed, but make sure there is always 100 GB of free space left on this drive.

If you want to change it manually by editing Sage.properties, be sure to shut down the Sage processes first before editing the file. After restarting, you can verify it's correct in the config.
