    I have a 2TB WD Green drive and an external esata case. Can this be connected to the Genie?

    It should work. The external will take over and the internal drive will be intact, but not used. It will be like a new machine with no season passes or recordings available.

    However, you can remove the drive and still have your existing recordings and settings again, so it should be safe to try.
