Premier & WD My Book/eSATA options

Just wondering if any eSATA/FAT32 external hard drive can be used as an expander, or if the TiVo sold unit has proprietary firmware necessary to connect it.

You have to use exact Western Digital unit that TiVo sells - however you do not have to buy it from TiVo you can buy it from anyplace like Amazon.
