    Just a note to let everyone know that Aprcorn makes an external enclosure w/Hard Drive specifically for the DVR market and sells them direct. Never hurts to get something designed specifically for your application and direct from the Mfr. in case there is a warranty issue. Comes in 500GB and 750GB flavors:

    Taken from the specifications on Apicorn's web site.

    The DVR Xpander has not been tested for compatibility with any TiVo DVR.
    Although there are reports that the DVR Xpander is compatible with TiVo series 3 DVR, Apricorn has not been able to verify that TiVo has activated the eSATA port on any of their DVRs or PVRs at this point. Please check back to Apricorn DVR Xpander product page regularly for the latest DVR Xpander compatibility information.


    Although I don't see why this wouldn't work. This just sounds like the company cya.

    Agreed, but this is simply the company line (playing to the lowest common denominator) since the e-sata port is not officially active. Their sturdy case, active cooling and use of 24/7 rated drives makes this a great choice. The price is also very reasonable for the 500GB and pretty decent for the 750GB as well.
