    I have a 4 tuner Roamio. I see there is an external storage (eSATA) port on the back. I realize its probably more economical & practical to just upgrade its internal drive, but what are some good eSATA drive options?

    External hard drives are not recommended and will fail faster than a single drive system.

    Just to make it totally clear - there are NO available eSATA drives to use with TiVo today. The TiVo software will only recognize two specific models of WD external drives that have not been made for over 10 years.
