    HI. I decided that I have had enough with FIOS ridiculous equipment fees, so I ordered a 500G Bolt, 2 Minis and a cable card. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a 1Tb or bigger external HDD?

    Thanks for any info

    It has to be a specific WD device, and that is hard to find. You're better option is to get a bigger internal drive, by: (1) Buying a 1GB Tivo; (2) Installing a larger drive; or (3) Buying one through Weaknees. http://www.weaknees.com/tivo-bolt-4k-series6.php

    Do you know though that you need more? My viewing habits are such that I've never gone over 50% of the 500GB drive, and back when I had WMC on a PC my 500GB drive was big enough for the OS, my pictures and my recordings while on 10 days of vacation (although I did strip some of that out so it didn't record things like the news and the wife's daytime shows).
