    A few have said it worked for them. You could also use WD30EFRX WD Red. Be aware there are issues with the Red WD30EFAX.

    Thanks. For some reason, I have been under the impression that all the purple drives worked?

    As monumental a task as it would be (especially to keep updated) a master list of good drives would sure be welcome!

    I think there is only one line of purple drives, but there are several lines of Red drives. some are 7200+ RPM, which would not work because of the small power supply, and the heat they make.

    Allowing Roamio to self-prepare the drives, what is the process to get it to load the TE3 SW version vs the TE4?
