    The Serial ATA drive is the same price, for you PC upgraders.

    I would recommend the Seagate 750GB DB35 model. It is a lot quieter and made for DVR use.

    I keep my S3 and DT locked up in a little room under the stairs with the terabyte PyTivo server, a hub, and IR repeater. They all seem to get along alright in there even though the server sometimes makes an awful racket when the temps get high enough to trip the thermostat controlled overdrive fans.

    But for a bedroom, yeah- a DB35 from weaknees (or I think I saw one on ebay once) is the way to go.

    I have 4 of these drives in HR10's and just ordered two more. I find that they work great and they are not loud to me.

    Thanks for the find.

    Are you using 2 per? What kind of capacity does that give you?

    Yeah- same question. I was just about to upgrade a DT with two 750 ATA's, and was all ready to throw some arcane mfs commands at them that Jamie was talking about to get them to be recognized.

    I also neglected to thank the poster. I just picked up two of these (SATAs) today for the S3. Hopefully a Thecus will recognize both.

    No I agree with many other posters that the HR10 works best and coolest with a single drive. I get 96 HD and 637 SD hours under System Information screen. I just used the Zipper and PTV upgrade 6.3c image and $5 boot disk.

    Hope this helps,

    Can someone point me to the procedure (exact algorithym) for a 750GB single drive upgrade?
    I added a 250GB with twinbrees from weeknees, but I would like more capacity.
    Thanks

    On my HR10s with single 750gb drive, the usual temp is 42 degrees(C). Is this
    normal? The dual 750gb ones sometimes go up to 45, even with the extra
    cooling fan.

    One of the GOOD things about gettings older, I can use the $230 750gb drives rather than the $499 version from Weaknees - since the less expensive drives don't sound that loud to my old ears :)

    I just cannot believe the price of hard drives nowadays!

    I thought the prices here and at Weakness were wicked cheap, but then when I priced things on PriceGrabber I figured I better hone my Linux skills and DIY.

    I think I'm going to have a larger hard drive than I had initially planned. When you can get 250 GB for $85, or 300 GB for $99 I now see why people opt to just pay $50 more to get 500 GB!!!

    I remember when I payed $500 for a 50 MB HDD (Yes, I'm dating myself.)

    Outpost had the Seagate boxed 500gb PATA drive (5 year warranty) for $119 with free shipping and no tax (for most) last week or so. The 750 is king of the hill in sizes, but 500gb for that cheap was a bargain. My friend said he was not going to order until the 500gb dropped under $100 - I don't think he will have to wait too long.

    For $119 delivered? Nope, but my ears can't hear the drives across the room anyway (old age, motorcycle riding w/o ear protection in my youth, loud music, tinnitus, etc) so I do not care. I have never had a "fancy" DVR or AV drive and never thought I needed one and I have had hacked DVRs back to the original Dishplayer days :D

    Got 2 of these for my 2 units and used PTV 6.3 image. On info screen it shows 108 HD or 718 SD hours of recording time. Cannot hear any noise from these drives whatsoever. Temps are running around 39c to 40c. I'm Happy. I ordered late Monday afternoon and they arrived Wed around 10:30. All is good.

    Has anyone used this model in a Series 2 DT?

    I currently have a 500GB (ST3500841A) and I notice the video and audio stutter for a second every now and then. I want to go to 750GB, but I want to make sure the stuttering won't happen. I really don't want to spend more on the DB35 and am hoping this 750GB model will suffice. Any comments?
