Quote from: patnshan;58641Hello,I am running a 1TB Fantom Green external eSata drive on my Scientific Atlanta 8300-HD. It has worked flawlessly for years until recently. Now we are having issues with things scheduled to record not recording, recordings "lost", etc. I suspect the box may be dying. My question is this. Are there any current HD DVR boxes TWC is issuing that "allow" external HD connections? If not, how big are the HD's these days? Obviously the HD on the 8300-HD is not large enough to record a significant amount of HD, hence the reason for the external. If the drives are larger, maybe I don't need it. Thanks for any info on this. I want to know what to ask for if I need to exchange this thing. Pat
Quote from: patnshan;58645Thanks for the info Jack. I wonder if I should remove the HD prior to having them out? These goons like to blame issues on things like that when they know it's not. They tend to blow smoke up people's arse hoping they believe it. I will give it a go for sure. Again, I don't have a need for the expander if the HD is of a decent size (500GB would work). Pat
