So I have 12 programs recorded, mostly 1 hr shows, all are not even HD and I have over 50% used? Is there a way I can hook up an external? I've got 2 Pace TDC 775D boxes.
Yes, the eSata port works on that DVR.
In general, don't use external HDDs that have combo usb/eSata interfaces, they were problematic. Basically any HDD made for DVRs with eSatat only interface should work.
Here are AVS threads with more details on PACE DVRs:
