Re: [Cable Card] New Tivo (replacing existing Tivo with M-Card)

Hey a heads up, Seagate seems to have come out with their new DVR Expander which comes in 1TB and 2TB capacities. Something to consider. »www.seagate.com/external-hard-dr···xpander/
I'm using one and I'm honestly blown away by just how well it works, how quiet it is, and how cool it runs.

I think I have that unit. I purchased a cheap new Premier (holiday sale) and the external 1T DVR expander. This cost less than the expanded Tivo model.

I also made sure it was the DVR expander. If you purchase any drive then it might work for a short period of time and then fail. The DVR expander model is made to handle the demands of the DVR.

The reason why the Seagate DVR Expander only says it is supported by DirecTV and Dish Network is because Western Digital has an agreement with TiVo to use only their hard drives which is why their My Book AV DVR expander is verified. »gizmodo.com/5254823/tivo-will-no···xpanders

Where did you go to purchase your DVR expander?
