Yes, but then you wouldn't be able to use it with the DVR in the meantime, so you'd be losing out on the added DVR capacity. I'd think It would be smarter to get the DVR extender so you can use it with the DVR and then when it may no longer be needed, you can then use it on the computer or whatever.
You're being weird about this.
The point was not to use it as an external hard drive simultaneously.
I said, it seemed like a waste to spend $100 for an external HD that would be defunct in a couple years.
Someone else said "but when its no longer used with your STB, then you can just use it as a external to your computer"
All I'm pointing out is that if I was going to use it as an external to my computer, I can get an HD for much cheaper, so that post-defunct functionality isn't really of much value.
