For Motorola customers with the A30 guide and using an external drive, do these features appear?
The only dialog box that appeared when I connected the drive was alert #1, asking to format the drive.
For what it's worth, prior to connecting the external drive, I had turned off and unplugged the DVR. I powered up the external drive, waited a minute then powered up the DVR. Nothing happened.
The blue power button blinked once then the DVR wouldn't respond to the remote or start up manually.
So I disconnected the eSATA cable then turned on the DVR, it started up OK. I plugged in the eSATA cable and right away alert #1 dialog box appeared.
I don't recall seeing the success dialog, but the drive is registered and my DVR recording capacity percentage went from something like 75% full to 12% full.--
