Expansion Hard Drive?

Is there anyway to expand the capacity of the UVerse DVR by attaching an external hard drive?

As of yet, no way to add an external HDD to the DVR -- and it may never be allowed, but who knows for certain

Unofficially, some have reported success of opening up the DVR and changing the existing internal HDD for a larger capacity HDD -- remember opening the DVR & changing hardware components is a violation of the AT&T TOS

I wouldn't bet on it any time soon. Also, since you don't own your DVR, if you mess around inside it, and break it, or AT&T finds out you modified it, you could get charged for the DVR (which is not cheap!) and have your service terminated. It's just a bad idea altogether.

Another reason to have Dish for TV. Can expand with external drive.

I messaged the AT&T people here a while back with my account number and told them I had opened the DVR and replaced the drive and requested they please charge me the appropriate fees. I received a response a few days later that only if an onsite technician determines that I caused actual damage to the DVR would I incur any charges.
