External Storage for Comcast DVR's

Does anyone have any experience with this?  The one guide I saw looked too simple.

 

  • Shut down the DVR
  • Connect the external HDD (limit to under 2TB) and power up
  • Power up the DVR and see if the unit finds the new drive and if so allow the DVR to format the drive.

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks.  A drive is a drive and I do see my area is covered so I will report back.  I've got a couple of 1TB 2.5" drives this would be a good application for.

Thanks.  It looks like every connector is active except for the Ethernet adapter.  Go figure.

Thanks Kevin. A bare drive in a docking station worked as long as it was an eSata connection. 2TB of extra storage now available.

I have the same DVR and have been waiting for the port to be turned on in my area. I think I will plug a drive in and try it.
