My DVR Expander 1TB
Western Digital has launched its My DVR Expander for the TiVo DVR, now with 1TB of hard drive storage capacity. Designed for storing HDTV shows beyond the stock storage, the upgraded DVR Expander uses a eSATA connection and can hold up to an additional 140 hours of HD television or a maximum of 600 hours standard definition, simply by attaching the device to any TiVo DVR, including those that normally restrict regular eSATA drives. The add-on is tailored to quiet and dark home theaters with both a no-fan passive cooling system and a low-intensity LED light.
The storage device has been tested and verified compatible with TiVo Series3 and TiVo HD DVRs, and includes support for Explorer 8300 Series DVRs used by several cable companies. The My DVR Expander is available for purchase from the company’s website and in shops, and is priced at $200.
