Using a 2TB external HD (with eSata) as an  Expander for Motorola DCT3400

I'd like to hook up a 2TB expander (external hard drive) to my DCT 3400 Motorola PVR, apparently the unit can handle 6TB externally.

Shaw only sells 1TB "refurbished" units. As far as I know teh only requirement for hooking up an external HD to the motorola DCT PVR's, is an eSata connection.

 

I was thinking of getting a LaCie 2TB external HD with eSata connection from NCIX and hook it up.

 

Question:

 

Has anyone used an external HD that was not one of the units supplied by Shaw (Seagate/ Iomega/ Western Digital), and did it work for you?

I guess I can actually buy 2 of the Shaw 1TB units for $75 each, and get 2TB capacity, but then I have to swap out back and forth when full.

 

Thanks and Cheers!
