PVR Expansion Drives - Questions

Question asked by nimbusecho on Mar 6, 2015

I am interested in adding an expander HD to my Gateway PVR. However, the only expander drive I can find is a 1 TB unit. Since the Gateway specs state you can use up to a 6 TB drive with an eSATA interface, is there any reason I cannot take an enclosure with eSATA external interface and populate it with a larger drive of my choice? Are there any limitations on what drives can be used?

Related to that, what does "PVR (or DVR) certified" indicate? My reading of the setup instructions indicate that the Gateway will re-format any drive given it which suggests to me that any drive that can interface should work.

Has anyone done what I am suggesting here? Success? Problems?
