If you can add an external hard disk to any computer, why not add one to your PVR? That’s exactly what American hard drive manufacturer Western Digital is now introducing onto the US market. Last June, the company launched ‘My DVR Expander’ for the Scientific Atlanta 8300 series of HD PVRs for a retail price of $200.00. The company now says the device is compatible with TiVo HD and Series3 HD PVRs.
The device provides 500 gigabytes of hard drive storage, allowing a viewer to store up to 300 additional hours of SD content or up to 60 hours of HD. The one problem the new device doesn’t solve: the time to watch all your recordings!
