Bleeding Edge TV 196: My DVR Expander TiVo Storage Booster


We know that everyone could use a bit more storage capacity in thier Series3 or TiVo HD units. Luckily, Western Digital has released My DVR Expander - a 500GB eSATA disk that is perfect for bumping up your TiVo’s storage capacity. We show you how it works in this episode.

As for the My DVR Expander unit itself, here is an overview from Western Digital:

Instantly add up to 60 hours of high-definition TV or up to 300 hours of standard-definition TV to your eSATA-enabled DVR. You’ll have plenty of room to save your programs longer and never miss your favorite shows.

Key Features

Easy to set up, easy to use - Just plug it in to the external SATA (eSATA) port on your DVR and start recording even more TV shows, sporting events and movies. eSATA port must be active.

Compatible - My DVR Expander has been tested for compatibility with Scientific Atlanta 8300 Series, and has been TiVo verified compatible with TiVo® Series3 and TiVo HD DVRs. Check with your cable service provider to confirm compatibility with their system.

Quiet and Cool - A unique no-fan passive cooling system and special hard drive design makes it quiet for the living room or bedroom.

Low-intensity LED - Designed with a soft amber LED indicator, ideal for the living room or bedrooms.

As we note in the video, once you hook up and activate the My DVR Expander, if you ever choose to disconnect it from your DVR, you will lose all the content that is stored on it.

Hi Andru,

I landed on this post thinking it was something to do with self storage, but I got a pleasant surprise when I saw your video.  Looks like a good product, and something I was just recently considering cause we need more TiVo storage.  Looks like I landed on your page just in time.

Cheers, and keep up the good work.
