    HR21-700 WD estata to esata?

    I have a HR21-700 and am adding a WD My Book 1TB drive without any luck. The cable is Dynex estata. Is the connection on the receiver estata or sata because it doesn't seem to go in all the way. Oh yes, the receiver won't recognize the hard drive. What hard drive works with a HR21-700?

    Recording Failure

    I've had D* for about a month. For the second time one of my HR21 receivers has failed to record for a preset tv series. It shows that the program is recorded but when I play it all I get is a white picture. Luckily my dvr in the kitchen recorded each of the programs. Is this common?
