  1. What is the hard drive size?
  2. How many SD hours can it store?
  3. How many HD hours can it store?
  4. Is there an option to: (a) Upgrade the internal hard drive? -or- (b) Add an external hard drive?
  5. If I have two DVRs, can I xfer a program from one to another?
  6. Is it possible to xfer programs via the firewire port to another device?
Thanks for any info.

Don't quote me on this, but from what I've heard:
1. 160GB
2. ~100 hours
3. ~20 hours
4a. No
4b. Rumor had it some receivers had a external SATA port, but it wasn't activated. I don't know the current state of affairs.
5. No, but the ability to stream video from one DVR to another receiver (DVR or non-DVR) is suppose to be coming if it hasn't been released yet.
6. Depends on the channel. It appears some channels (nationals in particular) are encrypted and won't transfer via firewire. Other channels, such as locals, may not be.

All the above is from reports here or at DSLReports in the FiOS forum.
