:welcome to Satelliteguys!

The HR series can use an external hard drive, but only with an esata connection. Use the search function to find a list of compatible drives.

The hard drive on the receiver gets disabled when you connect an external esata drive. You can only use one of the drives, either the DVR or the external drive.

Ok I think you're talking about the H24, not the HR24. The HR24 is a DVR that has a 500GB drive built in, which can be upgraded by plugging an eSATA drive into the back of it. The H24 is a receiver only. Yes it has a USB port but that is for use with the AM21 OTA tuner only. It can NOT be used as a DVR at all.

Just to be clear, the usb port won't work with an external hard drive, only the esata port.
