You'd be just as well off with a regular WD Elements EHD. Nothing notable about that one other than a higher price.

What's the difference if any??? Will the elements one do the same thing then

Thanks for the response

So I'm guessing that the av and elements name in the title has little impact on which ehd is chosen ???

If it's no biggie I wouldn't mind saving 20 bucks...but I don't mind spending the extra $20 if it's worth it...I just want to move movies from my hoppers to the ehd

It's not.

The USB connection is the limiting factor. Pretty much any drive will outpace the connection. If it's not for a 211, the EHD isn't stressed at all. It sits idle 95% of the time, and when not idle, its usually just a single, continuous read or write operation.

Hopper1 can not see the EHD connected to Hopper2. The EHD can physically be moved from Hopper to Hopper, but is only viewable from the Hopper it is connected to and the Joeys linked to that Hopper.

When I scroll down my dvr events to check what needs to be transfered...it stops a third of the way down and I can't see all my recordings

Any reason for this ???
