Sixty Gigs is fine. I actually have a WD 60gb 2.5" USB drive, too.
It's powered from the USB port, so if I pull it off and take it to my laptop, it gets power where ever it's installed.
No need for an external power supply.
Keep an eye peeled, 500gb external USB drives go on sale from time to time in the $89..$99 range.
... and every month they get bigger and cheaper.
I know the receiver will support 500gb, but don't think it'll handle a larger one.
YEP, USB powered- that was the big thing. And it's easy to trasfer the drive to the PC to put your shows on DVD.
The visionsat will take up to a 500gb, but that is overkill. According to Iceberg, 2gb gave him 1 hour record time.
The major ones are AMC6 (72), Horizons2 (74), AMC5 (79), and G11 (91). Most other satellites also have feeds (some more than others).
Thanks Keith. I was looking at another list and noticed it says FEEDS in the channels list of these birds. I appreciate your help.
I can't wait for my system to get here.
