Been on vacation & now I'm finally ready to hook up my WD20EARX (using Thermaltake BlacX for ESATA) to my HR22. Is there anything I need to do before connecting this to my DVR? Instructions in the box mention hooking it up to my computer to format the hard drive. Is that just for if I'm using it to backup my computer?
just unplug the hr22 from the wall. connect the new HD to the hr22 via esata cable. turn on the new HD and give it time to spin up, then plug in the hr22, then just follow the on-screen instructions. when i did mine it erased all my season passes, so you may want to write them down first unless you know them all.
Thank you. I'm up & running now, so I can record all the football I want (without hearing the wife gripe about me hogging the DVR)!!!
isn't it nice to be able to record whatever you want not have to worry about space. adding the 2TB drive to my system was one of the best things i ever did.
