an SATA drive in an Esata enclosure with a cable plugged into the back of the HR20 or HR21. I believe all you do is Reset everything and the unit will format the external drive and use that drive. But you will have to set your series link all over again and you will not have access to previous recordings on the internal drive.So how do you go about attaching it to the system? Just connect it and you are good to go? Is the connection located in the back of the HR-21? Does it require any formatting or just PNP?
an external esata cable from an sata drive in an enclosure like the ANtec MX-1 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371008&Tpk=mx-1You are talking about a external sata driver? Not one that you normally used internally in a pc. Correct?

Yes I found out that you are talking about an external encloser type. Do they connect via USB?
I use two of these for my HR20s, and have had zero problems in over a year. They also make them in a 1tb version.

careful Ive heard some of the prepackaged external solutions do not work. I think you are much better off with the MX-1 and selecting your own drive.
