The DVR is the greatest invention since fire. But especially since a substantial amount of programming became available in high-definition, its seems we're constantly having to erase something in order to make room for the next show we want. Iomega has been solving various storage problems for a long time, and if you use the DVR supplied by many Cable companies, they'd like you to be able to store a lot more content. Up to 300 additional hours of standard def, or 60 hours of hi-def goodness.
The new Iomega DVR Expander Drive adds storage capacity for eSATA-enabled Scientific Atlanta DVRs, allowing cable TV customers to record and enjoy more of their favorite cable TV and movie broadcasts. Cable service providers that market the Scientific Atlanta eSATA-enabled DVRs include COX, Time Warner, Cablevision, Comcast, and Rogers (US and Canada), among others.
The new Iomega DVR Expander Drive connects to the eSATA port on the back panel of an eSATA-enabled Scientific Atlanta DVR. After an initial setup the DVR automatically streams new recordings to either its internal hard drive or the external SATA drive, whichever has more space available. For example, an Iomega DVR Expander Drive connected to a Scientific Atlanta DVR 8300HD model (a 160GB model) expands the original storage capacity for this particular model by more than three times, allowing users to keep considerably more of their favorite shows and movies on their DVR without running out of space for new recordings.
You'll never have to erase an episode of Verminators to record Top Gear again.
