I probably go for the 200/250gb USB HDD from maplins. because i think there maybe a problem with the formatting with a bigger drive

I won't be holding my breath for a reply though - I'm still waiting for a reply to one I sent at the start of the year

Kev

EDIT: I've just read on another site that someone has a 500Gig HDD working on one

Morning Keith,

PVR facilties are fully working by USB.

You can use any HDD provided it is formatted by our manual on our Support page, however, we recommend USB powered HDDs such as the Western Digital Passport series as they do not need mains power.

We have tested up to 500gb.

Best Regards,
Ryan
