Will this model work or do you have to have the specific model #WDBACS0010HBK-NESN from this link. http://store.westerndigital.com/store/wdus/en_US/pd/productID.254791800/parid.13092300/catid.59262300/categoryID.59855200/themeID.30153100 Just to add to what JayInAlg posted above: Comcast DVRs currently only support external hard drives that provide up to 1 terabyte of storage capacity, and only the specified Western Digital external hard drive has been verified to work with Comcast DVRs. Other external hard drives that are 1 TB or lower should work just fine but they have not been verified or tested by Comcast. I have seen in other online forums where customers have bought the drive that you referenced and they reported that it worked fine. The bottom line is that we have tested and verified the Western Digital Drive model WDBACS0010HBK-NESN which is available at the link below: http://store.westerndigital.com/store/wdus/en_US/pd/productID.254791800/parid.13092300/catid.59262300/categoryID.59855200 If you want to purchase a different e-SATA drive (1TB or less), you are welcome to do so at your own risk. I believe that this would be a limited risk. I realize this is a quote of what was posted way back in message #19, but it pertains to my question. I use a Motorola DCX3400, and I understand from reading some of the messages in this topic, that official support for this model will be rolled out as a firmware update over the summer (summer ending on Sept. 23). Here is my question: I would like to save a few dollars and buy the same drive that kab1 was looking at in the quote above. You said there was limited risk, and that you had seen others having good luck with it as reported in other forums. I realize that there is risk, but do you think my risk greater than others, given that I have the DCX3400? Thank you!
