i highly doubt any newer hdd isn’t fast enough for a cable box. why can i not find any spec's on the My Book AV hdd? rpm, platter info and cache are not listed anywhere. it makes me wonder. one of my dvr's has an old Seagate ST3160215SCE 160GB 7200 RPM 2MB Cache. any newer hdd should have much better performance than that. i guess it’s time to go trade-in my dvr's with 160GB drives. i have been putting it off because i didn’t feel like having to setup 50+ scheduled series. for some reason comcast doesn’t offer anyway to export/save your dvr settings so you can transfer them to a new box. it still doesn't change the fact that comcasts picture quality looks terrible when compared to the crystal clear antenna. thanks.

what a rip off. you can easily find a 1TB external hdd for less then half that price. how much is WD paying comcast to promote and offer only WD hhd's? can you use any external eSATA hard drive? i see no reason why it should be restricted to only this model. since comcast doubled the storage required for shows it causes my dvr to always be full. the dvr's hdd capacity is a joke. not to mention they doubled the size but the picture still looks like garbage. i hooked my HD antenna up not to long ago and i'm always amazed at how good it looks compared to comcast. it makes you realize just how much comcast sucks.
