EastLink not upgrading DVR firmware/ enabling e-Sata anytime soon.

I sent an e-mail to EastLink in regards to updating the firmware on the Motorola DVRs to allow for external hard drives.

Quote:
EastLink does not have any do not have any current plans updating the firmware on the DVRs. This does not mean that it will never happen, simply that at this point in time our engineers do not feel it necessary.
The bigger difference versus Shaw is that EastLink's customers are mostly renting the digital boxes. They may also not want to have to deal the extra issues associated with customers who buy the larger hard drive and have technical issues with it.

When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!

Thanks for sharing that info. Out of curiosity, how "out of date" is the DVR firmware on Eastlink boxes?
