Does anyone know how external is used?
I.e. Does it use internal and then external expander as needed?
I believe on my early Moto the expander 'replaced' the internal and when expander failed everything was gone.
Reason for asking is that I just had a message that expander was removed without first un-mounting it and that anything saved would be lost.
I did accidentally disconnect the eSata instead of power plug yesterday, but that was yesterday
Looking at myPVR it all seems to be there but I have not tried to play anything yet.
Perhaps I should unmount and power cycle the external?
Well, I found out what caused it to go offline today
A disk in the Lacie puked and since it's RAID0 the external is down.
With reference to my question of how external is used, it would seem internal first as I am able to play what I recorded yesterday. Would be nice to get confirmation though. I now have a red light showing on the Gateway, far right. Not message, anyone know?
