@ Mr.X ---> I have drives from several 9400's (1 Terabyte Drives) and I have tried to slip them into 9242's and to no success did I myself get it to work. Now would it work in a 9241? That's a good test, mind you I don't have a 9241 to test it in and I am not sure if the same diagnostic features work as the 9242 to complete the install. Anyone have a 9241 to lend or test with? lol
@ Pinza ---> The 9241 has several models of drives inside the ones I have as spares from 9241's are as follows:
Segate Pipeline HD - ST3320310CS (320GB)
Segate Pipeline HD .2 - ST3320311CS (320GB)
Western Digital - WD3200AAJS (320GB)
1TB seagate pipeline works in the 9241, and it upgrades the recording hours to 155HD hours, sweet jebus, i'm going to try a TB tonight if i can find one i think may work. I have some Seagate Server "ES" series TB drives here. I may try.
Any special tricks to replace this or follow the documented technique for the 9242?
@Mr.X -----> It should be the same procedure as the 9242.
UPDATE: The 9242 now accepts 1 Terabyte drives as of V195. I just threw a Seagate Pipeline HD .2 1TB ST31000424CS in my 9242 and it picked it up right away without issue. This was tried by myself a few months ago to no avil as of V194. But we are now able to still have the Best PVR and expand its internal storage.
Remember that anyone with the new firmware will see double the capacity for the HDDs because of MPEG4 compression. The drive has not changed, just the calculation. The people without the new firmware also have the larger amount of recording capability, but the calculation will be incorrect.
I believe 1 TB doesn't have 500 hours of HD though.
