Moving to Videotron - recording advice please?

I am planning to terminate my Bell TV service and switch to Vidéotron. I am fed up with losing the satellite signal every time it rains.

With Bell, I could record programs to an external USB HD (WD MyBook).

Will that USB HD be useful for recording programs with one of the Vidéotron set-top boxes, or do they all use either internal or external SATA drives?

Videotron PVR's allow you to connect an external drive that has a eSATA connection. If your current drive only has a USB connection then you will need to get a new external drive.

Lots of threads discussing if you need more details.
