Hey Pablo,

Would this work the same way with the Cisco 8642HD ? (it's also an Illico 2.0 pvr)
Est-ce que cela fonctionne également sur un Cisco 8642HD (c'est un ENP Illico 2.0 aussi)

And can we use hard drive bigger than 2TB?
Peux-t'on mettre des disques durs plus grands que 2To?

Thanks,

Bonjour la limite maximal d'une partition est de 2TB donc le maximum est de 247h HD ,,,,

1tb - 111h
2tb - 225h
3tb - 247h
4tb - 247h

:)

Bpnjour pabloqc,
Merci pour ces explications.
Je voudrais savoir si les deux partitions de 1Go et de 2,01Go sont également en ext3?
Est-ce que les positions des images sont importantes? 1Go en premier, 2,01Go en deuxième et le reste du disque en dernier?
Quelle lenteur pour formater un disque de 500Go, imaginer 1 To=4 heures:-(

I'm surprised that a Green drive would work with a Videotron PVR because it goes to sleep to save energy. I have an old 8300 with an external drive and Green was completely incompatible.

Also, from what I see, you don't get to keep the recordings on the original drive - correct?

Does anyone know what type of drive comes in this PVR? Thinking if I do do this, I would use a similar drive just larger capacity.

On the Samsung 8340 both units I had in my home you could see through the top panel cover (filled with holes) that was a Seagate Pipeline HD 2 500gb. Those are 5900k rpm pretty silent.

But it seems it has a bad reputation on amazon for failing often.

I am also trying to find another compatible 2TB drive that will be different then WD Green as I dont trust them with long term reliability unlike the "Black" series and it has the intellipower wich stops the drives wich I would find annoying and not really a perfect fit for the samsung.

You can try to find a drive made for 24/7 endurance that's reliable and quite at the same time.
I am presently looking at Hitachi 7K2000 or 7K3000 just wondering if would be a better find...

The present 500gb seagate in my unit seems to be doing fine for now but doesnt mean a bigger drive from the same series will provide added durability and if you can find one!

Now think of loosing all those recordings to ship back the drive as rma to Seagate, hmmm m'not sure!

WD Purple is a good choice.
