I've had this happen, too, and will not waste my money on an expander again. Everything gets recorded on the drive that has the most space -- the expander, of course. When this happens, you lose it all, and it's inevitable.

My thinking is that the newer PVR with a 500 GB hard drive should give ample space. The problem of power failures and the nervous anxiety when trying to get the PVR to recognize the expander make them not worth the bother. Since we've been warned that we shouldn't save a lot of material, due to the possibility of loss, then watching and deleting on a 500 MB is going to have to be sufficient in my future.
