I've got a Dish Network ViP 922 HD DVR and filled up the internal hard drive, so I decided to get an external hard drive for more storage. I went with a Western Digital WD Elements 3 TB unit. I hooked it up tonight and the DVR detected it right away and a "USB storage device is formatting, please wait" alert box came up on the screen. The problem is that the green status bar has been blinking for well over two hours now, and it doesn't look like it's going to complete the formatting. Anyway, I just went on the Dish Network website and I now see that a 2 TB external hard drive is apparently the maximum size that is supported. So am I screwed with the 3 TB unit? If it will not work, I don't know if I can send it back to Amazon for a 2 TB unit since I have technically used it (even though it isn't actually reformatted). Has anyone ever had any success using a 3 TB external hard drive with a Dish Network ViP 922 HD DVR?
