I thought external eSATA drive support was disabled on the R22 product (like a lot of other things the HR21 has). :confused:


Has anyone confirmed if the eSATA drive is supported on the R22 or not for sure?

For the receivers that do support eSATA, if your receiver dies, can it be connected to the replacement receiver and view what was recored. Or are the eSATA only to give more/greater recording only?

As far as I know eSATA drives work fine with R22's.

If you have to replace the DVR the recording will still show in the playlist but the will not play. The recordings are married to the unit they are recorded on.

Your series links will still work.
