I'm gonna give the PURX a shot.  And yeah, I think 3TB is sufficient as well as hopefully work w/ the BlackX.

 

They finally agreed to send us back one HR-24.  Took about 1hr of complaining that my work order (swap a Genie for one of my 3 HR24's) was not done as requested.  They came and took all 3 HR24's and left a Genie and two mini's.  So I lost of a lot of recording capacity (in channels and storage).  This should set me right for the next 3-5 years.

 

Of course, for some reason the new HR24 isn't showing up in Home Network...so another call will need to be made.

 

Very pleased w/ the Genie's speed.

I have a 2TB SATA drive (in MX-1 enclosure) that is showing signs of failure. I am looking to upgrade my storage capacity with a new 3TB SATA drive (with MX-1 enclosure) for my HR24-500 DVR.

The large majority of SATA recommendations are for Genies (HR34's and HR44's), and not for HR24's. Any recommendations for HR24-500 compatible 3TB SATA drives (manufacturer/model) would be greatly appreciated.

HR2x only supports up to 2GB external drives.

Thanks. Looks like I won't be able to upgrade my storage capacity. I still need to replace the failing SATA drive. Can you recommend a new compatible 2TB SATA drive?

Any Green Caviar Western Digital HDD will work well with a 24.  Amazon usually has one model on sale.

TB, 2GB wouldn't even be a HD Recording.

You would be wasting 1TB.  The limit on an HR24 is 2TB.

And this drive:

Working well so far.

Surely if you ask enough, the answer will change in your favor. ;)

Can I re-activate an HR-20 700 with a new access card and be able to view programming on my e-sata drive?

Is the programming on your e-SATA drive from the same HR20?  If the answer is yes, then yes you can reactivate the HR20 and watch the programming on the HDDVR

I purchased the WD30EURX and the Anker® USB 3.0 & eSATA to SATA External Hard Drive Docking Station, it seems to be working for my HR44-500. For the HR24-500 I purchased the WD20EURX along with the Thermaltake BlacX eSATA USB Docking Station. The DVR reboots and freezes. any recommendations for the HR24?

We have seen more complaints about the EURS HDDs than any of the WD Green HDDs.  I'd send it back and get a different model.  I kinda doubt that the problem is with the dock.  Usually the problems we see with the docks are related to the on/off switch.  I can't remember having any other problems with my many docks other than the on/off switch.  I'd replace that HDD.

I've been using a couple of EZRX HDDs without any problems.  I have one in a dock and at least one internally mounted.  If you have the 3TB EURS and it's working as it should, I'd keep it.  The problems I've read about with the EURS HDDs usually show up right away.  I trust you've tried that 500 with the EURS off it and it hasn't shown any of the symptoms you've seen when the EURS is hooked up to it?
