Yes, cutting up an old Credit Card into Strips is the Best Way to Get R Done!!!! :lol:


Can't imagine how he got the whole credit card over the clips. That top must be a lot more malleable than I thought.

Nothing better than popping a 2TB WD 24/7 Drive in an HR24-500 and just sitting back with a Big Ole Smile on your face.

No more problems with the External Drive Enclosure not working right.

Rich I steered you in the right direction didn't I???

Internal Drive is the way to go if you Own your DVR!!! :hurah:

We are alike in many ways especially when it comes to Directv and having more DVRs than most people can imagine or dream possible. :lol:

Yup, you sure did.

They do work better. I hope D* isn't gonna concentrate on only Genie-like DVRs. I like the flexibility of an HR with a 2TB drive on or in it.
