Can view older content from HD
Posted 24 September 2011 - 10:14 AM
Just upgraded to whole home and some more HD receivers.
My HR-21 used to be my main DVR, it was connected to an external drive (terabyte). I kept HR-21 but put it in my BR (never had HD there). I put one of the new HR-24's in my main room now and connected to external drive. Seems like I am unable to play any content now on any of the whole home dvr's that is on the external drive. Any new content plays back fine everywhere from that drive.
Do I have to connect that external driv back to the HR-21 to access any of that content? Maybe HR-24 doesn't even need bigger drive, no idea how large that drive is..

The HR24 has a 500GB drive.

Guess makes more sense to have it with the DVR with the smallest internal drive. Not sure how the noisy HD will be at night.
