I noticed that the eSATA FAQ does not list the HR24 receiver. I'm wondering if swapping out the internal HDD of the HR24 is as easy as it was on the HR20. I seem to recall that I pretty much just swapped out the hardware and the BIOS did the formatting and all. I did a bit of searching and am not able to find out if the HR24 supports larger internal HDDs like the HR20 did. Any hints? Thanks in advance.

I'm wondering if it was real "a bit of searching" ? Or ? Why the thread is not found ? http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=175966

I'm wondering why you didn't see THIS post.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
