Nope...the drive is married to the receiver, so replacing it with a larger drive won't work. Also, the drive format isn't readable by a computer, so ghosting an image of it onto a new drive isn't possible either.

This topic will be moved to the Dish PVR forum in a day or so. Look for it there if you wish to continue it.
