    I have a Dish PVR-508 "Echostar" Model DP508
    Software Version P223DCKD-N
    Bootstrap Version - 23ABDCKD

    Can this unit be upgraded with a bigger hard drive for more recording time ?
    If so would Ghost be able to do this ?

    The short answer is no.

    The long answer is a couple of people have done it but it is not easy. You apparently have to get a certain brand/model of drive and then hack it. This would of course void all warranties.

    You can do a search here for the threads which talk about how someone did it.
