Fixed it for you.
That is EXACTLY what you're saying, think about it...
If those are actually the only steps you took, you are still on the internal.
Do not infer that which I did not imply.
Nope. I'm on the external all right. I switched between them last night for the heck of it & confirmed it.
(I also know how to connect & operate an external drive.)
Dude, look I'll spell it out for you.
You claim that you put a brand new, unformatted, external drive on your unit and your SL's are still there.
You also claim you aren't saying the SL's are not stored on the drive.
Your 2 claims contradict each other!!!!
Not unless you completely powered down your DVR you aren't. You claimed you plugged in the external drive, powered up the external drive and walked away. If that's the case, which you claim it is, you are NOT using the external drive.
No, that's not what I claimed.
No, that's not what I claimed. Stop putting words in my mouth. I was stating a summarized version of what I did. I've done the procedure on several receivers, each time successfully. Everything starts from an unplugged state.
I'm running off the external drive.
And yet you have difficulty with a TT docking station. The easiest external device to hook up.
I didn't have difficulty with it; my eSata cable did. The Antec is far easier than the TT to connect. I'm not alone in this assessment.
Around and around and around.....
We'll just have to wait for his complaint that his "external" drive doesn't hold as much as others on this site are claiming.
Oh, it does. It's loaded up with a lot of HD recordings and still shows 89% free. :joy::icon_da:
Yes it is. You need to either remember what you post and keep your story straight or you need to re-read your posts so you can keep your story straight.
That's EXACTLY what you claimed. See above...
That won't happen, he'd have to admit he's wrong.
No, you need to stop misconstruing and assuming.
Interesting that you chose to skip over the post where I pointed out where you said I connected the drive, turned it on, & walked away". That proves I'm not assuming or "misconstruing" anything. It's in black and white for the world, or at least members here, to see.
The point is what you claim couldn't have happened, it's IMPOSSIBLE. Now give up and move on.
I also said it's plug-and-play, but that isn't to be taken literally because it was said to emphasize the ease of using these. I KNOW how to install and run these things. I've done more than one, each one successfully. I'm running the external drive. Period.
I can't help the fact that you cannot accept what is irrefutably true, and cannot also understand everyday colloquialisms.
I'm happily running a 2TB hard drive with no issues.
