I was sent here from DTV forum. I did a search but didn't find the answer . . . maybe because I don't know the lingo. I'll be getting a Genie middle of May. Want to get an external hard drive for it. I've searched here but can find no list of acceptable HDs. I HAVE found any external drive that accepts eSATA will work. I've found specific mention of the Western Digital WDx0EURX. Looked it up in Google but can find no indication it accepts eSATA. WD support says the drive isn't compatible with eSATA. I can find plain 'ol SATA drives but no eSATA. How can I find if the WD drive will work with Genie? I'd appreciate anyone posting back with a compatible HD.
