I looked through the F.A.Q. section(not all 21 pages) and just looking to clarify a couple of things. I have an HR23-700 and was wondering which brand to get (low cost,yet dependable). I understand that if I do this I can't use the internal and external drives at the same time. So to access my internal drive I would need to turn the power off to the external drive then red button reset to be able to access the internal one. If I go this route when I get the external drive when I install it I need to turn off the HR box,hook it up,power it on and let it spin up then turn the HR back on and in a perfect world I would be all set to save the programs to the new drive. Sorry for all the seemingly basic questions for you folks,but I'm not real tech savy with these kind of things. I looked around at Amazon.com and there are so many different external drives,I don't have clue on which one to get. Thanks for helping me out.
