  1. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    Does anyone have any real-world experience on using different Western Digital HDs as external drives? Specifically is there any real pros or cons to using either the WD purple vs the WD Red Pro? Both are 8TB drives, SATA III 6 Gb/s, spinning at 7200rpm with 256MB Cache, 5 year warranties and...
  2. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion

I mentioned about possibly upgrading to HD (currently we have two HD TVs in our bedroom an family room but standard Tivo DVRs (an R10 and a DSR704).
