Just got some bad news from Scott Koucerek, Stuart Sweet and Doug Brott that the next series of DirecTv firmware will not allow the use of any drive over 2Tb.
I received a 3Tb drive in a warranty replacement a couple months ago and it has worked fine up until the last two CEs.
If anyone has any use for a 3Tb drive and would like one in exchange for a 2Tb WD green drive, please PM me.

I strongly suspect that few, if any, reading this thread will be able to help you here, due to the fact that they'll be in the same boat, too. However, others not in CE, or not even connected with sat service may jump at it.

Good luck!

Not a surprise since current firmware doesn't support 3TB either.
Actually, the current NR as well as CEs up to the last two, did, in fact support the use of 2Tb of a 3Tb drive.

As far as a trade, I was thinking that if someone was using a 2Tb drive in a computer or NAS, there might be some interest in a trade up to 3Tb.
