I have added a 3 terabyte western digital drive to my verizon fios dvr box. I already have successfully attached a 500 gb hitachi drive and it has changed everything. I can finally record in hd. I wanted to up the space so i bought the 3 terabyte drive. I saw now difference in extra space so i am considering returning it and buying a 1 terabyte drive. I will report back if i can get it to work.

I have successfully added a Seagate 1TB Barracuda HDD.
TECH stuff: 1TB 32MB (cache) 7200RPM ST310005N1A1AS-RK
Enclosed in a Sabrent 3.5" SATA/IDE Hard Drive Aluminum Enclosure.

(I wrote which enclosure I used as reference for what works, just in case anyone wanted to know what I used. Not trying to advertise or anything like that)

I hope this helps.

I just added a Western Digital WD Elements 2 TB USB 2.0 Desktop External Hard Drive.
Had to remove the eSATA drive from the original case and put it in one compatible with the FIOS eSATA plug. A $25 add on.
So far 20 hrs HD recorded - 6% full
Will let you know what happens when I get to 50%.

Tony, are you able to use more than 1TB ? On another forum someone posted that the DVRs won't recognize more than 1tb of external storage. Thanks.

@tony213: how has the storage worked out on your larger esata drive?
