What HDD do DVR's use?

  VideoSentry 15:52 11 Jan 2006

Has anyone opened their HDD recorder to look? I was just wondering if a get 80Gb HDD how easy is it to change? Is it like a PC with 3.5" or does it use 2.5" jobs?

From what I read somewhere else, cant remember where, the power supply will only cater for the existing setup. People who have tried to upgrade to a bigger HDD have had the machines burn out. BE WARNED !!!

It could be a small unit but I would suggest it is acompletely differnt animal from your avarage Desktop/lappie and as suggested by amona - not an 'upgrade' option.

Okay it's different but this link "click here" describes with good pictures the hard drive upgrade of the Pace Freeview twin tuner box.
