Purchased to expand capacity of Shaw Direct HDPVR 630 receiver. Easy to set up and did not delete programming already recorded in the system. The increased capacity was added to the system and new recordings were automatically added next in line to the recordings which were in the pvr menu before the installation. Increased my recording capacity significantly and since it was installed about two months ago has been working flawlessly. Definitely would recomment this product.

I bought 3 of these. I have 2 Telus 6131 hd satellite receivers and also the 9241 pvr unit. These units are the same hardware as Bell's..just with Telus format.
I shut off the power to the receivers, hooked up the DVR expanders, turned on the power. The receivers automatically recognized the hard drives and a message popped up saying the receiver needed to reboot to add the new features. I accepted and receivers were rebooted...becoming PVRs after waiting a fair bit of time for the units to change configurations. The key here is to let the updating do its job even if you think nothing is happening. It has not stalled but will eventually reboot turning your hd receivers into PVRs. All I can say is these hard drives are a bit more expensive but they work...absolutely flawless. I have not yet hooked up to the 9241 unit as I am doing some work on that area of the house. However I don't think I'll have any problems adding more room to the PVR unit either.

I can now record over 125 hours of HD programming with this product.

Follow these steps to get it working:

1. Turn off the 8300HD PVR.
2. Unplug the 8300HD PVR.
3. Plug in the Expander.
4. Turn on the Expander.
5. Connect the eSATA cable between the 8300HD PVR and the Expander.
6. Plug in the 8300HD PVR.
7. Wait a minute or two for the PVR to boot up.
8. Power on the 8300HD PVR.
9. You should see a message asking if you want to format the drive. Respond yes.
10. Once the formatting has finished, check your recorded list and then press B to see the percentage of space used. It should now be down to a low number somewhere around 15 or 20 percent. If not, turn off the 8300HD PVR, unplug it, wait a few seconds and then plug it back in to get the PVR to reboot.

I purchased this for my Shaw Direct 630 receiver and it works perfectly. My storage usage went from 43% to 9%. Set up was easy and the drive is very quiet. Well worth every penny.

When I bought my new Shaw PVR I found out about adding an expander. A friend has a similar unit and my experience with Western Digital drives convinced me to buy this one. I've had this drive for about six months and have had no issues at all. It installed very easily and works exactly as it should, and it is very quiet. I've been able to record and watch a different program at the same time and I've never experienced any loss of data (picture and sound). Because it is in a vertical stand, it takes up very little space beside the TV.

If I ever fill this drive with TV shows and movies, I will consider buying a second one, but the most space I've used so far is just over 60%. I do recommend this unit to anyone who has a PVR that is capable of using such a drive.

Purchased this device from Amazon.ca to use with my Shaw Direct HDPVR630 receiver after reading rave reviews from other users. My first experience was not very favorable. I spent many hours trying to set up this device with help from Shaw Direct Technical assistance but was unable to format this device.
I returned this device to Amazon.ca and requested a replacement. They promptly sent me a replacement. This second unit was successfully formatted within minutes and I am very pleased with its performance. It has dramatically increased by storage capacity.
I am very impressed with Amazon's return policy. It is very simple, prompt and on time. I give Amazon high marks for their service and would not hesitate recommending them to other customers.

Hooked up to Shaw Direct satellite and works great delivering great picture quality along with sound. It records so far great. Highly recommend only wish they had a 2TB eSATA External hard drive that I could download more.

From the time I opened the box, to the time I had successfully installed this expander took about 10 minutes. I instantly went from having used up 78% of my recording space to only 15%!

I had, prior to ordering the expander, obtained information from a Shaw Direct tech. rep. by phone call on how to install it for that company's equipment, so for anyone contemplating getting one of these, that would be a good first step, because there are no useful instructions provided in that regard in the box. I expect that may be because the installation procedure may vary somewhat between the different PVRs used by different TV providers.
