Don't know if the moderators will let this message show - I hope they do. I am not bad mouthing Verizon - rather I offer solution:
There is an elegant solution to the DVR recording capacity problm: Get a TiiVO DVR!
I don't work for TiiVO - I am a potential Verizon FiOS customer. I have seen a lot of complaints about the Vrizon STB and DVR (bad/slow user interface, limited functionality, can't expand capacity - the works!), so I did some research and discovered that you can connect a TiiVO DVR instead of the Verizon DVR. You get a much better user interface (TiiVO DVRs consistently get the best reviews), and you can easily add an external hard disk with an eSATA interface (which is a lot faster that USB 2.0 High-speed!). You do have to pay for the TiiVO equipment (both an equipment fee - $300 for an HD DVR, and a monthly service fee - or $400 lifetime, but you can save money on both by purchasing from one of the power sellers on eBayy that specialize in TiiVO equipment. You will have to pay Verizon a fee for a Cable Card(s) which plug into the TiiVO DVR and allow access to the services you purchase from Verizon, but overall you will pay about the same for a better user experience.

Has this been resolved yet?
Is there a way to add a additiona harddrive, use Media Manager to store to PC, get newer model that has larger harddrive?
No Motorola DVRs support storage expansion and that will not change soon. Verizon has no plans to support storage on a computer with their own DVRs.
Verizon does plan to offer more storage expansion options before the end of this year. This may come in the form of a new DVR with a larger hard drive, a DVR that supports external drive expansion, or both. Customers can wait for those options to become available, or they can buy their own CableCard DVR with storage expansion (TivoHD or Moxi) for use with FiOS service.
Verizon does some have some exciting announcements (non-DVR) coming later this month. Stay tuned.
