6/12 Recording DVR question

Message 1 of 5
(1,649 Views)

I've been trying to get a straight answer out of Verizon on chats, but I get different answers. Can anyone tell me if I can hook up an external hard drive? I have the drive with my current DVR, looking to see if I can continue using it.

 

Thanks.

I have a 1TB external and my daughter comes close to filling it up with only 2 shows at a time. Give her 6 and 1TB wouldn't be close to enough.

Keep in mind that if anything happens to DVR, you lose all your recordings.

No way to back them up.

Same with your external drive. If drive or DVR fails, you lose them all.
