Just got the email, 

Your Wait for the Verizon FiOS TV 500GB DVR Is Over

 

The h3ll it is! ..... for 3 reasons and 2 reasons especially:


1.  The cost of hard drive storage has plummeted.  Micro Center is now selling 2 TERABYTE drives for $69.99 and 1 TB drives for $44.99.


2.  Your existing DVR recordings are not transferrable to the new box.


3.  You cannot plug in an external hard drive into this new box.


The link on the picture of the new box in the email doesn't even work.


AT&T uVerse has had a 500GB DVR box available for over a year now,

 

So just who the heck is Verizon kidding on this?

The 500 gb drives can have another 1 tv external slapped onto them through sEats. So 1.5tb total if hove an external.

The external 1 TB add on by eSATA will not be enabled until IMG 1.9 is rolled out some time later this year.
