@moosetender I don't expect a beta
@robnance also eSATA drive rigs seem to be going away in favor of USB
@exiva killing me --- no dates here or they take me out behind the shed and shoot me
@adamuspsu not available yet - we announced a more "green" STB was being tested and so happens that included info on the drive size.

From all the posts about new 320G Motorola DVR, I am still not clear will this new box be able to hook up to the external harddrive through USB? 320GB is certainly much better but getting external recording capacity is big plus

Perhaps I should wait to have Fios installed until these come out... or will I not have any issues getting one of these after having the current box?
Verizon will swap out the older box; they will ship you the new one and send a prepaid return label for the old box. Be aware that it will be another six to nine months before the QIP7232 is available to most customers (ETA October/November).

jmercado567 - I think 99% of FiOS customers would disagree with you. There are a lot of problems that come up on this forum, but very few of them have to do with FiOS having low-quality video.
I doubt this STB will have any significant changes to that, since all FiOS video is uncompressed.

I've yet to hear anyone ever complain about video quality. Everyone that comes over and see's the quality of my picture is impressed. Its the best picture I've seen on a TV yet.
Yep. In Sept. I will have had FiOS TV for 5 years, and I have never, ever seen a better picture on anybody else's TV using cable or satellite, even though my HD TV is 4+ years old. If the HD picture quality is bad, something very bad is wrong, either a setting in the STB or TV or in the cabling in the house or in the fiber connections or in the central office. For anybody that has poor HD picture quality, I suggest they see if their neighbors with FiOS see the same thing; if so, the problem is problably outside the house.
A common cause for poor picture is a loose coax connection or a defective splitter.
Just some thoughts.
