OK, I ordered a Cavalry eSATA 500GB drive, and it works with my Comcast of South Florida SA Explorer 8300HD (I was pretty sure it would, since the database indicated that it worked with that box, albeit in other regions).
It asked if I wanted to format the drive, and I selected "Yes," and then started recording some HD programming to quickly fill up the internal drive.
My question is, how can I see how much space is now available on the new drive? Right now, when I go to "Available Recording Space," I only see the space from the internal drive.
Do I have to wait for it to fill up the internal drive first?
