Hello all. New here, and been searching for HOURS, looking for an answer to my question. I want to add an external SATA drive to my new HD cablebox (Time Warner in Staten Island, NY). I tried this before with my old box (the Explorer non-HD one), and after I bought the drive and all, I found that TWC disabled the function so that I couldn't expand the storage capacity. Bad time indeed, considering I already bought the drive, opened it, and couldn't return it! From what I can ascertain, this is still the case, and TWC doesn't allow for expandability.
From what I can see here though, there are options, and even reading through everything, I still have no idea what to do, and don't want to buy ANOTHER external drive just to have it not work.
What I'd like to know is if there's a guaranteed method to expand my storage space with an external drive, with my HD box (SA Explorer 8300HDC), and my service provider (TWC in New York).
I apologize if this was answered already, buried somewhere in the forums...I just couldn't find anything. ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks guys.
