@slprp1 I am using a WD Elements 2 TB external USB 2.0 HDD. It has it's own power supply and has performed flawlessly on the DVR+.
A question, are the drives you are using USB powered, or do they have there own power supply?
I'm new to this forum. Just recently decided to cut the cord with my cable company and go to OTA TV. My reception is great, but I miss the DVR. So I've been checking out this forum as I've been looking at getting a OTA DVR.
I really want to record two OTA programs as once, so the Channel Master DVR+ came to my attention.
I have a WD My Book and was planning on using it with the DVR+ but was a little concerned that CM had 3 Seagate (and only 3) HDD's recommended. So your post about using your WD MyBook caught my attention.
What model specifically are you using?
Mine is a 1TB #WDBABT0010HBK-NESN. I'm wondering if you have the same model and only the size is different.
I also have a WD My Book but I don't know the model. It works great with the DVR+.
