I've been using this 1TB WD drive for over a year now with no issues (and no external power required):

I'm keeping an eye on Amazon's HW-150 prices. They've ticked up a bit this year but hopefully they'll drop back down before long.

Why not replace the caps?

Okay had this thing a little over a week now and so far it more headache than anything. have done the firmware upgrade which corrected the date. Now every time I try to schedule more than 1 timer recording it says there is a event conflict when there is no conflict at all anyone have the same problem? Also is there anyway to change the time from military to standard?

There's a bug where it will falsely report a conflict if you try to set up a timer that crosses midnight and there are any other timers for that day.

Workaround is to create the midnight-crossing timer first, then create the other timers for that day.

I've been wondering if the developers might have addressed other bugs when they fixed the closed captions to work during playback. Apparently this bug wasn't fixed.

And unfortunately I'm not aware of a setting for 12-hour time.
