I am in NYC I have the samsung 3090.
I installed the WD DVR 500gb expander.
After a couple of tries it was recognized and I was prompted to format it.
After the reboot the DVR dropped from 50% full to 10%.
Once I got to about 17% it started to delete older material to make room for new recordings.
I called Time Warner, they dont support it.
I called WD, they don't support the dvr expander.
TW also supplies the SA 8300HDC but WD said they didnt support that either.
