I was pysched to read several resources saying the SA 8300 series (from Cablevision) had the eSATA port unlocked and would work great with the Western Digital SVR extender.
So i ordered a 1TB model and tried to hook it up yesterday.
No response from the DVR at all. No prompt for formatting. No errors. No change in "free space" (currently at 92%
I read somewhere this morning that there is a 500GB limit, but i can't find confirmation on that. Anyone know if that's true?
Note that i can hear the drive spin-up when i plug in the power and the light turns on.
I haven't called cablevision yet because i haven't had the best experience with their tech support in the past... i figured you guys would have better info.
I searched several times in the forum but there were just comments like "I heard there might be a 500GB limit....". i'd like to hear is someone knows for sure.
Thanks a lot.
