Has anyone tried to use a flash drive instead of an external hard drive?
Also, how many hours of tv can be stored on the internal 16gbs? I know on some devices that we stream, an hour show is about 1gb. If cm 7500 is similar, I wouldn't even need the external drive, as I only have about 6 hours of recordings on my device at any given time, since I delete them upon viewing them.
On recorders that use bit-rate recording, meaning the content is not changed, a 1080i/5.1 one hour recording is over 7GB and less than 8GB. I can't imagine a one hour program using 1GB unless it's analog.Quote:

I've read that 2 hours can be stored internally and that the DVR+ needs at least 80GB of external storage.
