Western Digital’s My Library DVR Expander

I hear it quite often from people I know who own DVRs: “I wish I could record more HD, but it takes up so much room on my DVR.” Western Digital’s new My Library Video Edition DVR Expander could help solve their problem a bit.

The Expander can store up to 300 hours of digital standard-def broadcasts or 60 hours of high-def, based on 500 GB of hard-drive storage, Western Digital says.

My Library DVR Expander has been tested for compatibility with Scientific Atlanta 8300 Series digital video recorders (including models 8300 HD, 8300 MR and 8300 HD-MR). Further compatibility of the My Library Video Edition DVR Expander is planned as other cable and satellite DVR manufacturers enable the eSATA (external SATA) ports on their currently-deployed DVRs, according to the company.

Now available, consumers can order the $199.99 Expander directly from Western Digital at www.shopwd.com. Or visit www.westerndigital.com for further details.
