Hi everyone,

I bought a TiVo over the weekend and have to say its been pretty good. Does all the things I expect.
I also bought the Home networking package and TiVo Desktop plus key.

Based upon my conversations with the Harvey Norman staff, I expected that I could simply stream the video from my PC/Mac over the network to display on screen via my TiVo. This doesn't seem to be the case as the TiVo insists on copying the files from the PC/Mac to its own hard drive and running it from there.

So, given what I have read you can add an external HD via the eSata port rather than USB.

If that is the case, what HD am I able to use for external storage or can it be simply any HD I want?

Any help would be appreciated.
