You own or rent a Scientific Atlanta 8300HD (or 8300SD) cable tuner & digital video recorder (DVR/PVR). It currently holds either 10 or 20 hours (80GB or 160GB) of high definition video (or 90 hours of standard definition video). Many users find that they exhaust their storage space quickly. Therefore we offer you an external SATA hard drive that connects to the SATA port on the back of the SA 8300HD. It allows you to record an extra 36 hours of high definition television (or an extra 160 hours of standard definition video).

We have selected the Maxtor DiamondMax 10 hard drive (faster than the Maxtor QuickView Expander drive), it leverages the core technology of Maxtor QuickView consumer electronics (CE) hard drives, which power a high share of today's DVRs worldwide. Different than a standard PC hard drive, Maxtor QuickView CE drives are designed for streaming media applications and offer exceptional performance and advanced features that enhance the digital entertainment experience.

Life in a desktop computer doesn't compare to the extreme environment in an always-on, high duty cycle digital video recording system. What's needed is a drive engineered to thrive in a high-intensity video system while still offering traditional low cost-per-capacity desktop value.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How are programs stored on the Scientific Atlanta 8300HD once an external disk is installed?

Recordings are balanced between the internal hard drive on the 8300HD and the external SATA drive as follows:
A recording is not split between an internal and external hard drive.
The 8300HD automatically stores complete program using the following space available logic:
If the external SATA drive has more space available, the SATA drive stores the next recording.
If the internal hard drive on the 8300HD has more space available, the internal hard drive stores the next recording.
