HHD for Humax HD Fox T2

Okay guys and gals,

Since I have a bit of time on my hands I've decided to upgrade this little dreambox to record TV shows and the like. First time I've looked at it since I got it to stream from YT and BBC iPlayer.

But, I'm a bit overwhelmed with what is out there in the market regarding an external HHD, so can anyone point me in the right direction as to which will be suitable for the HD Fox T2 and does it matter if it needs a power source or not?

Thanks in advance :D

Thanks. So I take it using it from the mains doesn't matter then. I read a lot... And I mean a lot of forums via Google who suggested that an external HHD will need to be powered from the mains.

Just plug it in and let the Humax format it (Ext3) and designate it for recording. Away you go.
Tesco have them for a few pounds more.
