Hi I want to change the elderly hard drive currently attached to my HD-T2 mainly because it's pretty clunky (a lot of drive clicking) and constantly needs its filesystem checked. The HD is used for ad-hoc recording - usually once a day when/if there is a clash and two tuners on the HDR aren't enough. My previous box could cope with recording back-to-back programmes on the same mux without needing to tie up both tuners but I've not spent the time tell the HDR how to do that - if it can. I was considering a 64gb flash drive since the primary purpose will be to load the CF and mount the HDR and other network servers, but I do want recording capability. Are such devices fast enough? Are there any side-effects / downsides to using a solid state device? For example, will the HD be able to recognise it as the PVR-drive (even if I have to assign it manually? Will boothdrmode work, so that I can still get recordings onto the HDR and thus decrypted? If solid-state isn't the way to go, can anyone recommend a very quiet alternative hard drive?
