Is anybody able to give me a rough guesstimate of the "hourly" disk usage that I could expect in using a TEAC HD-B6T as a PVR?

Also, has anybody got any brilliant idea on how to plug in a USB device without making it look all horrible since the port is (unfathomably) in the front smack up behind the cover so the cover has to be open to plug in the USB.

Hi James

sleemanj: Is anybody able to give me a rough guesstimate of the "hourly" disk usage that I could expect in using a TEAC HD-B6T as a PVR?

Most likely the same as any other PVR. I don't know of any PVR that re-encodes on the fly - most just record the stream as they receive it from the air. I can't recall the bitrates off the top of my head, but TV One and TV 2 are roughly 10 Mbps, TV 3 a bit higher at maybe 13 Mbps, and all the rest sit at around 3-5 Mbps...

Unfortunately not. When we had one we had the same issue, having the usb plugging in front of the unit. A really Poor design.

I popped the lid on this one I have here and surprisingly the USB socket is connected to the main board with a cable and header, so I reckon 1 side of one of these http://www.trademe.co.nz/Computers/Cables-adaptors/USB/auction-360544409.htm combined with the innards of one of these http://www.trademe.co.nz/Computers/External-storage/External-hard-drives/auction-360812796.htm and a 2.5" SATA, could all be easily mounted on the underside of the lid, there is masses of of room, most of the device is just empty space.

No soldering required and could be put back to normal literally in seconds.
