Running out of space on your DirecTV DVR?
Make the most of your DirecTV System by instantly adding up to 1124 hours of Standard TV or 250 hours of High Definition programming to your DVR with Apricorn's DVR Expander
If you have a DirecTV system you have access to the largest number of High Definition channels in the industry. Unfortunately there is never enough space on the DVR hard drive to record everything you want to watch, especially if you are recording it in high definition. When the hard drive is full you must delete shows to free up space for the new programs you want to watch.
At a massive 2 Terabytes, the DVR Expander for DirecTV is the largest capacity DVR Expansion system on the market, allowing you to instantly add up to 1124 hours of standard TV or 250 hours of high definition programming to your DirecTV DVR.
The DVR Expander's sleek fanless design features a solid aluminum enclosure, great for heat dissipation even in cramped TV cabinets. The DVR Expander's versatile, stackable design enables the drive to be used in both vertical or horizontal configurations, giving maximum flexibility for your unique entertainment center arrangement.
DVR Expander is Perfect for:
• Recording shows during vacation
• Capturing long sporting events
• Recording the latest programs in High Definition
• Archiving your favorite shows
How many hours will the DVR Expander add to my DirecTV DVR?
High Definition TV
Setup takes just minutes…
Setting up the DVR Expander to work with your DirecTV receiver couldn't be easier. Simply connect the DVR Expander to your DirecTV receiver eSATA port (located on the back of your system), restart your DirecTV receiver and DirecTV's Program Scheduler will instantly update to show programs recorded on the DVR Expander.
The pre-recorded programs on your DirecTV internal drive remain untouched. To view your old programs, simply disconnect the DVR Expander from your system and restart your receiver. Your original recordings from the DirecTV receiver internal drive will now show on the Program Scheduler.

Your DirecTV receiver will play and record from the connected DVR Expander. To change to another DVR Expander, simply swap out the units and restart your DirecTV system. The Program Scheduler is automatically updated. It really is that simple!
