Running out of space on your Dish Network DVR?
Make the most of your Dish Network System by instantly adding up to 562 hours of Standard TV or 125 hours of High Definition programming to your DVR with Apricorn's DVR Expander.
If you have a Dish Network system you have access to the huge number of High Definition channels. 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 1 Terabyte, the DVR Expander for Dish Network allows you to instantly add up to 562 hours of standard TV or 125 hours of high definition programming to your Dish Network 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 Dish Network DVR?
High Definition TV
Setup takes just minutes…
Setting up the DVR Expander to work with your Dish Network receiver couldn't be easier. Simply connect the DVR Expander to your Dish Network receiver USB port (located on the back of your system), restart your Dish Network receiver and Dish Network's Program Scheduler will instantly update to show both your internal drive and the DVR Expander.
The pre-recorded programs on your Dish Network internal drive remain untouched. Now you can transfer recorded content off your DVR. From there, the program can be kept, watched or even sent back to the DVR.
Use Multiple DVR Expanders to Record, Archive and Organize Your Shows
Keeping your recordings organized is a snap with Apricorn's DVR Expander. Have one DVR Expander for all of your sporting events, one for your favorite movies and shows and one for cartoons for the kids. Now you never have to fight over recording space.
To play shows from your DVR Expander, simply transfer them to your Dish Network receiver using the DVR menu guide. To change to another DVR Expander, simply swap out the units and restart your Dish Network system. The Program Scheduler is automatically updated. It really is that simple!
