Seagate introduces 400GB eSATA External DVR Hard Drive

Seagate announces a 400GB external hard drive especially for digital video recorders and setop boxes.

At the National Show in San Francisco, Seagate will demonstrate its External DVR Hard Drive plugged into the Scientific-Atlanta Explorer 8300 Series DVR. The hard-drive features up to 400GB of additional TV storage in a single plug-and-play box - the highest capacity in the industry - and offers 1394, USB, or the new high-performance eSATA interface.

In addition, Seagate today unveils a new application of its DriveTrust technology that enables cable service operators and DVR makers to lock external storage devices to a specific DVR or other device. Ok that is not so handy. It would be nice to use the external DVR drive to be able to also use it on a PC to watch TV recordings there. DriveTrust could be used to block that.
More details in the Seagate press-release.
