Halifax, NS - Eastlink announced today it has enabled customers from coast to coast to easily and cost-effectively quadruple the storage capacity of their DVRs.
“Our customers love their DVRs,” said Deborah Shaffner, president and COO of Eastlink.
“Our DVR Expander technology will enable customers to save all of their favorite programs without having to worry about filling their DVR.”
With the increasing popularity of both HD programming and Eastlink’s Multi-Room DVR, the need for increased DVR storage is growing rapidly.
How does DVR Expander technology work?
Eastlink customers can purchase an eSATA compatible external storage device at a consumer electronics store, plug it in to their DVR and follow a single onscreen prompt. It’s as simple as that.
All recorded programs from this point forward will save to that external drive, which, in most cases more than quadruples the DVR’s storage capacity. The maximum storage capacity is limited only by the size of the external drive.
The specifications of the eSATA device can be found at Eastlink.ca.
There is no Eastlink fee for enabling DVR Expander technology and it is available from coast to coast. Eastlink customers can refer to a brief DVR Expander How-to-Video through How To Videos OnDemand or at www.Eastlink.ca by clicking on ‘Support’, and then ‘How to Videos’.
