* All TenBoxes TB1000, TB1500, TB2000 and TB3000 are compatible with all DirecTV Plus HD DVR except for HR21-100 and HR22-100 which are compatible with TB1000 and TB1500. Since DirecTV upgrades their DVRs software periodically, it is possible that these models will accept larger external capacities in the future.
** DirecTV Plus HD DVRs are not ready yet to function with 3TB external capacity. Until then, the TenBox TB3000 works perfectly when setting the “Box Mode” to Mirror Drive configuration, safely recording programs as duplicate on its 2 - 1.5 TB HDD, so programs are not lost in the event of single drive failure.

USB 2.0: up to 480 Mbps
eSATA : SATA I - Up to 1.5 Gbps
eSATA : SATA II - Up to 3 Gbps
TenBox connects to the DirectTV Plus HD DVR always at the full 3Gb/s assuring the highest level of performance & bandwidth and uninterrupted video delivery capability - up to 10 television streams at once.
SATA Hard Drives
2 high performance SATA Hard Drives with multiple stream recording capability (up to 10 television streams at once) optimized to deliver smooth video recording and playback with quiet HDD operation (operating acoustics as low as 2.7 bels for near-silent operation).
Improved stream integrity through time-limited commands: "Hard drives designed for PC applications are optimized for data integrity through enhanced error detection and correction routines". Consumer video recording devices, however, need to be optimized for stream integrity to avoid problems caused by over-execution of error checking, which can cause problems in consumer video recording devices. Reduced power consumption.
eSATA HDD Controller
RAID SATA controller with Plug-n-Play capability, the TenBox is also compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux environments.
Box mode switch selects 2 operating modes:
"0" for maximum storage capacity (striped drive), capacities of both hard disk drives are combined.
"1" operates at half the maximum capacity, storing programs in "mirrored drive" configuration, so programs are not lost in the event of single drive failure.
Noise and Cooling
3 Ultra-quiet low-noise magnetic levitation system fans : utilizing the attraction of the magnetic levitation force, Magnetic Levitation eliminates the wobbling and shaking problems of traditional motor fans.
Fan speed selection switch.
Elastomeric hard drive and fan mounts: stop the transfer of structural vibration from the drives and fans to its mounting structure for less sound radiation and quieter operation.
Strong heat dissipating aluminum alloy enclosure and hard drive encasing.
Specially formulated hard drive cooling and mounting materials and composites to reduce vibrations and dissipate heat and shock - energy.
Vandal proof power switch with illuminated blue ring.
5 LEDs indicate status of HDDs and diagnose of operation
