Available in two capacities (250- and 500 Gbytes), the Xpander will work with Time Warner's Scientific Atlanta 8300HD DVR as well as Cox Cable'sSA 8300HD and 8300 DVRs. As long as the DVR is equipped with an active eSATA port, the Xpander can be paired with the device, according to Apricorn.

Additionally, the Xpander will support dual tuner DVR functions, such as recording two high definition channels while simultaneously playing one back, the company said.

Maxtor, which was purchased by Seagate in late 2005, also makes external plug and play DVR drives for additional storage. The company's line of QVX Expander Plus drives come in 200- ($149), 300- ($199), 400- ($299), and 500GB ($349) models and also work with SA's 8300 series of DVRs.

Apricorn's Xpander is available now and is priced at $129 for the 250GB version and $199 for the 500GB model.
