Designed and built with home theater pundits in mind, the Tenlab TENBOX TB3000 3 TB HDTV/Multimedia Storage Box combines high-end functionality and versatility, with abilities to record your favorite TV shows onto a high-capacity, internal hard disc drive. It works in conjunction with Direct TV HD DVRs, increasing the recording capabilities to 1000 (safe mode) hours of standard definition, and up to 250 (Safe Mode) hours of high definition programming.
Moreover, this powerful unit offers high-end features that will be hard to match. By incorporating 3 extra silent fans with Magnetic Levitation Technology, this box prevents excessive over heating which is a common problem with HDD system failure and loss of programming. Aside from its rugged chassis and silent performance, the TENBOX offers easy connectivity, reliable 24/7 operation, and a graphite color metallic chassis that will complement any home theater decor.
250 (Safe Mode) Hours/Full High Definition 1000 (safe mode) Hours/Standard Definition 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.
