SKIPPA / Re: Additional storage for Skippa

The max internal HDD size is dictated by the form factor choosen; the Skippa has 2.5" interal HDD wheras the T4 has a 3.5" HDD. At the presnet time I beleive the max 2.5" AV HDD is 1TB; the largest 2.5" drives are only 2TB. For 3.5" HDD you can easily find 6TB AV dives, and I think there are 8TB models. Once the 2.5" for factor was decided on, the 1TB limit was imposed by what is available in the market.

In that case that was a very poor and somewhat inexplicable decision for a device that could have easily housed the larger drives!   :(

I'm sorry to keep harping on this but my original question still stands - 'Why can't a larger drive be at least an option?'

If the Beyonwiz T4 can come with a 4tb drive, surely the Skippa can have more than 1tb.  And if it did, this whole issue would go away or at least become much less dire.  Who really wants to be stuffing around with moving files between drives anyway?

The real unknown is how must storage will be taken up by the add-skipping information for each recording.

All the more reason, I reckon, that it is a shame that the Skippa isn't available with a larger drive.   :)

I really like what I've heard so far about Skippa and am very tempted to place an order but am I the only one who thinks that 1tb is a tad small - especially considering the Skippa's three tuners!   :)

Is IceTV considering offering a 2tb version?  Our current machine is a TiVo with 1.16tb and it full.  My wife and I often record an entire series before starting to watch it.  We have, for example, a complete set of 'The Wire' ready to be watched at some future date!

I know it is possible to archive files onto a USB drive but we don't want to have to stuff around with that - we just want to have ready access to a large collection of files and, let's face it, a 2tb drive is not an unreasonable/expensive option these days.
