    We know that Humax are producing 1TB and 2TB versions of the FVP-4000T. Does anyone know if those of us wishing to upgrade our 500GB versions can replace the hard drive with larger sizes? This was not a problem with my old Foxsat-HDR and I assume would be ok here?

    I clicked on ikrans message to see the replies as I have just bought a 500GB model and would like to upgrade to at least a 1GB, if not 2GB, But there are no replies showing. So can anyone tell me if you can or cannot upgrade a %00GB FVP 4000?
    Thanks Boyd (mactoshb)

    I fitted a 2TB Seagate pipeline in a FVP-5000T You can find how to open the case in the faqs. The drive clips need opening a bit to accomodate the fatter drive. Dead simple even your recording schedule remains intact. you can copy your old recordings if you boot a PC into linux to the new drive if you get a sata to usb adaptor.

    Personally I wouldn't recommend that seller; the drives are probably "reconditioned". Some will be OK and some will fail in quite a short time. I would suggest a Seagate Skyhawk drive https://www.amazon.co.uk/Seagate-3-5-Inch-SkyHawk-Internal-Surveillance/dp/B01LOOJ8QM/ref=sr_1_3?
