External DVR Sources

Can we provide an option to allow external source to display on the root DVR menu. Currently you must navigate to sources and select an external hard drive to see the contents. Having an option to make an external source display content on the base DVR menu would be extremely nice to have.

Seriously good idea, my family are always confused  as to where a particular recording is.

 

I'd like to expand on this to include an easier way to access home media content. Having to search between the three locations is a bit of a pain.

I use hard drive docks with internal hard drives in them.

 

The Dock is less than $40 at Best Buy and the 2TB drives are about $60 on NewEgg.

 

One dock per receiver (or two + for Hopper 3) and just buy extra internal drives to swap out as needed.
