I am currently using an external drive hitched up to my staellite reciver as a PVT....works great!!!
However, is there an external hard drive that, when not in use after a while, will automatically go to sleep? The one I have now will always run.

My Seagate FreeAgent Pro 500GB disc does go to sleep by itself. This is in spite of the fact that I have set Windows to not turn off hard drives. I actually find it a bit annoying to have to wait for it to wake up every time. Wanna trade?
Note that mine is two years old now. I don't know if newer models behave the same.valvehead//
Here in the USA a External drive hooked up to a HR series DirecTV DVR will always run as it is always being used. A External hooked up to a Dishnetwork DVR can go to sleep. Since I don't know where you are that is all I can offer.If I'd known I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself.
