    I have recently purchased TheBox.
    I used to have V+ and i want to be able to do the same things with thebox as i could with v+

    Does anyone know if thebox allows the user to purchase a separate hard drive and link the two so that programs received on channels through thebox can be recorded and viewed later.

    the type of hard drive im thinking of purchasing is a dvd recorder with hard drive.

    can anyone help with this?

    You need The Box PVR model to do this. The standard box will not have this function as it has a single tuner and no HD.
