It's not the hard drive giving the requirement, but the device trying to read the drive. I'd prefer to use NTFS as well, but it sounds like the DVR needs a more universal format.

I went off FAT32 because of the filesize limit, so I downloaded a Linux Live CD, booted it on my Proliant Microserver and formatted the drive EXT3.

I don't care what format the drive is, as long as the FOXSAT HDR accepts it. It did, and I'm now sorted.
