I've changed the hd in a manhattan 7000, fortecstar and a topfield4000 all successfully. 40gb is too small, you want at least 80gb or better still 120gb as i have. All work fine using either a seagate or maxtor hd with 7200rpm spin speed.

is it possible to plug the harddisk into the computer and read the contents of the recording?
So that recorded video can be saved on DVD

There is a special computer program for doing this with the Topfield (see: http://topfield.mira.lu/ ) so there might be one for the Xtreme. I suggest you search the xtreme BBS (http://www.xtreme-stb.com/) and the net.
