Should have no Problem with any of the SATA II HDDs. My OLD PVR for recording TV programs used and old 80 gig IDE HDD!!!
For that matter, The recording from TV to DVDs (which I also use) works great and that is much slower than a HDD interface.

My preference would be the Samsung F3, followed by the WD blacks (For reliability).
