    It's fully supported by vix mate if you put that image on it. Regarding the hard drive I have an external usb 500 gig hard drive with no problems (touch wood). Good choice.

    HDDs are usually backwards compatible.

    Yeh, should work mate. You must be planning a lot of recording. Mine is usb3 and works fine as woody6222 says usb's are backwards compatible. Not sure about the 2Tb tho.
