The connectors do look the same, but one picks up the screen connection internally.

You might have to try it both ways, and will need to drill out the blanked hole at the mainboard end.

I am pleased to say that my cable worked the first time I tried and without any need to drill out holes. When I powered the PVR up I was pleased to see a warning about erasing data on the disk, so I carried on. I think the WD Green drive is quieter than the one I had before. Copying the few recordings back onto the disk using Altair is a slow process.

Thank you for your help.
