I bought a Polaroid DRA-01601A "cheap".
It was missing the DVD burner and HDD cables and the HDD.
While the cables are easy to replace (I think), I have no idea what HDD it uses nor what the format would be.

First of all with all do respect I do not have the polaroid drm 2001G. I have as I exprest in my letter to you the polaroid dra 01601A. The problem i had was an audio problem and i simply rechecked all my connections and found that I needed and extra set for HDMI plugs on my TV.
You will have to split the title and record on more than one DVD. The default speed is SP, that is 2 hours of recording. If you want to record longer programs, go into setup and change the default record speed to one of the other settings, for example: SP+ which is 2 1/2 hours or one of the other longer record settings. This DVD burner will only record at the same speed as you recorded to the hard drive. You can also edit out the commercials by using segment. Go to the title you want, press the right arrow, scroll down and select segment. When you want to start your edit, press enter. when you want to stop the edit, press enter again. You can use your right arrow to skip forward 30 seconds and your left arrow to skip back 10 seconds if you went too far when editing. You will see where your edits are on the screen by the darker color. Do this through the whole program. When you record to DVD, the commercials will not be recorded. Hope this helps you.
When in timeshift, press record on the remote (every time you push "record" 30 minutes are added) and make sure the program you are recording is not macro protected. If your program has already finished rewind to the beginning of the program and push record the correct number of times to cover your program and then press stop on the remote. It should then be at the bottom of your hard drive list.
99.9 % of the times its the capacitor which is blown. I had spent few weeks to investigate on this and ultimately found this solution. Till date I have replace two capacitors. To determine which capacitor is gone, Check on the flat silver surface of capacitor. If its not 100% flat it means its gone and you need replacement. Pl. check my attached file to understand on details of inside configuration.
Hopefully it works for you.
