    I've been looking around for a while. Any recommendations for an external HD that is both FW800 compatible and has NAS capability (for Time Machine backups)?

    It is a little more expensive then you might think, but well worth the prices especially if you have as much media, music and photos and videos as I do, besides it uses 3.5" disks which are way cheaper then other types of disks.

    It's a Drobo

    www.drobo.com

    You can get it for a fair price at www.tigerdirect.com

    There is also the network adapter you need if you want to put it on the network, but what I did was attach it to my Airport Extreme on the USB port but when I have to transfer large files I attach to it via USB or FW400
