    Will an external hard drive from my 711k play in the 211k on my account or will it ask to format and lose the shows?

    622/722/922/Hopper/Joey all can share an external drive... but cannot share with a 211.

    If you connect an EHD to the 211/211k, it will indicate it needs to be formatted, which means you will lose all content on the EHD if it is not new. Thanks.
