    Does Dish still charge $39 for adding an external drive to a 612?

    No. Only charge is on the 211/211k conversion to DVR.

    I guess OP will just have to decide which answer best fits his situation. ;)

    Another external drive question: Can I use one hard drive to archive recordings from two 622 receivers? I don't need the extra storage space but there are recordings on both I'd like to preserve in case I have a receiver failure or decide to upgrade to another receiver someday. If I don't have to pay to connect an external drive I might consider doing it just to preserve those old programs. Seems like it shouldn't be too hard to move the drive from one receiver to the other occasionally.

    612, 622, 722, 722K, 922, and presumably the forthcoming Hopper/Joey receivers all can share the same external hard drive.
