    Does anyone know if there is any hope in fixing the 866 Error that is preventing me from accessing the content on my EHD that I transferred from my 622 receiver and now can't access on my Hopper w/sling due to the 866 error that comes up and offers to format my External Hard Drive. I have had this problem since my upgrade over 6 months ago and it seems like this problem has existed with other customers for years. So far dish network has done nothing to help. Is there any hope for a fix in the future?

    if you're little familiar with Linux (just boot it from CD w/out install to HDD), connect clean EHD what is accepting by H2 and your 622's EHD and do copy of a folder(s) - (search here for "DishArc" keyword)

    Did you connect your EHD to your Hopper prior to it pushing live TV and being activated?

    I'm thinking the EHD was not connected to the Hopper prior to it being activated. I had the local installers who handled the upgrade connect the new receiver and I have a feeling they didn't plug in the EHD and I had to do so after they activated my new receiver. If that is where the problem came from, do you think it might work to have Dish Temporarily deactivate my receiver, wait 15 or 20 minutes, then reactivate it again with the EHD Attached? Would that do anything?

    it would be easy to ask them send a "hit", eg re-activated EHD feature

    They already have sent multiple re-hits over the past 6 months without any change.

    do you need to preserve recording on the EHD ? make a copy using Linux
