    Thanks for that info. I think I like that option better since there is less of a chance of trashing the original.

    I had the hopper and three joeys installed last week and I have three WD EHD's I used with my old 922. The hopper sees all three EHD's in the transfer section but for viewing programs I can only see and use two drives,any ideas as to why I can't view programs on that third drive? I'm using a powered usb hub.

    That is a software limitation. The hopper can only display two external drives in the recordings screen.

    You know, after a year, the one remaining EHD we have still doesn't get recognized by either Hopper no matter what. Oh, well... I'm pretty much sure it doesn't matter anymore, but it would have been a nice thing to have. :)

    you have a good chance to recover your recordings by using Linux (search for the method by a keyword "DishArc")

    I have a 1T EHD with a lot of programming on it, and we are close to moving from our 722/612/612 setup to a Hopper w Sling/Hopper/Joey setup. My understanding is that the Hopper will recognize the EHD if it was formatted by the 722 - will it recognize it if it was formatted by the 612? I don't recall which IRD I used to format it - is there a way to tell?

    Thanks

    It should, if It Will Ask For Format Again, Cancel And Go With Linux/disharc Route.
