    can i take my EHD on my 211, remove it and then use it to back up something on my computer and then hook back up to my 211 and still have the previously recorded shows available?

    The EHD was partitioned and formatted by the 211, with a Linux-based file-system that your computer won't understand. The only way for your computer to recognize the drive would be to format it on your PC, which would mean that all of the DVR data would be lost.

    Why don't you look into a ZIP external drive?
