    If I upgrade to a 922 from a 722 do I lose all my recordings that I have stored on the external HD attached to my 722?

    should not, but as usual you should activate 922 first and keep for while 722 active too, then connect 722's EHD to 922 and check, if it's not working - call CSR and ask to 'refresh' EHD support for the new DVR

    I have both, 722k and the 922. I switch my EHD between receivers with no issues.

    Last Saturday, I upgraded from a 622 to a 922. As there was an installer involved and I was upgrading, I'm not sure what order of activation/deactivation went on between the 2 receivers but I had no issues -- even though the installer had no idea about whether the EHD would work and keep the recordings.

    I was even impatient and plugged the EHD into the 922 right after the install was completed and it worked right away.
