Sorry if this has been covered. I am upgrading from a 622 to 722 and I was wondering if the current EHD will be ok for use with the 722 without it wanting to do a format ?

Thanks, Rick

Check your Household Key value on your 622. When your 722 gets installed, it should have the same value. If it does, no problem. If not, there was a three swap limit thus allowing you to swap between receivers three times. It should reassign your EHD to your new receiver at that point. Hopefully, your 722 will receive the same Household key your 622 had.

Check the Household key: Menu - 6 - 3 - Counters - Page Down six times.
