If you are talking about using the External Hard Drive Feature (Required one time 39.95 activation fee) then yes you can. You just need to plug your EHD in, copy the files and when you get your replacement 722 plug the EHD and you can access them directly off the EHD.

If you are talking about just copying them off the 722 and copying back on to your new 722. No you cannot do that.

Maybe I can do some conivin with Dish.I had a David Gilmore concert on #1 that I never did find again because they switched to paladia.I guess the best thing to do is pay the 39.95 and back everything up with the hdrive.

Hello everyone!!
I am new to this board, but like most i am here looking for answers. My 722 and 508 have recently started rebooting at random intervals. I have installed DN systems for several years and most of the problems of this nature that i run across are cause by bad ground or just plain bad power coming into the home. The newer receivers cannot cope with fluctuations in the power source like the older models. I have a dedicated circuit just for my entertainment center and installed my system to specs. My problem started a few days after i received the new smart card in the mail and followed the instructions to update. Could this just be coincedence. Both boxes have run without a hitch for about a year. SO !! whats up with that, E* ????

This thread is a few months old now but I wanted to share my experience. I have a 622 that did the constant reboot, I fixed it by getting a new power strip after reading here about the whole power surge fiasco. However, now when I try to view my external HD I get the message that its set up for another receiver and I need to delete all my events to continue. I contacted 2 different Dish techs and both told me I had no choice but to delete. I told them I've read about Dish being able to re-auth the receiver to allow the ext HD to work, but both said the receiver is auth'd, and for some reason the receiver doesn't recognize the ext HD after the reboot issue.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
