Just in case someone will ask again [here] - from software standpoint both ViP211 and 411 are the same.
From HW point of view - only Ethernet part is missing from 411.

Another success story. 500gb here. It works exactly as stated. It took five activation attempts, but all is well, now.

Just hooked up my external hard drive today and you would think its a regular HD DVR. You can't tell the diffence. It works the exact same way as all the others.

Does anyone know if the hard drive can work both with the 211 and 622. I have the AEP package, do I have to pay 2 activation fees or are they waived since I have AEP.

Thanks

They are separate and not compatible with each other. Two different development projects. Pay for each separate, but additional like setups are not charged, apparently.

I installed a 750 GB hard drive on my 211 receiver a few months ago and it has been working just fine.

Now, if I am watching something that has been recorded within the past couple of weeks, the playback will stop after several minutes and the receiver completely crashes and shuts itself off.

Anyone else been seeing this problem?

It's all related to software 524.
