I'm thinking of archiving movies, events, etc. What is the recommended EHD for compatibility, ease of use or whatever with the vip922.
Thank you

I've had very good luck with Western Digital My Book Essential drives. I have four of them ranging from 320MB to 1TB.

I'm using Western Digital Essentials as well.

Basically the same drives work for 622/722/922... so if you check the threads in the other forums for other Dish receivers, the same advice should hold true for the 922.
