Hello guys! Is it possible to transfer unwatched recordings on an external hard disk connected to a vip211 to my new vip922?

Nope. Locked to the 211k, and the drive will reformat if you put it on the 922.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

Unfortunately, no... those recordings are stuck with the 211 EHD.

Is there any way to backup the recordings in my PC and then watch them with my media player?

Negatory to that, too. I mean, you can back them up (search DishArc to find out more about that) but the files are unviewable.

You have a couple choices:
R5000-HD (not for 211k !);
Hauppauge card with HDMI/component input or
just any capture device (cheap USB will do) for SD quality (704x480), perhaps your recordings and desire will satisfied by the $15 solution ;).

Hmmm, too bad!!! I have a few recordings on my hard disk that I needed to move to other device because I'm passing the 211 to my mother.
