I have a VIP722 with an external hard drive and would like to take that hard drive and plug it into my VIP 612 to get shows off of it. Will the DVR want to reformat it? I don't want to lose the shows and will plug it back into the 722 when I'm done.

Should be a plug-and-play operation.

If your receiver balks, contact Dish and have them re-hit the receiver with your personal account code.

612/622/722/722k/922/Hopper all should be able to share EHD's on the same account (of course you can't have a Hopper with any of th eother receivers active simultaneously, but that's a different fairy tale.
Tuners: Hopper 2000; Hopper w/Sling; 3 Joeys; Samsung SIR-T351; Accurian 6000;2 X HD TiVo; 2 X TiVo Series 2 Stand alone; Panasonic Showstopper 2000
Dish 1000.2 @ 110, 119, 129; dish 500 @ 61.5
Antennas - CM4228; RS U75-R; coathanger; Funke PSP.1922 (stillin the box); paperclip
Displays: Sony VPH D50Q with HD Fury HDMI input; Hitachi 57F59; Sony Bravia LCD;Sanyo 32" LCD; Panasonic 42" plasma
Sony 80GB PS3; Toshiba HD-DVD

Give me a Finco colinear array and I'll rule the world - HA-HA-HA-HA!
