Can I plug 1TB external hard drive via ESATA connector to the back of the Hopper?
Posted 01 November 2012 - 06:17 PM
I searched this forum but didn't find any definitive answer. I didn't want
to just try it, in case anything blows up.
My 1TB external hard drive has both USB 2.0 and ESATA connectors.
I backed up about 200GB of programs from the 722k DVR to the drive,
just before my Hopper was installed. I want to transfer some of them
to the Hopper's internal hard drive. It's copying via USB right now... but
I was hoping to use the ESATA.(which is much faster than USB)

"Belligerent and numerous."
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.

But it will tell you the feature not available yet.
