Replacement hard drive for my 622
Posted 11 March 2013 - 05:05 PM
Since I have to replace it, I might as well upgrade to a 1TB drive which I read somewhere I can do, but have never replaced a HD in a Dish receiver before. Sooooo my question is can I upgrade to a 1 TB drive and if so is there a particular brand or model number that I must buy? Does the IRD recognize any HD? Also when I replace it is there anything special I have to do to make it work? It appears to be a standard computer SATA drive.
Any help appreciated.

But he can use a 1TB external drive on the 622, and he mighteven get a 722 (500GB internal drive) instead of a refurb 622.
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!

Bell uses a 1 TB drive - Seagate ST31000424CS - in their new 9400 (no Dish equivalent). It was suggested on another forum to try this drive in the 9242 (which is a 622).
I would try it if I could find one at a reasonable price.

I would check the model twice and triple times: Bell and dish running different FW.

True, but every drive I have swapped from a 622 or 722 works in a Bell 9242 and vice versa. You can even play the Dish/Bell recordings in the other providers box.

It was posted already 1 TB [approved] in 622 doesn't work; maximum size is 500 GB for 622,722,722k.
1 TB is OK for 922 and perhaps for 813/913 models
