Thanks...btw-I ended up ordering a reconditioned, 1TB My Book Essential from an online retailer for $50 delivered so I'm anxiously awaiting it


 

 

Hard to say...  the recording time is variable due to the kind of content and whether or not you record from OTA or just SAT channels.  I know that I currently don't have mine full and it does have more on it than I originally was able to have on a 722 receiver.  I use it mainly with my 922 now, though so it is harder to compare as the 922 has a larger internal drive.

Any chance to help your brother by Searching and reading ? ;)

No ?

 

Well, the answer - ANY  USB 2.0 compatible enclosure with up to 2 TB ANY SATA drive.

 

I had hoped that by now (with the Hopper at least) that the 2TB limit would have been surpassed - but alas not so.  :scratch:

 

Oh well...  Looks like I'll be ordering another 2TB from Amazon.  :roundandr

Any self-powered drive will work as good or better.

Got a question for y'all for my brother. He currently has a 722k system and is moving and will have a 1 hopper 2 Joey system installed at the new house. He is wanting to know what would be the best external hard drive to use to move the recordings from the 722k to his new hopper system. The 722k and the hopper will not be hooked up at the same time so any advice would be great. What we would really like is a hard drive model that has been proven to work from 722k to hopper.

How do I get an external hard drive?

Paul,

They can be mail ordered from Amazon, Frys, Newegg etc.  Typical price for a 2 TB is around $100 plus tax and shipping.

Steps involved to connect it are.

1.  Plug in power supply to Drive and 120V

2.  Connect USB cable from Drive to your 722

At that point a menu will come up asking if you want to connect the drive.  I can't remember if you have to signup for External Drive on Dish network.  Seems I did have to do that, so you would do that first, then connect the drives.

It is a pretty simple hookup that takes maybe a few minutes if you have a friend locally that can help.

I connected an external hd to my 722k for the first time just a couple weeks ago.  Did not need to contact Dish.  Just connected drive, turned on the receiver and followed the onscreen prompts that came up.  Super easy

So is my external hard drive bad I've tried about all I know disconnect all cable and reconnect re-boots Help lol

I dont see any HD's on monoprice.  And its only for recievers that are NOT dvrs where u need to pay the 'enabling' fee for an external HD.  All DVRs are plug & play w/ Ext. drives.  No call needed.
