I have been having some problems with my 722k and was browsing the forums.  I came acros this one about external drives:


And saw the poster mention something to the effect of "he spent $39 for an external drive and it did not work".


At first I thought he bought an external drive for $39, but then after reading a little more it kind of looked like he paid Dish $39 for some type of fee to use his own external drive.  That post is locked so I could not ask this question there...


Does Dish actually charge you a fee to use your own external hard drive?  If so, talk about nickel and diming a person!

In the past there was a $40 fee. That is no longer a fee if you have a DVR model receiver. There is still a $40 fee if you want to turn a 211 non DVR into a DVR.

They locked it because someone bumped a thread from 2007 which could confuse people living in 2013. And apparently they were right! ;)
