The HR44 already has a 1 TB drive.  If you put an external drive on your HR34, you will not be able to watch anything recorded on the external drive mounted on another DirecTV DVR.  The data on the drives is encoded to the receiver that created it. 


HR10-250   550G WD  6.4a
HR21-700   750G WD x087f AM21
HR21-700 2000G WD x087f AM21
HR44-500 2000G WD x08c2
DirecTV since 1997

an external drive REPLACES the internal, does not ADD to it.  since the Genie comes with 1TB already, there is nothing to be gained

I understood that.I was going to download my shows on the external hard drive than hook it up to the hr44 when I got it.but since I can't do it, I will not worry about it. I will just watch my shows before switching to the hr44. Thanks for all the answers.

OK, that makes sense.
