I believe the acts of attaching and removing an EHD from any Dish receiver requires a reboot in every case.
I know with my 722k it did.
I haven't attached any of my 722k EHDs to my Hoppers since the drives are so large they do not fill up on me (I delete programs after watching them except in rare occasions).
I Have prime time active on one Hopper and off on the other. The Mrs. has discovered she watches more network TV now because EVERYTHING on all 4 nets is recorded and she can watch it whenever. The only problem is occasionally my Hopper2000 drops CBS and NBC one night - a power cord reboot fixes that). Never set timers for big 4 network shows anymore. PTAT shows can be saved out of PTAT so they are not replaced after 8 days.
After the last software download my Joeys show up on my router as MOCA devices even though they are only connected by coaxial cable.
