OK so I posted here a few days ago about transfering recordings from my old Hopper to an External HD so I could move them to my new Hopper w/ Sling.

 

Well, everything copied to the Hard Drive...took forever but it worked.

Now when I try to copy things back to my new Hopper I get Error 855...the darn thing goes down to 2s left and then it gives me that error and nothing copies. Tried individual episodes or entire show folders and got the same darn thing.

 

Any ideas?

The current sw for the original Hopper and HWS has known issues with EHD transfers. The general recommendation is to view your programs form the EHD. This has always been the suggestion because of significant issues early on with Hopper's EHD support.

If you are trying to transfer them all at once, try transferring just a few at a time and see if it makes any difference.

Tried that...didn't work either.

Just leave them on the EHD for now. You can watch them from there.
