Folks...I have two HR24s, one owned which is completely stock, and one leased with an external 2TB hard drive. We are leaving DirecTV later this summer. The question is....can I take the external HD on the leased receiver and use it for playback only on the owned receiver? I know I can't use it for recording but couldn't remember if I could do playback only on it and if so, how it needs to be set up.
When I hook it up to the owned receiver, it will NOT be connected to satellite and I intend on disconnecting the receivers from satellite well before the account is closed.
