    I bit the Hopper bug and have an installation for the Hopper tomorrow. Question.....Will my Hopper read what has been recorded on my 612? I an copying all my recordings from the 612 internal hard drive to my external hard drive.

    I plan on purchasing my Hopper when I get my tax refund back next February.

    It should, but I only have experience with a 622 which it read without any problems.

    There was an old wive's tale at one time warning against moving programs from a conventional ViP series DVR to a Hopper. Is that still the case?

    I am uploading my recorded shows from 612s External hard drive to Hoppers internal hard drive. So far so good. Maybe that idea of this not working is the older hoppers before the sling adapter was added internally. So I am thinking the newer models this will. be ok on. I do. It see a way to play videos directly off the external hard drive.
