    Had an eSATA drive added to an hr20 to add 1 terrabyte - has worked flawlessly for over year. Just moved to THR22-100. Can I use my eSATA drive again on the THR22-100 without formatting it first? When I first added to the hr20 it had nothing on it. But now it has the shows to be recorded plus all the other stuff from the hr20. Can I just connect it like I did before and it will write over everything or do I have to wipe it or reformat it?

    Tivo has different partitioning than DTV DVR; so, yes you cannot play your records and the drive will be reformatted. You are SOL. Sorry.

    What you mean ? Your Tivo THR22 turned into regular HR22 after connecting HR20's drive ?!!
