We have the 622 and have had it since it first came out. We have a LOT of content on there that we have stored sowe can watch it in the future as well as a 750mb external drive filled with content as well. My wife is not willing to give up the content (4+ years as of yet unwatched Grey's anatomy?) so we have yet to upgrade to the Hopper. I asked Customer service and they said there was no way to transfer this over to the Hopper. They won't let me keep the 622 either. Are there any options that the CSR's are not able to tell me about? Will not be able to have an external drive hooked to the Hopper? Is there a way to transfer from the external drive to a computer and then play it later? Any help would be most appreciated, I REALLY want the additional tuners and capabilities of the Hopper!
