DISH Hard Drive Upgrade FAQ

* How many receivers can the external hard drive be connected to?

As long as the external hard drive authorization is on the account, the external hard drive can be transferred an unlimited amount of times between the receivers that are active on the account.

* How many times can a recording be transferred between the receiver and the external hard drive?

If the recording does not have Copy Protection, there is no limit to the number of times a recording can be transferred between the receiver and the external hard drive. If the recording has Copy Protection, the number of times the recording can be transferred is limited, depending on the rules for the recording.

* Can the recordings on the external hard drive be accessed from TV2?

The external HDD can play back only one event at a time. That event's playback can be controlled from the TV1 or the TV2 location, but not from both at once. That is true in both single and dual modes.

* Can the external hard drive be used between the computer and the receiver?

No. The computer and receiver will prompt to reformat the hard drive when connected from the receiver to a computer and from a computer to the receiver. Dedicate an external hard drive specifically to the receiver as all data will be lost if reformatted.

* Can recordings be played back directly from the external hard drive?

Yes. In the Manage Device menu, select Play to play recorded events from the external hard drive.

* I already paid the one-time $39.99 Archiving Activation fee to connect an external hard drive to my ViP-series DVR receiver – do I have to pay the DVR EHD one-time fee also?

Yes. These are two different services.

* Can I connect the external hard drive used for my non-DVR to an archiving compatible DVR and vice versa?

No. The external hard drives can be transferred once but not shared between DVR and non-DVR receiver. Moving each way will require re-formatting, and any stored programs will be deleted.

* How many non-DVR receivers can the external hard drive be connected to?

As long as the DVR EHD authorization is on the account, the external hard drive can be connected an unlimited amount of times between compatible non-DVR receivers that are active on the account.

* Can I take the external hard drive used on my ViP211 to a friend’s house and watch content from it through is ViP211?

No. You cannot share external hard drives between accounts. When the drive is connected to the new receiver, the receiver will prompt to re-forma the drive.
