Can you hang an external Hard Drive on the Hopper 3 ?

I can do this with my antiquated VIP722K.

Thanks,

You can use the one you have now on the 722 with any Hopper, I still use mine.

I also use my old hard drive from my 722 with my hopper 3.
No need to format

Good, now to find out how to get one without a second mortgage.

You were lucky, in my case, as a customer of 11 years, I get the privilege of paying for my Hopper.

I didn't pay extra for hopper 3. My 2 year agreement was over. I called, negotiated for the same package, and got Hopper 3 and 3 new Joeys. The installer came, replaced the old ones, and it cost me nothing. Obviously, I agreed for another 2 years.

Interesting, I am not on any agreement schedule, I am a ..."tenant at will"... so to speak.

Maybe I talked to the wrong people. I'll try again.

Thanks for the tip.

Did the 4tb Drive work - according to dish - it only works up to 2TB!    Really hard to even find a 2TB hard drive these days!

3TB(with its own power option) does work but 4TB or greater size doesn't.
