External recording compatibility

I currently have a VIP622 DVR with a lot of recordings.  I have a new Hopper with Sling arriving in a few days to replace it.  If I transfer all recordings to external HD connected to the 622, will I bee able to xfer them back to the new H/sling when it gets here?  In other words, are the formats compatible on the HD?

Yes, but wait three days before trying to transfer them back to the HWS.

And the reason for waiting 3 days is?   Can I assume firmware updates may take that long or is there some other reason?
