Replacement 722 dvr

Received a new 722 dvr receiver. Will I lose saved movies, shows, etc from old receiver or will exchanging Smartcard allow my shows to be viewed from new receiver?

You would have to transfer to an external hard drive.

Hi paboy486! The recordings are stored on an internal hard drive, not the smart card. Smart cards are specific to the receivers so it is important that you don't switch them out. But you can move your recordings with an External Hard Drive, you can learn more about the requirements for the External Hard Drive here: https://www.mydish.com/external-hard-drive If you have any questions, please feel free to send us a private message!
