An External Hard Drive (EHD) allows you to expand the disk storage of a DVR (Hopper, 922, 722k, 722, 622, 612), or enable the DVR feature on some receiver models (211k, 211, 411). The EHD must have its own power supply, support USB 2.0, and have only a single hard disk drive (flash memory is not compatible).
Plug the EHD into the wall outlet, use the USB cable to connect it to the receiver.
When you plug the EHD into the receiver’s USB port, you will be prompted with a “Warning” message. In the top right hand corner should be the number 865. This message is just letting you know that the receiver has detected your EHD and is ready to format and install the software needed to use it with your receiver. Select “yes” to begin the process. A second message, 867, will appear, letting you know the receiver will format the hard drive and reset the receiver, select “yes” again.
An “attention” message numbered 869 or 873 will appear while the receiver is working, please do not restart, turn off or disturb the receiver or EHD while it is on the screen.
Once the process is completed, your receiver will automatically reset. When it turns back on, your EHD will be ready for use!
