I know that I can hook up an external hard drive through USB. I was wondering if I could link 2 of them together with a USB cable so it wouldn't matter which receiver I used to record. Right now I have a 4x4 matrix that I switch depending on what reciever I want to watch ( basement or main floor) not a huge deal but would make things simpler. I was just going to try it but I figured I might wreck something.
All equipment is centrally located.
I also think that Dish Network has the same receivers. Not sure on model number though.
