    Had an eSATA drive added to an hr20 to add 1 terrabyte - has worked flawlessly for over year. Just moved to THR22-100. Can I use my eSATA drive again on the THR22-100 without formatting it first? When I first added to the hr20 it had nothing on it. But now it has the shows to be recorded plus all the other stuff from the hr20. Can I just connect it like I did before and it will write over everything or do I have to wipe it or reformat it?

    You should not have to do anything - it will get reformatted by the box. You cannot preserve the recordings.
