My DVR expander W/ Tivo

Basic question, I have been using this expander with a DirecTV box. If I connect it to my new XL4, will the programs still be there, are they compatible?
Will it harm my new tivo to do this?

I can't answer whether it'll be compatible, though I suspect it will.

As to whether the programs will still be there, no, they will definitely not. When you marry an external drive to the TiVo, it puts a portion of each subsequent recording on the internal drive and a portion on the external, according to everything I've read. So when you divorce it from the old box, all those recordings are lost.
