Series 3 HDD --> Roamio Basic?

Hi All! I'm patiently awaiting delivery of my Roamio Basic (with lifetime subscription of course). Long time Tivo user and still have an OLED Series 3 and Premiere in the household. I plan on decommissioning the Series 3, which I had upgraded the HDD to 2TB last year. Question is: can I simply take the 2TB drive from my S3 and drop it into my new Roamio? (Or do I have to somehow format that drive first so it's blank?) I know the Roamio upgrade process is supposed to be a lot easier now than it was with all previous models.

Thanks in advance!

You should be able to just drop it in and the Roamio should format the drive automatically for you. However, you will lose all recordings currently on the drive.

Just wanted to confirm for anyone wondering.. It works just fine! And the formatting of the drive was quick! 314 HD hrs!
