I have many recordings saved from a vip612 to an external hard drive.

My first question is, will I be able to play back these videos on a Hopper-Duo without transferring them to the hopper's internal storage? Direct Ext-HDD playback.
Second question is, if I save recordings to an external hard-drive using a Hopper-Duo, will I be able to play them back on a vip612 without transferring them to the internal drive, all within the same account of course.

I found some information on the dish website that external hard-drive recordings are possible between like-receivers as long as they are on the same account, however, I prefer to hear from someone that has actually been able to do this without issue to or from vip612/hopper-duo playback compatibility without having to transfer them first.

612 should play back on a Hopper it is basically the same as a 622 or 722. A612 can't be on a Hopper account so question 2 should be NO.

Which probably isn’t far off.
