Hello, Sea Beagle. You are able to transfer recordings between Hoppers, however it will not transfer over folders. You will need to have an ethernet cable connected between the two Hoppers for this process. You can view the steps for this transfer process here. The amount of time it takes to transfer an event may vary depending on the Hopper model and how full the hard drive is.

Much appreciated. Would transferring recordings to my external hard drive keep the recordings in their original folders?

I don't see the process in here but pair the old remote to the new Hopper, then with the old remote, on the Diagnostics screen, go to Tool\Restore Settings\To Receiver

I have both remote controllers paired already.

Do both hoppers need to be on or can I just have the Hopper 3 on?

Just the new one. Once you back everything up to the old Remote or, you can try it in reverse. Pair the new remote to the old hopper, then backup settings to it, then try to restore them to the new hopper with the new remote

Hopper to Hopper works, sometimes
EHD works every time
Great clarification about H3 to H3 being a gamble. I was thinking when the time came, I would try an H3 to H3, but no thanks, now. I shall stick to EHD. Again, thanks for the warning

This is verrrry cool. I looked at my timer option on my new Hopper 3. Without doing any restoring all the timers showed up.
