Yes, that should work per the following facts thread, however, the 9242 needs to be on the same account. Is the new 9242 on your account?2. My 2TB EHD works on my old 9242, but the new 9242 wants to format it stating "it was from another receiver". I thought EHDs could be transferred between same type receivers...something has changed at Bell???

From post 5 of the same thread:
Q: Can I copy Recordings from one hard drive to another?
Files can be copied from one BellTV formatted hard drive to another BellTV formatted hard drive using Linux. That is useful if the BellTV hard drive becomes unusable due to first partition corruption or if the drive is upgraded. The copied files can only be watched using the same model BellTV PVR (on the same account)
