No the formats are different. Only transfer possible at the moment is between HDDs from the same model decoders under special conditions.
Spare decoders: SD PVR(3) PSU's, DSD 660, 1110, 1131, Explora 1.
Spare switches and LNBs: 1 x 5-1(repaired); 1 x 5-2.Numerous so called faulty LNBs that were easily repaired.
2 unmentionable FTA decoders
1.2m antenna, 8-way universal LNB, 2 x (2x6) MS, FSM permanently connected.

Note for any other readers - by same models it's meant that they must both be of the Explora models group.

Explora model 1 content can be transferred to another Explora 1 or an Explora 2A, and from a 2A to another 2A, but a 2A can't be transferred to a model 1.
No other make of decoder can have content transferred.
