Default moving external from one dvr to the other

Is it possible to use an external on one dvr and then move it to another dvr to play in another room? I record most of my stuff in the living room but would like to be able to capture to my computer in another room. I realize you would have to restart the dvr to get it to recognize each time, but since it is originally setup on one dvr would it work on the other?

When you connect the external drive to a different DIRECTV DVR it will reformat it.
