To use the PVR function you must first connect either a USB stick (of up to 32GB) or an externally powered hard drive (of up to 2TB) to the USB port of the TV and follow the steps below to format it.
Please note that we recommend the use of an externally-powered 2TB or less USB 2.0 storage device.
We also recommend the use of Seagate or LaCie branded drives, as there can be incompatibility issues when using a WD (Western Digital) drive.
