Samsung TV and time recording
My aim was to just use one HDD for TV recording and video/music/pictures,I dont have a blu-ray player so cant comment.
I think the usb pen drive is probable not the best option as you will find it extremley hard to find a pen drive to give you a sustained 34mb/sec Write speed if one even exists and why settle for a capacity of 16-32 gb plus the samsung manual states this speed is not the same as a PC reports so to me seems a useless spec. anyway.
I wanted like you to use a old hard disk and pen drive so bite the bullet and buy the hard disk about £60
against what you paid for the TV its nothing.
Why they said portable for as far as I know is that is the only way you will get a low current drive, its minium 5400 speed by the way.
My signal is via aerial/ freeview
There are 2 ways to record TV from EPG, good for when you are not at home or on holiday ,it then displays the name of the program for playback, that may be the reason it will only work from aerial signal so try it on aerial first then experiment
or press the record button which is good when phone rings it will record to the end of the program or you can change the recording time,
Bear in mind you can only watch what you are recording or switch tv to standby and watch it later, which for me is a big dissappointment as initally I thought I could watch 1 channel ard record another.
the spec. for the drive I think I found on the WD site but not easy its in a pdf doc on drive specs.
I hope this helps you
