    What TV? With a the USB2 TV Tuner you could record from your computer. There are some high end HDTV's that have usb connections for viewing j and mpeg's. If you don't have this type of TV and happen to have an Xbox, PS3 or Wii they all have UPnP to allow media to be extended to the Xbox from your computer (may be a cheap alternative for you). Hope this helps, Bill

Hitachi 50hyt62u H can I add a removable drive as I have a slot in Back for one, and if so where do I get one

You should be able to buy an external USB drive (or thumb drive) at any electronics store.
You can connect a USB hard disk drive or USB
memory stick to your TV by using the USB inputs of
the TV. This feature allows you to play files stored in
a USB drive. 2.5" and 3.5" inch (hdd with external
power supply) external hard disk drives are supported.
IMPORTANT! You should back up your files before
making any connections to the TV set in order to
avoid any possible data loss. Manufacturer will not
be responsible for any file damage or data loss. It is
possible that certain types of USB devices (e.g. MP3
Players) or USB hard disk drives/memory sticks may
not be compatible with this TV.
Quickly plugging and unplugging USB devices, is a
very hazardous operation. Do not repeatedly quickly
plug and unplug the drive. This may cause physical
damage to the USB player and USB device itself. Do
not pull out USB module while playing a file.
Media Browser Menu
You can play photo, music, and movie files stored
on a USB disk by connecting it to your TV and using
the Media Browser screen. To do this, perform the
following: Connect a USB disk to one of the USB
inputs located on the side of the TV.
You can connect two USB devices to your TV. If both
USB devices include music, picture or video files, USB
selection OSD will be displayed on the screen. The
first USB device connected to the TV will be named
as USB Drive1. Select a device by using up or down arrows
and press OK

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box

First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    Can a Panasonic CX400 tv have a 1TB portable hard drive plugged into it?

    The TV reads the hard drive. It does not record to it. You need a DVR for that.

    My tv does not support san disk 16gb cruzar blade

    The device may be of "too low of quality"-- meaning..the device may be too "SLOW" to record the stuff you want to record...

    Lower (cheaper) storage, is often not as "FAST" to record, as higher quality device... sadly.. the simple solution..return the device, and try another.

    Nothing wrong with your TV....

    The problem maybe is that your T.V. does not recognizes large space of hard drive. You can try to use a smaller storage like USB Flash disk or Memory Card.

    Hi my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see you want to get your recordings offyour DVR receiver to a hard drive through your USB slot. Depending on thereceiver and external hard drive or device you have and you will need to makesure it meets all the requirements, if you are using the 522 or 625 DVRreceivers you can only use the Pocket DISH portable media players. Those modelsthat are compatible are; AV402E, AV500E and AV700E, if you have any questionsplease e-mail me at

    Local disk error WD My Passport 250GB

    Do you connect & disconnect the drive according to WD's recommendations here? Try another cable. (If yours was wearing out, that might explain why it only connected some times.) Try another usb port. Check the power supply (another receptacle) Unplug other usb devices from the system.
    See this article. Good luck!

    My seagate 250 GB hard disk is not being detected, no lights, pls help me!!

    First, try plugging it in to another usb slot.

    If it still does not work, plug in another device to the same usb slot. If it does not work also, there is a problem with your usb slot, and you can buy an extra usb slot.

    or, if the other device works, try unplugging and taking out all the power supply for your desktop/laptop. Then, after 20 minutes, plug them back in and then plug in your hard drive, then turn on your computer.

    Hope this helps, leave a comment on what happened ^_^
