The recordings are in a proprietary and protected format. The industry mandated this to tie the play back to just this set.
Nothing's busted here but for some reason folk are not getting the answers.
I have purchased a 500GB external hard drive and connected it to the HDD USB port on the side of the TV.
When I press record on the live TV input I was asked to format the HDD, I did so and am able to record from the TV (antenna) input, pause etc. The data is stored to the HDD.
What I want to be able to do is plug the HDD into my laptop and copy video clips to it to watch on the TV. I have windows 7 home edition. When I plug in the HDD to the USB port on laptop I get the connection sound but it does not display in windows explorer.
If I go through device manager - storage, the HDD is there but has no letter assigned. I deleted it and reinitialised it in ExFat format (tried all formats). Copied the video clip to it and plugged it back into TV, nothing! Try to pause live TV get the message to format it again.
How can I achieve my goal, any help would be greatly appreciated.
