Hi Guys,

I am using samsung F5500 TV and just came to know that you can record the tv program directly to the USB driver, However the problem is I am getting my channels though setup box which is connected to TV though HDMI Cable.

In the manual they have mention that how to do when it's connected with ariel, however want to know if it is possible in my case

In this case, I'd try it next.

Over here it's not a feature for whatever reasons but give it a try.

May need an HDD (min 5400)

I'd also like to be able to do this and have the same set-up (UK - Virgin Media cable via HDMI)

I read somewhere that to record you have to use a min 5400RPM HDD and that it formats the whole thing before you can use it, so you'd have to take a punt on buying one on the hope that it works...

Post back with your results Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
