I've just brought a new TV and want to try out the recording to hard drive.
Samsung seem to recommend a External Hard Drives with a power supply for there TVs so I want to buy one of those.


So anyone got an old unit hanging around I can buy 500G - 1TB will be fine. USB2 or USB3.
If so what do you want for (include postage to Dunedin please).

@k1w1k1d - Sounds to easy :)


 Thanks - how long does 320GB last recording-wise?
