QLED TV's and recording to HDD

First Poster

Hi,

 

QE49Q7FAMT tv - Can anyone tell me if they have successfully recorded a freeview program to a USB attached HDD while watching Netflix or YouTube? Recording works ok if watching another freeview channel.

Or is it even possible?

 

Thanks

Yes,  as long as the scheduled recording works,  which on the ks and q series is a known fault.

Thanks Paul,

My scheduled recording works ok unless I am watching Netflix or YouTube. In that case the recording does not even start till I terminate Netflix etc. Love the TV apart from this issue.

This is the same on my MU7000 too, if i use any app it will not record to the HDD I use for scheduled recordings.

Edit: p.s. had a ks that didn't record while using app as well

Thanks for info but this is getting more disappointing - looks like it may never work..... unless someone out there can tell me differently.

Get around is to pause Netflix when scheduled recording due to start, look at a freeview channel for a couple of minutes till recording starts then resume watching Netflix. Recording continues normally.

Not a pretty workaround but the best I can come up with.

Hi

 

Just a sign of Samsungs poor software and lack of testing.  The hardware is obviously capable of doing it, but the software is buggy.

 

The chances of Samsung fixing it is next to 0, and they wonder why their sales of TVs are dropping.
