Cammy, that’s interesting.

How big a memory and are you suggesting the Q9 formats the drive?

how do you target the USB drive for recording.

i have two sat boxes. Humax with a hard drive and a Strong without a hard disc.

thanks

Hello Gfplux,

 

I am using two 256gb drives but these days, most systems should accept an external Hard Drive - so there shouldn't be a limit to what you can hook up.

 

Once the my USB's are plugged in - you can choose which to record to and have options for scheduled and repeat recordings.

Thank you Cammy. Food for thought. Are they ready to use when you buy them?

Depends on the USB drive - if its compatible then you can use out of the box.
Or if its an old drive, then a format will delete the drive and prepare it for use to record onto.
Maybe try it first with a spare usb drive before going out and purchasing a new one.

Model QE65Q9FNATXXU - 6 months old in UK

 

As someone else also noted much earlier, it was only in the first two weeks that we had any success with recording programmes which had been scheduled  from the EPG.

 

Manual recording has always worked fine to two different hard drives with independent power supplies, and to a 32GB USB memory stick, and with both the Terrestrial and the Satellite tuners, but scheduled programmes using the EPG  have since always fail to record.

 

Before, for over 4 years, and in spite of much bother over it, we had the same trouble with the F8000 but Samsung was never able to fix the issue, or even to recognise that there was a problem. This time on a trial phone call to Samsung CS there was even some suggestion that it was the responsibility of the (non-'Freesat') EPG provider, but I think that is also associated with Samsung...

 

With the same Dish and Aerial our Sat and Terrestrial PVRs record flawlessly so clearly there is a fault with the QE9, but I really don't want to go through all that again and Samsung appears so far to have got away with it yet again.

@paul1277that's very interesting to hear that Samsung has acknowledged a problem with recording.

 

I have looked for such a post but not found it yet - would you kindly provide a link?

It was one of the moderators here @AntS who posted the information.

Re. the solution to scheduled programme recordings which was posted "...I re-tuned the TV manually – not automatically (under broadcasting , then expert settings). There are 7 or 8 blocks of channels and you “accept” each block that is shown in turn..."

 

Unfortunately this setting is greyed-out on our QE65Q9FN, but apparently Samsung has acknowledged the fault affecting 'some customers' and aims to do something about it
