I'm having problems with recorded programs as the TV doesn't seem to power the hard drive when in standby. Rather than spend money on another powered hard drive, will TV be ok connecting to a powered hub with the USB hard drive attached to the hub, or won't this work?
But I would assume that in standby it's still providing power to the USB device, which I don't think is the case. It only records if the TV is on and I'm watching something, otherewise (for example overnight), it doesn't I've disabled all sleep / autotune settings as described in other posts, but no luck. I don't particularly want to buy a second, power hard drive, whereas a powered USB hub is about £20. I was just curious about whether the TV would recognise a hard drive if connected via a hub, rather than directly.
