Thanks for taking the time to reply. You are right it does sound like a partition thing even though there are no partitions on the drive and in fact I have it working now so you are right. Anyway I started from scratch , erased the disk. Reformatted to MS DOS Fat32. popped it into my TV it asked to format again (a good thing as it didn't ask that previous times after formatting on the mac) to which I said yes and now it works only 1 drive showing. I do not understand why it works now and didn't before as I have tried formatting drives before, I think the mac may make some small partition that the TV sees but the mac does not.

I hope someone can help me with this problem. When I plug in a hard drive and I have tried multiple drives some formatted before connecting and some I've tried formatting with the TV when prompted to the first time you plug it in and usb sticks whether I use the dedicated 5amp usb for hard drives or any of the other usb's I get the same problem. In the source menu shows 2 x drives (formatted and not partitioned). The first drive is given a no lets say 178 and then the 2nd drive the same number but with a 2 in brackets so shows 178(2). The first one is unusable as it shows barely any memory and 2nd one has all the memory. I can watch media off the drive as long as I select the 2nd one as thats where the media is, so what's the problem you say? The problem comes when I try to record or use timeshift the TV automatically selects the first drive and then says I have no memory, it will record a few mins then memory runs out. So why is the TV showing 2 x drives as sources when only 1? and then why does it automatically select the one that does not work?
