Can I or Can't I?


Standard Member
Can I use a standard external hard drive on a Humax Freesat box with no HDD installed? Is it plug and go? Will I have use of pause and record?
Thank you so much, can't find answer anywhere.....


In memoriam
Presuming you mean the Foxsat-Hd the answer is you can't record or do any of the fancy tricks like live pause or record. For this you need the twin tuner pvr the Foxsat-hdr. There are other freesat boxes that are pvr ready and allow recording to an external connected drive
