external USB HDD recording?


Active Member
can you record direct to the external usb hdd from the TV receiver, or can you only copy from the internal HDD to the ext.HDD?

MANY THANKS for help!

Not sure about the 720 but the BWT735 does not allow this, only allows you to copy from HDD to USB HDD.

And the connected HDD has to be reformatted by the 735 before you can put anything on to it and only the 735 can get it back off again - so pretty useless really.
