Sony USB HDD Recording

Why has Sony disabled USB HDD Recording on Android TVs in Australia? Is this just a software thing? Is it likely to reintroduce?

Its more likely to be a licensing issue. My first flat screen tv, an LG could theoretically record, but was disabled in the uk as LG couldn't agree terms with the freeview body. There were lots of people doing work arounds by telling the tv in its firmware that it was somewhere else in the world to enable recording, but it then didn't really work with uk programs

Do you have Youview enabled (or some equivalent)? On my set in the UK, with Youview enabled recording is disabled. However if you disable Youview and just use 'normal' freeview then you can record.
