Recording device for Homeworx Converter box

Post by Admin_Mediasonic »

We recommend use of USB hard drive formatted in NTFS file format, 2TB Max.

Also make sure the USB drive or enclosure you use. Does not have sleep mode,
because if hard drive is in sleep mode and when schedule recordings kick in, it won't see the hard drive
so then it won't record

Do not use Flash drive to do recording. They are just not suitable.

If you are using 2.5” hard drive, make sure the current required for the hard drive is less than 800ma. Most of today’s drives will drain more than 1A. If the box is overloaded, the box will be damaged easily. To solve the problem, you may connect to a USB hub with wall plug or another USB port via Y cable .
