Can I record straight from TV on a USB 3.0 instead of USB 2.0
spanna2620 14 weeks ago
I sometimes record a TV program using a USB 2.0 in spite of the obvious drawbacks, such as a 4GB USB will not fit much over an hour of Standard Definition, and Full HD is just not worth it unless you have a proper Hard Drive recorder, as a movie wouldn't fit on a 16GB USB 2.0 if is inFull HD.
Anyway, I just saw a USB 3.0 in a 64 GB size, which is way bigger than any I have seen in USB 2.0. I thought I had better check if it will work before I buy one as I have only ever used different sizes in the 2.0.
I know I was told when I had only recently purchased this TV, which was pretty cheap so I grabbed for the bedroom, that I could not, for example, use an external Hard Drive via the USB ports as the TV's computer would not be equipped to format something as large as that.
So...should I be able to format a USB 3.0 or might the TV only format USB 2.0? And if it can, will a 64 GB be too big??
Also, out of interest, will a USB 3.0 be exactly the same as the USB 2.0, in relation to how many minutes of recorded TV will fit on every 4 GB of either USB approximately?
These are simple questions for most of you, no doubt, but I am still a learner & would really appreciate anyones input if they can assist me. At $39.99 AUD the USB 3.0 in 64 GB size sounds like great value.
I hope I will get a response from one of you awesome people who enjoys sharing their info with people like myself who still have so much to learn, but thanks to sites like this, I will get there alot sooner than would otherwise be possible.
