The USB Record/PVR function is only available in Freeview/Saorview mode and only when used in
conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB hard drive. The benefits of this are as follows:
Pause live TV and then playback, rewind and fast forward (up to live TV).
One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme.
Easy recording from the 7 Day TV Guide.
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high-speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads
from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable).
You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection
of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the Helpline/website.
