  • Another thing is, by using the Live TV pause feature, the data in the USB drive will be formatted
  • If you want to reuse that pen drive for some other feature, it should be reformatted
  • In this reformatting, the USB drive is subjected to a test, whether it is capable enough to support the live recording or not

  • Once the formatting is finished, you can use additional USB drives in other ports
  • You can only use the USB drive to pause the live programs
  • The recorded programs cannot be stored in the drive for any other future use and transferring to another device is also not possible
