Memory Stick USB Records TV

The August DVB400 box for TV recording can pause and rewind live Freeview television using its Timeshift function. To conduct recording and Timeshifting, a USB memory stick is required, a 32GB Memory Stick is included with this product that enables you to start scheduling recordings right away.

Digital TV recorders need storage space to record TV, and so by using USB removable storage you can record without ever needing to delete any! Simply insert a new USB and create a digital library of recorded TV.

With a USB plugged in, you can Pause and Rewind live TV thanks to the inbuilt Timeshift technology, or use the PVR system for recording programmes live or scheduled.

The stick is already formatted to the NTFS format, allowing your recordings to go uninterrupted. If you would like multiple USB drives for this purpose you will need to ensure they are NTFS formatted.

Multimedia Player Freeview Box

A built-in Multimedia player allows you to watch movies, view photos and listen to music from a USB Memory Stick for rewatching, or for giving a child a limited selection of tailored shows and movies in the car or bedroom.

You can watch these multimedia files regardless of TV reception to ensure you always have a backup of recordings and videos to watch.
