Hello,

I have 1TB on my hard disk.
I'd like to have around a third for Philips TV recording and the rest for my own usage.

I tried to split the disk with different configurations : ext2 or 3 for the first partition and ext2/3/NTFS/FAT32/unallocated for the second one.
Each time, TV formats the whole disk.

Is there a way to save my second partition?

Regards,

Marc

Hi Marc

I can confirm that what the TV does with formating the Hard disk is normal behavior, an you cannot have partitions.

Hi Benedickte,

What a pity that Philips didn't choose to keep other partitions.
Maybe because of security constraints.

Thanks Benedickte
