I have a 42PFL6007H/12 and I wanted to ask you what are the minimum HD requirements in order to register and to download movies with smart TV.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

you know, that there exist a manual with the answers? You can download it on the support website of your TV. You can also open the HELP inside your TV menu!

What you need

If you connect a USB Hard Drive, you can pause or record a TV broadcast. The TV broadcast needs to be a digital broadcast (DVB broadcast or similar). Also, you can connect a USB Hard Drive to watch movies from an online video store (Video On Demand).

To watch rental videos
If you are connected with the Internet, you can rent a movie from an online video store. Open Smart TV and start a rentalvideo App from the App gallery. To download a rental video, you can connect a 8GB USB flash drive but alternatively, you can use a USB Hard Drive. When installing the USB Hard Drive, you can select if you also want to use the USB Hard Drive for rental videos. Even when the rental video store uses video streaming, you might need the USB Hard Drive to store some video buffer.

To pause
To pause a broadcast, you need a USB 2.0 compatible Hard Drive with a minimum of 32GB Hard Drive space and a minimum writing speed of 30MB/s.

To record
To pause and record broadcasts, you need a Hard Drive with a minimum of 250GB Hard Drive space.

Hi thanks for your answer!
If I weel understand, what I need in order to use all the TV possibilities is a 250GB Hard Disk.
I read somewhere that it has to have an external suorce of power.
Is it right or can I also use a Hard Disk powered by the USB itself?

Thanks a lot

Hi Donalor.

We would advise you to use a Hard Disk with its own power adaptor.

Best regards,
