USB recording using DVB-EPG or timer
"Today, in the 2011 "Smart TV:s", you need the IP-EPG for the simple task of schedule a recording. For this you need a router and in some cases a USB-hub in addition to a HDD, and you also need to install all these items. This seems unnecesserily complicated and expensive, when the DVB-EPG seems to be working fine for a lot of people using digital boxes etc. It ́s also noted that even IP-EPG is not always reliable, or even supported in some of the countries where DVB-EPG is working fine. Recording set by timer would of course not need any EPG at all...
For the 2011 "Smart TV:s" to become really smart, i vote for a firmware upgrade with added option to use DVB-EPG to schedule a recording, and also a timer function to be implemented. This would make it much simpler to use the function, and in my honest opinion: it ́s the only sensible thing to do..."
