    USB HDD recording/pauzing etc.

    For over a year now I have been trying to hook up a HDD to my 42pfl7606h.
    To save energy I hook up HDD's that get energy through the USB.
    Sadly enough I still havn't got this working.
    The first was a 500Gb disc that asked too much power, according to the manual.
    Now I hooked up an SSD with 128Gb.
    As we all know, SSD is very fast.
    After formatting the disk, the TV says that the writingspeed is TOO LOW....WTF.

    I can't hook up anything faster than a SSD and I use this because of the power problems other disks give.
    Philips, please help me.

    I have the same TV, and I got it working (power only from USB) with this HDD:

    http://www.amazon.de/Intenso-externe...0586141&sr=1-9

    Before, I used another portable HDD, and could not get it to start up reliably on USB power.

    Unfortunately, the fact that it works for me does not guarantee that it works for you as well: operating HDDs on USB2.0 will always work with a very narrow margin, and small variations in production can make the same type of HDD behave differently in different scenarios.

    The critical phase is always the startup: during startup the disk draws a current spike, which the USB port has to supply. Once spinup is over, everything should be stable. A reliable indication of problems is the sound of the HDD repeatedly spinning up and down after startup.

    Dear chisham,
    My HDD will not spin, for it is a SSD.
    Formatting-sequense goes well, but when it tests the writingspeed, it comes out that speed is too low (???).
    Can this be solved with some new software, Philips?

    Hi Sesio,

    sorry, I missed the part where you switched from HDD to SSD. Generally, SSDs need less power than HDDs, so the whole USB current topic is less likely to be the cause of the problem. No idea what might cause the SSD to appear 'slow' to the TV.
