    Recording on one partitions instead of whole HDD

    Hi,

    how can I convince my Philips TV 8008 to record on one of two partitions on my HDD ?? TV don't want to record on the first part, but want to format the whole HDD. Thanks for many clever answers :-)

    Hi Vinc,

    Using a partitioned HDD for recording is not advised.

    The TV will most likely react as if there is no partition and format the entire disk, but recording will most likely happen on whichever partition has the most space left. But this can't be guaranteed either.

    So in short: No, not really unfortunately.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    See post #77:
    http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...eriences/page6

    I have not tried it, so I can not confirm it works.
    As Ina wrote, it is not advised, but if you feel confident, you can give it a try:

    1) Start with the drive having one partition only
    2) Let the TV format the drive (note ALL data on the drive is erased!)
    3) With suitable PC-software resize the TV partition and create additional NTFS partition(s)

    According to the post #77, now the TV should be able to record on the TV-partition, but it can not acces the NTFS partitions. The PC can work with the NTFS partitions, but it can not playback the recordings made on the TV (special encryption for copyright protection).
    WARNING: Be careful not to edit anything on the TV partition when connected to the PC, as this may result in your TV recordings becoming permanently unaccesible.

    If you decide to give it a try, let us know of the results.
