Need new portable HDD to use with my tv to record tv programs

(1/1)

sneakypete:
Come to think of it,I also need one to back up my computer HDD. Right now I am using a 10+ year old laptop to back up my files,but should probably just go with a portable HDD.

The one I am looking to buy now will be plugged into my Channel Master recorder.

Any recommendations in the 5 TB and under category?

I would recommend Western Digital 'My Passport' for a really good Joe-Homeowner solution...

https://www.amazon.com/Passport-Portable-External-Drive-Black/dp/B07VTW2LPX/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3QUK2NNC2P0F6&dchild=1&keywords=external+hard+drive+4tb&qid=1624282356&s=electronics&sprefix=external+hard+drive%2Celectronics%2C350&sr=1-5

However, any reasonable USB 3 enclosure will do... The important part is the hard drive itself, so a fair recommendation would also be toward the purchase of a Western Digital Black drive in a size that suits you, and any reasonable 5-star enclosure to your liking from Amazon, Ebay, or elsewhere.


And finally: this is a WD_Black External hdd. No frills. Just da sh*t... This is the one I would buy for myself:

Thanks.

I discovered after I made that post my recording problems were related to my 10 year old Channel Master video recorder. I have been using it to record both tv antenna as well as Wi-Fi tv channels.

Thought at first it was the plug in memory HDD that was the problem,but dug up another one I had forgotten about,and have the same problem with that one.

So I ordered this a few minutes ago.

It's not real clear that it will also record the wi-fi signals,but I can't understand why it wouldn't.
