Hi, which of your tvs would support a seagate external hard drive that holds 5tbs? I have a samsung now but it only supports a harddrive with 2 tbs. when I tried a 5 tb hard drive, it did not work. I want to know before I buy. thanks

Did you format the HDD to the TV. NoVrmally a HDD that will work on a PC won't be recognized by the TV

The Sony 850F sereis TV's appear to support external HDD. However, they don't show that on the BB web site. On the Sony web site they indicate it is so but do not specify an HDD size.

hi, thanks for reply. no, i called samsung and they said that particular tv did not support a 5tb hard drive. It does work fine with a 2 tb. I didnt format it, I just plugged it in and tv read it

Like my Tivo. Supports 1 TB just fine but would not support 2 TB. Out of curosity what do you do with the external HDD?
I am looking to get a new 950F from Sony and would be interested in that.

I was wondering if you could record shows you acquired from streaming TV. Kind of like a DVR

Thanks I will certainly look into it when I get my new TV. I see Sony does sell a media center device that appears to perform similar but it is only 1 TB
