Been told the receiver does not support NTFS formatted Hard-Drives, is this true? What's the filesize for a 1 hr HD recording? What format are recording in?

Its Fat 32 but it should still save a file over 4gb. Im sure its only limited to data transfer via usb.

So you can have file sizes greater of 4gb on a fat 32 HDD.

Yes, HDD must be formatted in FAT32.

The recorded files are trp files.

The recordings are split into max 4GB files on the HDD but on the Spiderbox they are shown as one single recording.

Thanks for the replies. One last thing. Are the Hi-Def recordings the same quality as the broadcast e.g. 720p/720i? Sorry for all the questions but my main use will be for Hi-Def PVR and I want to edit files on my PC. I already have a motorised system and DVR so don't want to buy something that does the same job.
