Regarding recordings, I've checked the file has .ts extension.
Is there any option to record in any other option or to export file to another video format?
Thx in advance

Hello, my TIVIMATE does not record past 1 min no matter how I set the program to record. It will record the whole show if I stay on the channel that I am recording, Once I leave that channel or turn off my tv it will not record the program past 1 min. anyone else having this issue? or how to correct it?.

Hi there @kherio., did you ever find out if the .ts recording format can be changed or converted to another format? (e.g. mp4. mkv, avi etc)

yes ok, thanks.
Now all I need to do is to find a way for my computer to read the external USB drive whic is connected attached to my Android TV box -

I have the recordings and I can play them on the TV Box but can't connect the USB drive to my computer to read them due to the USB drive's format. (My compuer doesnt read it)

I originally formatted the external 2TB USB drive as NTFS file system (using my computer) before I connected the external drive to the TV box.

When that dive was connected to the The Android TV Box for the 1st time, the TV Box formatted the 2 TB usb drive again. (the system stated it was required) .. The file system used by the Android Mi TV-Box is not FAT32, it's not FAT1 and it's not NTFS.
ergo ..
When I remove the drive from the TV box and connect it to the computer, the computer can't read it. (The disk is unreadable)

I can play the recorded files if the drive is connected to the TV box .. but .. the computer cant read the drive at all.

I think teh TV-Box needs the external HDD to be formatted with the main partition as a "MAster Boot Record" partition. I wil try that and see how we go. thx.
