So Whats 16GB USB Drive used for

  • For backing up and easy transport and transfer of information from PCs
  • Record/Pause TV programs on a satellite receiver (Better to use External Hard Drive)
  • Very fast means of programming a box
    • USB programming takes 10 seconds
    • RS232 takes 4 minutes
    • Manual programming takes 30 minutes to 4 hours
  • Unlike with RS232, you do not need a master box
  • Unlike with Manual programming, you do not need a satellite dish
  • How Much Can I Record?

    It really depends on the receiver and whether the broadcast is in standard or high definition

    Roughly speaking, it is a 4:1 ratio depending on whether recording in HD or SD

    A good rule of thumb would be

    • 1GB = 1 Hour of SD (Standard Definition) Recordings
    • 4GB = 1 Hour of HD (High Definition) Recordings

    So What's in the box

    • USB Flash Drive
