I would like to buy an external hard drive to record tv. I have a clash of programs I would love to watch on Sunday; that are unlikely to be repeated (and aren’t on Freeview catch up).  

The LG site sets out the specifications for the device. 

I already have a hard drive for my Mac. I assume because its for a Mac the tv gives no option to format it. 

What would you recommend I buy; and how much should I expect to spend (on no frills budget)? 

Also can anyone explain to why LG specify ‘maximum’ storage criteria; as opposed to ‘minimum’. 

Hopefully other non tech savvy folk will benefit from this thread. 

Many thanks as always for your always brilliant advice. 

Best wishes.
