    I am trying to archive about 1TB from my FVP-4000T to disk but it is very slow. I am following How to archive recordings to USB HDD in the FAQ.

    I have to copy to a USB memory stick as it doesn't recognise a 1TB SATA disk plugged into the USB socket via a SATA to USB Adapter.

    Is there a faster way?

    Can I take the disk out of the FVP-4000T and copy directly from it?

    Thanks

    What style of partition table does the 1TB drive use (MBR or GPT)?

    If you have a Windows 8 or later PC you can use the method described in this FAQ https://myhumax.org/forum/topic/file-transfer NB It starts off talking about Samba but the Network Server is a DLNA server. It takes a bit of practice to get it right but is much, much quicker than copying via USB. If you don't have a suitable PC then you can use a similar method using VLC to capture the DLNA stream to a file.

    Can I take the disk out of the FVP-4000T and copy directly from it?

    Yes BUT this won't remove the encryption applied to all recordings.

    Are you aware that, once you have made your selection and started the transfer, you can press X and just go back to watching TV, there is no need to watch the spinning triangle for ages and ages as the process will continue in the background?

    Thanks - the USB disk is GPT - I used AOEMI Partition Assistant to find out. Should I change it to MBR which AOEMI can do.

    Thanks - I didn't realise I could go back to TV etc - my eyes are still rotating

    Up to you; MBR will work with the Humax, GPT will not (so far as I am aware).

    I can now confirm that - the Humax sees the 1TB disk now I have changed it from GPT to MBR.
