Steve, shrewsbury i'm from planet earth

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Ease of use,not having to plug it into the mains is very useful, also no coax cable is needed, and was very easy to set up.
Bad points:
The one and only thing that I found to be it's downfall, but not the end of the world was it's inability to allow you to watch another programme while it was recording, although you can watch other recorded programmes, for example if you were watching chanel 6 and you had chanel 8 set for recording it will switch to chanel 8 automatically, which I thought a bit annoying,

Your favourites, ready to watch when you want

Now you can record your favourite TV programmes onto a dedicated external drive with the WD My Passport AV-TV – have them ready to view on your schedule.

You can even use your TV remote to pause, rewind and fast forward live TV, making the device a fully flexible storage solution. Your TV will carry out the recording function, sending the necessary information to the My Passport drive.

Highly compatible

This 1 TB WD My Passport AV-TV hard drive is able to operate with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 interfaces, and is purpose-designed to store multimedia content. This makes it ideal for use with most recordable TVs and other electronic devices, and it doesn’t need multiple cables.

Thanks to the inclusion of USB 3.0 technology, you can record and play back at the same time if you’ve got a dual-tuner TV. The hyper-fast connection allows for multiple HD streams to be sent, so you can record a can’t-miss show while watching a live broadcast – perfect for those who love sports and entertainment equally.

First-class recording product

Thanks to its internal AV-grade drive, the My Passport AV-TV gives you high-quality recording and incredibly clear playback, making it the ideal way to get the most out of your recordable TV.

Its robust design helps it cope with the demanding requirements of always-on video streaming applications, so you can rely on it 24/7.

So easy to install

Small and slim in design, the WD My Passport AV-TV will neatly fit into your entertainment centre – a bracket mounting kit has been included so that you can directly affix the hard drive to the back of the TV.

Maintain your set’s smooth appearance while benefitting from the advanced recording capabilities of this unique TV hard drive.

The WD My Passport AV-TV is an innovative, compact and practical alternative to conventional video and DVD recorders.
