Purchased a 2tb essential to act as external PVR drive fitted to a dedicated HDD usb 2.0 port on a brand new samsung D5520 series led tv . Samsung TV’s run Linux kernel and uses an XFS partition to store the recordings.
The difficulty for me is that when WD drive goes into standby the TV HDD usb port is unable to wake it up when the TV comes out of standby mode itself to prepare for timed recordings. The drive works fine (recording playback editing etc) if I am around to kick it into life by flicking the power supply to the drive but this is a little impractical.
Is there another solution other than to bin the enclosure and put the drive itself into an enclosure that responds to wake on usb?
seems a shame
cheers for any thoughts
