I searched and did not find the answer..
Just a guess.. 1 Terabyte might work..maybe even larger.. do you have any laying around to check that out?

Is there not an option in the menu choices. of the receiver. to Format HDD??

Menu Choices.. are the same as a Jynxbox HD receiver

Those are good questions & like txs I do not know the answers.
You will have to do some experimenting. Used to be any usb stick or hdd needed to be formatted FAT but for some reason I'm thinking some have moved to NTFS. If it were me I'd format a usb stick no bigger then 4gb to FAT & try it then reformat it to NTSC & see how it works. Choose the one that works best.
