Smart TV: What is Timeshift on my TV?

Last Update date : 2017.11.14

Timeshift is a function on your television to record contents to your storage device for later viewing. This function is only available when a storage device (USB, Hard disks...) is connected to your television.

 

Following is how to enable/disable timeshift:

1.   While watching a broadcast programme, select the right arrow button on your remote to start the Timeshift function.

 

2.   If you want to stop the Timeshift function, select the square button on your remote.

 

 

Following are some precautions before using the recording or the timeshift functions:

 

1.  The Timeshift mode operates for a maximum of 90 minutes.

 

2.  The Timeshift function is not supported for analogue channels.

 

3.   The Timeshift function is disabled for channels locked with Channel Lock.

4.   USB memory sticks are not supported. However, a USB hard drive with a speed of 5400 rpm or above is recommended, therefore RAID type USB hard drives are also not supported.

5.   Recordings are DRM-protected and therefore cannot be played back on a computer or on a different TV. In addition, these files cannot be played back on your TV if its video circuit has been replaced.

6.  The total recording capacity may differ with the amount of available hard drive spaces and the recording quality level.
