Compatibility Notice for Magic TV - Seagate Expansion Desktop

It is NOT recommended to use Seagate Expansion Desktop USB 3.0 HDD with Magic TV.

Magic TV (except the SMP8673 models such as MTV3300D / MTV3800D with firmware 8.04 or later) may not be able to use its full capacity in native Linux ext2 format.

If you already have one and cannot format it by Magic TV, or Magic TV does not see its full capacity, a workaround is to use NTFS format by Windows (for SMP8655 models MTV3200(S/D) / MTV3700D / MTV7000D(-mini)).  However, this workaround is not extensively tested.

All older SMP8635 Magic TV models MTV3000 / MTV3100(S/D) / MTV3500 / MTV3600D / MTV5000(S/D) may not be able to use its full capacity.  Only ~610GB (not GiB) of Seagate Expansion Desktop USB 3.0 2TB can be used.  If you attempt to format it by Linux PC as ext2, Magic TV will report its full capacity but serious problems will occur in actual usage.  This cannot be fixed.

Thanks for the info...

Although I have been using Seagate Expansion 1TB with my MTV5000 for 2-3 years without any problems.

3.5" and most likely USB 2.0, can't remember the specs.
