Did anybody have any issue with using a 2.5 HDD with it's power drawn from the HDTV Recorder? Like the power supply failing?

I'm debating if I should set it up with a 2.5 HDD that gets it's power from the unit versus a 3.5 HDD that has it's own power supply. My number one choice is a 2.5 as long as it doesn't overload the power supply of the unit.

 

Thanks

It depends on the draw of the drive and the capabilities of the supply. heat is the issue. As long as the draw isn't excessive and the supply is cooled, there shouldn't be a problem.

A IR thermometer is very handy to have more many reasons.



3 1/2' drives have to be powered separately.
