Television I was very happy with this t.v and the excellent help from the lovely young lady , only gripe is that the next week the price reduced by £30 ! 09 September 2014
Looks great, great visuals too. 04 September 2014
brilliant buy. this tv has everything i wanted from a H.D tv, and it was excellent value. 02 September 2014
Great TV If you are looking for a good screen, sound and picture then this TV is perfect, however if your are looking for a modern smart tv I wouldn't recommended, you cannot add additional apps and the only one's I can use are youtube and BBC I player, netflix etc are not available. Overall a great buy for a TV size upgrade 28 August 2014
Not bad for the money Good product but sound quality is a little tinny - May invest in a sound bar but overall a good product for the money paid 27 August 2014

Answer: 
I too have this problem I went on Argos Live Chat yesterday and was told Hitachi had emailed argos to say they were having problems with an upgrade to the TV and this would be sorted by Tuesday (6th May) I hope this is the case as I can not get any Smart Apps at all now, Hope this gets resolved as The TV is Fantastic in every other way and Great Value

Answer: 
FYI, make sure the exernal HDD has it's own power source, this TV cannot supply sufficient power through the USB source on it's own. I also believe the max capacity it can use is 1TB.

Answer: 
I assume so because on set-up it asks whether to scan analogue, digital or both. I just opted for the digital scan.

Answer: 
Does the disk have its own power supply, or is it powered over the usb connection ? TV might not be able to supply enough juice to power the disk. Manual does say that disks with external power supplies can be selected.

Manual suggests that usb hubs are not supported, so a powered usb hub may not help.
