Hitachi HXT12U 42 In Full HD1080p FVHD LED TV + Smart Apps. 4.4 5 386 399
smart tv really good value tv.Easy to set up 15 October 2014
Good telly Needed a bigger telly (Rugby World Cup's coming up!) with a Freeview HD tuner. Good telly at a keen price and easy to reserve and pickup from a local store But I haven't found how to switch it off yet...... 30 September 2014
Hittachi hxt12u great price and service from Argos easy connectivity and set up smart apps really good i player particularly good 30 September 2014
Hitachi This TV is pretty good, although some of the functionality leaves a bit to be desired. You cant watch a program and scroll through whats on next, without completely closing the screen, and not all features are available on internet settings. Sound is okay quality but tends to vibrate at higher levels. Great picture though and pretty fast response rate. 29 September 2014
great for the price Bought this tv in the sale as my original tv was irreparable, sound is good as is the picture, my main issue is connecting to the internet or streaming film/pictures through the WiFi dongle(sold Separately) it often disconnects and on times the tv is not findable when searching for it through your phone/tablet. The hdmi and other outlets to rear of tv are quite snug against my wall when connected didn't have this with my last tv(Bush) as the connectors were deeper into the casing. 21 September 2014

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.

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.
