I have a hard drive in a caddy with USB and eSata connections and I have a smart TV. I would like to use the Hard Drive to record TV shows. When I plug the hard drive into the TV via the USB and press record it works great. But if I set the timer to start recording after 15 minutes it fails because the Hard Drive has gone into some sort of sleep mode. The drive inside I believe is a Winchester disk.
Is there anything I can tweak with a firmware utility to turn this sleep mode off as its preventing me from timer recording. I can plug the drive into a PC to tweak it, just need to know the software to run on it.
