    How to initialize HDD manually

    '' You have HDD (Internal or External) and You want to use it for recording and timeshift, but somehow initialization trough menu is not working ? Here is solution :

    1. Connect to AzBox by telnet and type this command

    umount /dev/sda1

    2. Now we will format HDD in ext3 FS

    mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1

    3. With this command we will mount HDD under /media/hdd

    mount /dev/sda1 /media/hdd

    4. To be able to record and use timeshift we need to create directory movie in /media/hdd

    cd /media/hdd

    mkdir movie

    Now, all is done.
