Connect an external hard drive to your Satellite receiver

Instructions for connecting an external hard drive

What you need: A USB cable, an external hard drive (EHD), and a TELUS Satellite receiver.

For additional recording space, you can connect an external hard drive to your TELUS Satellite receiver.

Note: This process completely erases the hard drive on the external drive you are connecting. To avoid losing any data, back up your drive before connecting it to your TELUS Satellite receiver.

  1. Connect your external hard drive to a power source
  2. Connect your external hard drive to your receiver using a USB cable. Note: A USB port is located on both the front and back of your receiver.
  3. If this your first time connecting the hard drive to a receiver, a formatting message appears. Wait for this message to disappear.

Your external hard drive is now connected and ready for use.
