It's not as simple as that.
You have to use a sata cable and a voltage supply cable  to the four large pins on
the rear of the drive, as usb outlets do not supply enough power to run a 3.5" Drive.
or install in tower type pc in sata slot with pc 's built in power supply.
Something like this

Then format drive with pc Disk Management

Now I don't know how to use the Seagate for recording programs.
I can't find the manuel To start recording with the Seagate.
Can someone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

Put the drive  in the x20. the x20 will find it.  go to apps. open hdmi in, and follow instructions  to record. tell the hdmi in page where you want to save recordings. You can allways move them later if you wish to.
As I said  if recording from sky/dvd  you will need  a splitter.   if from you camcorder you wont need splitter
Let me know if you need more help.

It took 6 weeks for my delivery from China.

Would like to point out that you definitely didn't buy the box from us!

This is a great example of why buying from us with fast courier shipping worldwide beats buying at maybe a slightly lower price from China.

The advice given already is correct regards your question.

I want to point out that I tried to order it what Nobbyt  proposed, but they don't deliver in Holland and that' where I live
So I had to find another who can deliver to Holland.
That is the reason.
For me it was also long time waiting.
Hope you understand this.

But there is no HDMI signal
How to get this HSMI signal
Is it also possible that I can record from tv stations from apps
Again I thank you for helping me.

If as you say you have formated the drive you do not need that sata  lead  . You may still need the splitter if recording from dvd or sky

Post by: nobbyt on March 11, 2019, 01:16:46 PM

Post by: markrutte10 on March 11, 2019, 01:20:57 PM
For example in the app is a station called BBC one and I want to record a program  .
what do I need then to get signal
Title: Re: How to connect seagate st2000dm006 in zidoox20
Post by: nobbyt on March 11, 2019, 01:25:19 PM
I repeat you record you MUST use the hdmi in socket. You can listem to bbc etc but you cannot record .  ONLY through the hdmi port.
If you wanted to record bbc it would have to come from sky or simular through the hdmi in port.

Post by: nobbyt on March 12, 2019, 09:12:04 AM
Tell me what are you trying to record from ???    dvd ? sky ?  other ?

With the splitter you take hdmi lead from,          i.e. sky to input of sptitter. From out put of splitter  to hdmi in of x20, other output from splitter goes to tv or amp.. you will need two hdmi 2.00 leads of good quality.and of course the splitter
aS I said YOU WILL ONLY NEED THE SPLITTER IF RECORDING FROM PROTECTED MATERIAL. hdcp
