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

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.

Nobbyt, I have installed the firmware v2-1-40
I fond the HDMI in the app selection.
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.

It's not a problem, we'll help on this forum regardless.

We do deliver to Holland though. We deliver everywhere, with free courier shipping.
