Recording on OriginTV

Get Recording on your OriginTV

Setting up your Origin TV for recording has never been easier and it’s available on all of our devices.

Before we get started, please ensure that you have a USB stick with a minimum size of 32GB, there is nothing currently stored on there and that you have the Origin TV mobile application on your mobile phone.

  • Plug your USB drive into the back of your Origin TV device.
  • On your Origin TV, navigate to the Recording section and follow the on screen instructions.

You are now ready to start recording your favourite shows and series. All recorded shows will be in the My OriginTV avenue on your Origin TV.

If your Origin TV is having any problems reading your USB stick, please try the following:

Note that this will wipe all contents from your USB stick. Please ensure any items you would like to keep are saved elsewhere before completing this action.

  • Plug your USB stick into a USB drive on your PC or laptop.
  • Right click on the drive and select “Format”
  • Select the “File System” as “NTFS” and select the “Quick Format” option.
  • Click “Start” Once formatting has been completed, you can remove the USB stick from the computer and try again on your Origin TV
