Replacement hard drive size

Hi, do you know what the maximum supported drive size is? I was thinking of replacing the 500gb drive in my youview+ box with a 3tb western digital purple drive. Any feedback welcome- thanks

    If you don’t get an answer from someone who has actually done what you are trying to do:-

    You can pull the 500GB drive from a Humax box, and put in a 1TB, maybe even a 2TB.

    Just hook the disc up, and the YouView box will sniff it, and format and partition it suitably for YouView use.

    Worst case is it gets rejected; second worst case is it doesn’t use the whole capacity.

    But certainly worth a try.

    Doesn’t work on a Huawei (TalkTalk) Box though, it has been reported; this will only ever take 384GB, no matter how big a disc you give it,
