How to initialize HDD manually

Well, You have HDD (Internal or External) and You want to use it for recording and timeshift, but somehow initialization trough menu is not working ? Here is solution :

1. Connect to AzBox by telnet and type this command

umount /dev/sda1

2. Now we will format HDD in ext3 FS

mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1

3. With this command we will mount HDD under /media/hdd

mount /dev/sda1 /media/hdd

4. To be able to record and use timeshift we need to create directory movie in /media/hdd

cd /media/hdd

mkdir movie

Now, all is done.
