I just realized I have lost many manual videos because I assumed they were being saved to my USB drive. I'd call this a bug rather than a feature request. Wouldn't a reasonable person think all recorded content would save to the USB drive too? Please fix this before others lose data, thanks!


Manual recordings should be saved to the backup USB device. I don't consider this a suggestion, but a bug. Please resolve with all haste. Thanks.
