LgUF640g smart tv usb connection does not seem to recognise

lgUF640g smart tv usb connection does not seem to recognise hard drive for recording.I have read the manuals I can find and they seem to suggest that with a normal remote control, while a program is on one can press ok and get the option to record the current program to an external disk. Also there is suggestion that I should be able to record on schedule.I have plugged in a 160GB external USB 2 drive and it is recognised for playback as there is music and photographs on there but it will not give me anywhere an option to record.As far as I remember the disk was FAT32 formatted initially. Is this the problem? DO I need to reformat in NTFS or something like that?Please help as I would love to record in High def directly from the TV.
