Has anyone used a micro sd card in the h.s2 box for recording and rewind feature? If so what size is suitable and is there much in way of set up? Thanks in advance

I've got 32GB micro SD cards in a few of my boxes - neater than a USB stick hanging out of the back of the box and they all record and timeshift without any issue. Setup was easy I think it was - menu, mounts, device manager. You should be able to format it from there and then set it as HDD

Only downside is sometimes larger micro SDs can sometime be a b*tch to initialise in the box and have to be done on a PC. Not a hardship, just something to be aware of.

Could you clarify what to format to and also is there any limit on size I should go? Cheers in advance

I've used 128gb with no problems. Just make sure it's class 10 and format it to ext4 on your pc first. MiniTool Partition Wizard highly recommended.

For that price it's almost certainly fake I would think. Fleabay is plagued with fake media, I would try Amazon.

Yes, just google partition and formatting tools for mac.
The box just seems to struggle to format larger microsd's for some reason.
I just checked Amazon and it's at least £30 for a 128gb microsd. £8 for a 256gb drive just isn't realistic.

Making progress, but having trouble mounting getting the zgemma to see the sd card. It does see the usb stick! I Formatted sd to ext 4 The sd seems to mount ok but when you go to > Info > Devices it is not detected but the usb is detected as an HDD rather than usb could tis be part of the problem? I have now tried many different formatting tools but to no avail. Any ideas gratefull received ps 64gb scan disc ultra card!

Try both and go for what you feel more comfortable using
