I usually connect an external HDD to my TV to watch videos. My question is, if there is a power outage, will it affect the hard drive in anyway? I know it will do bad if it is a computer, but what about a TV? Also, my kids sometimes just turns the TV off in the middle of a programme (when the HDD is running). Is it alright? Are there any general precautions we should take when we connect a hard drive to a TV?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
