How much video on 32gb usb stick

Hi everyone, I have a new television that supports recording to a usb device. I have used a 32mg USB stick but it only seems to record a few hrs 2 or 3 before the playback restarts from the beginning. Is this right as I would have expected a much longer record time.

Really depends on what type of video file its saving as comparison

1080 or 720? resolution will also make a difference.

TV can be recorded as Standard Defintion or High Definition and High Definition can be 720 or 1080 flavour.

They each require different amount of storage space, SD being the least and 1080 HD the most.

Googling suggest 3 hours at 1080 would take up most of your 32GB.

Thanks Bremner, TV is 1080 so what you say seems about right 3Hrs.
