Yes, I putting it in MB/s form, either 1000MB/s or 1250MB/s

Just divide the bit rate by 10 to get the net bytes/s will give quite
correct results. Place remember the preamble, Ethernet headers and
standard Ethernet frames are used. With 9000 byte Jumbo frames, you
might get slightly better than that. For practical purposes 10 Gbit/s

Any ideas?

10Gbit/s = 1GByte/s = 1000MByte/s
Do you agree that 1GByte/s equals 1000MByte/s ?

Are you trying to troll in this newsgroups or are americans really
that stupid that they do not understand the relationship between kilo,
mega, giga, tera etc ?

What is this ? 1250 Mbytes/s is 10000 Mbit/s assuming a byte is 8
bits, which of course not a universal truth. In addition, you have to
include any overhead in the form of message framing.

With other definitions of a byte (e.g. capable of holding (a Unicode)
character, the byte might be also 16, 21 or 32 bits. In the old days
a unit capable of storing a character (such as 36 bit word) could also
store six 6 bit characters, four 9 bit characters, two 18 bit (UCS-2,
UTF-16) characters or any Unicade (UTF-32) character in 36 bit word.

An octet is exactly 8 bits, so if you want to define 8 bit octets,

If the camera really does have a 2GB limit, it's probably FAT32 with
an MBR.

Try a FAT32 specific format program:

It looks to be a \$40 DVR but yeesh, FAT32 only in 2019? I'd spend a
little more if that's the case what's it going to do when recording
1080p? You'll hit 4 gig file size limit real quick.

I've been reading the French manual the only problem with that is I
don't know French. And it's in French. cuz it's a French manual.

Oh it's got parental controls, great, wouldn't want the kids to see all
that porn PBS broadcasts OTA around here...

My Jr High Skool French is a lost cause. Digging anyway:
<http://www.mediasonic.ca/product.php?id=1365123671>
The manual is at:
<http://www.mediasonic.ca/files/1382658092_1.pdf>
On Pg 15 is a table (that won't let me cut-n-paste) that shows:
TIMESHIFT PVR RECORD FORMAT
USB flash drive functions functions FAT32
3.5 inch HDD functions functions NTFS
2.5 inch HDD functions functions NTFS / FAT32
1.8 inch HDD won't work functions NTFS / FAT32

On the data sheet it proclaims:
USB Multimedia Player (Support USB Flash Drive up to 64GB
or USB 3.5" External Hard Drive up to 2TB).
and
Recording Function: Record TV Show (Suggest to use USB 2.5"
or 3.5" External Hard Drive, Hard Drive formate MBR)
(USB Flash Drive NOT recommended)

So, the 1TB Western Dismal drive should work if it can be convinced to
do MBR flavor partitions in NTFS. No mention of block sizes so both
512 bytes and 4KBytes should be tried.

Try putting a space between the 1250 and the MB/s.

Did you try formatting the 1TB drive in Windows "Disk Management" with a
512 byte cluster size using MBR? Look here:

<https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/disk-management/initialize-new-disks>

Note the second screen where you can select the partition table type
using a radio button, make sure it's set to MBR

Sorry. I automatically associate DVR's (digital video recoders) with
security camera systems. Replace "camera" with "DVR". Also, since it
has a 2TB limit, not 2GB, it can handle NTFS. There's also exFAT, but
since it wasn't mentioned in the literature, I don't think it's
needed.

WD Format tool:
Might be useful to return the drive to it's original NTFS condition.

The programs I suggested for FAT32 work nicely for reformatting hard
disk drives and USB flash drives. I run into that ocassionally when I
need to cram a modern drive into an older DVR. However, I think NTFS
and an MBR partition will make things work.

Try is with just 1250 and no units of measure.
Try using GBps instead of GB/s. It might be screwing up on the "/"

Ya, I did get in. It required a space between 1250 and MB/s. 1250 MB/s
Even the the question didn't show that way.

BTW I just played around with the formatting utility in Windows and it
appears to select "GPT"-type partition table for NTFS by default, note
that the manual says the box does _not_ support GPT and the partition
table must be MBR-style, so you have to select that instead when formatting.

If the camera really does have a 2GB limit, it's probably FAT32 with
an MBR.

Try a FAT32 specific format program:

It's not a camera it's an OTA digital video recorder.

Or as they say, " ATSC Digital Converter Box w/ TV Recording, Media
Player, and TV Tuner Function"
I call it the wife's soap recorder.

Sorry. I automatically associate DVR's (digital video recoders) with
security camera systems. Replace "camera" with "DVR". Also, since it
has a 2TB limit, not 2GB, it can handle NTFS. There's also exFAT, but
since it wasn't mentioned in the literature, I don't think it's
needed.

WD Format tool:
Might be useful to return the drive to it's original NTFS condition.

The programs I suggested for FAT32 work nicely for reformatting hard
disk drives and USB flash drives. I run into that ocassionally when I
need to cram a modern drive into an older DVR. However, I think NTFS
and an MBR partition will make things work.

Now that I've been allowed to become a member of the Mediasonic forum,
I hope a factory rep will fill in all the details for the HW150.

OK, maybe you can answer my question then.
I have Mediasonic HW150 digital Video recorder.
I recently purchased a WD 1T hard drive, when installed
and I try to record, it says no disk found. Although it
does recognize a USB cable was inserted.
The drive is in NTFS file format, do I need to change that to
FAT32?

To prevent spambots I need to answer this question to confirm
registration to a forum.

"If USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 speed is 10Gbps, What is the speed of
10Gbps in MB/s (Answer must include MB/s):"

I thought it would just be Gig to Meg or 1000, but I ge,t "that
is an
" 10 Gigabit Ethernet speed 10 Gbit/s = 1250 Megabytes per second"
But that also gives me a "that is an invalid answer".
Yes, I putting it in MB/s form, either 1000MB/s or 1250MB/s

Any ideas?

It must just be syntax.

Think 8 bit words.

So essentially divide by ten to make up for ecc and overhead.

Your post title is wrong too. It should be a lower case "b" as in
bits per second instead of bytes per second
