Fetch TV Media Hub USB drives

I have recently started using Media Hub on Gen 2 box and have noticed that my connected hard drives remain on even after box is powered down. Is there a way to turn off hard drives?

 

Cheers

Re: Fetch TV Media Hub USB drives

You could by a portable drive with an external power point.

 

But essentially no. Drives are generally programmed to stop spinning and go into a quiet mode after a certain period. The power usage would be minimal (5W overnight)
