Oh really? I must have imagined then my 8GB and 16GB flash drives
formatted as FAT32. And my TDT STB recording to it and splitting the
recording into several 4GB files seamlessly. ;-)

None of the TVs I have with USB ports support NTFS, one does exFAT,
the other doesn't, only supports FAT32.

Samsung releases its ExFAT driver under the GPLv2
