    Yes it will work, this is the one I have on my X9S.

    I use it as the storage for the recordings of my HDHomerun TV tuners.

    X9S is also acting as my NAS shared network drive (OpenWRT) View attachment 3123 .

    The HDHomerun DVR recording engine is also driven by the same X9S.

    already tried 3 x9s. but still same result. formatted the disc to all kinds of format. therefore i confirmed zidoo can't read 8tb seagate directly on usb ports.
