I have a 60GB SSD on a intel NUC and it is becoming full occasionally, depending on my recording needs.
Some of my TV recordings are daily (such as news etc) and others are once a week (such as sitcoms)

I was thinking about keeping daily recordings and subsequent deletion on the SSD (frequent read/writes)
and store the weekly recordings on an external USB stick (flash) 32GB because i only access those
recordings once a week (fewer read/writes).

I mounted the external USB as a 32GB XFS filesystem under /media/usb

How do i record different programs on different drives in LinHES myhtv ?

Wow, that is a tight system nowadays... Anyways, to answer your question,

Look into defining additional storage groups and specifying the correct storage group in your recording settings.

Hope this helps..

spend $100 and get an external drive.
This external 4TB drive is on sale this week. ... 6822178741
That would be 66.7 times the amount of storage you currently have.

Is there any advantages of plugging in an SSD, Matt?

Simple answer "Faster is always better"
If you are talking about an SSD over SATA, PCI-E, or M.2 then yes it would be much faster and better. If you are talking about an SSD in a USB container then even USB3 is your bottleneck not the drive itself. a full 1080P, Dolby surround sound ATSC, MPEG 2 stream OTA is around 20 Megabits per second and USB 2 could handle 480 Mbits/s and USB 3 can handle 5 gigabits per second total. So if you have a lot of things on the USB bus you might run into issues, and some internal things like WiFi are sometimes on the USB bus for simplicity.
