mine records in full HD at 3 GB approx per 30 minsso for 2 hours you would need a 16 GB stick if yours is similar recording compression etc.

Externally Powered hard drive might be better to be sure.

External drive. The times I've tried to record to a flash drive it hasn't been able to keep up and the recording ends up very broken.

Also be aware most freeview decoders intentionally 'mess up' the transport stream headers so you can't copy the file to a computer, or play it back anywhere except through the same box that recorded it.
