Apparently your TV indicates it needs a USB HDD (Hard Disk Drive) for PVR function, unfortunately a memory stick isnt a hard disk.. But anyhoo, did you attempt initialising the memory stick first..

"USB HDD must be initialized to be used for DVR.
When connecting a USB HDD that has not been initialized, select MY APPS ➾
DVR. USB Device Initialization screen appears.
Complete the USB HDD initialization, and set Timeshift Mode to On."

Wont make a difference on his TV... It needs to be formatted by the TV (initialised) then any recording will be in the TV's own proprietary encypted DVR format, this it to prevent playback & copying of HD content on other devices... Additionally, his TV states it needs a Hard Disk for PVR functionality, so if it doesnt accept a memory stick for PVR then thats the TV's design...
