shows under "Additional Feature" it shows Time Machine and other DVR related stuff:
Time Machine (DVR): Yes
Digital Recording: Yes
Analog DVR: Yes
Time Shift: Yes
So, in theory this COULD be done, BUT you mention FreeSat. I am not familiar with this, only FreeView+ HBB stuff. Have you tried the normal antenna FTA (digital Freeview+) channels from the normal antenna? Those certainly work on my Australian LG 55UB850T. Can you tune those in, and recheck if you can set up (initialise) the HDD disk for Time Machine use?
I've had the same problem and it is because the wi-fi card is not working. I have had intermittent internet for almost 4 years and then this happened too. Technician told me this brand is renowned for it. New board installed under extended warranty all OK. Get price before purchasing as could be very expensive.
The only way to get "Smart"Share to refresh folder contents is to manually remove the affected shared folders, and then readd them. Every single time there is a change. There will never be an auto-refresh. Ever.
Thanks, LG (yes, that's sarcasm).
PS. Extra points for throwing my first reply to the bit heaven in the process of registering an account (which you said I can do later but, apparently, I can not).
PPS. Oh, and couple more extra points for making "Smart"Share PC client EXCRUCIATINGLY slow and clumsy in everything.

Current software version is 05.80.15
It won't find any new updates while checking from TV menu.
Should I upgrade it to 05.80.55 by downloading from LG India website?
Reason for asking is sometimes the apps act funny, especially Hotstar app seems buggy or not quick to respond. Does work ok most of the time.
Thanks for any helpful advice.
@kimbovk1984 Translated the above: " hello good [people], I have a television lg webos tv oled55b7v and the image and the colors do not look good. I need someone who can show me how to configure [it]".
As no-one on this forum will be able to "see" the issue, or know what you current settings actually are, it would be almost impossible to know how to advise you on what to do. You need to call in a local TV technician, and let him take a look, and set things to how you want them.
@JuliusCaesar First, on the laptop, check that it is on the same WiFi band (2.4GHz or 5GHz) as the TV. Then on the laptop, go to ALL Settings (from the notifications bottom right), key in "media" without the quotes in the search box, and when you see "Media Streaming" select that. If it is off, click the "turn it on" banner, and set all discovered devices you want to "stream" (or cast) to to ALLOW in the tick-boxes (make sure that they are ALL turned on first of course)! Then try again.
If you still have issues, ensure you are at the latest Feature Update on Windows 10 (that could be the April 2020 one, called "2004", or the new October one called "20H2". I hear that the later one is MUCH better than the "2004" one!
Failing all of the above, you may have to resort to using "Smartshare" on the laptop (downloadable program) and TV, but I always found it very clunky and unreliable.
@David Ramplin I HAVE seen something similar posted on here, and it MIGHT be related to TV firmware or WebOS updates on certain models.
This is only a Peer to Peer forum, and has NO control or voice, or feed DIRECTLY into LG. If this is a recent issue, and you think it is caused by a recent update, please report it to LG support in your country.
The more user who report issue, the quicker the resolution (in theory anyway). 😊
