  1. You can only record when using the antenna, not while using a set top box.
  2. No, you can not do that. You need something like this:video grabber to grab video to a computer. These converters are not very expensive.
  3. I don't have problems with Plex for being unresponsive. What I did was disable video stream transcoding because the Plex app on my LG tv can play all the formats I send it. Why you have to disable VPN, I don't know. Not using VPN on the machine my Plex server is on. On an other machine with VPN I can tweak which addresses are send over VPN and which not but don't know if that helps you. But, if you don't like Plex, maybe you can try something like emby. I don't have experience with that but maybe it is something for you. Something I tried before was serviio. This works but was not as slick as Plex. Good luck and stay save
  4. DNLA subtitles are supported but not in all languages (as you can find on this forum). The Media player is a bit simple. It works with Serviio (I have used it) but there are nicer solutions. I myself use Plex but there are more apps that do the same. For Plex there is a native app on the TV and that works great.
  5. All standard applications from LG are very simple. There are a few apps in de LG store that do a better job. What I use is Plex. You use a computer as a Plex media server. It will show the thumbnails, actors backgrounds and much more. More info on internet There are more media servers (like Serviio) ore apps on in de LG store but this is for me the best.
  6. Hmm, it is indeed a bit strange.... but you can always make a wish 🙂
  7. The Plex App is called Plex and it is (al least on my TV) available in the App store. I just looked in the LG App Store on my TV and man, there are a lot of apps now. You have to select 'All' to find it. X-Play was the predecessor of the Plex App before this app was available on the LG TV.
  8. The network interface of the TV is only 100MB, enough for most movies but sometimes not enough for 4K content. You can more info on this elsewhere on this forum. My suggestion was to add Plex (or Emby or something else) as a server on a computer and add all the network drives you want to that computer. This could stream the content to your TV using the native Plex (of Emby) app. LG is not reading this forum. It is a User to User Support forum.
  9. You can disable transcoding in the native Plex app by setting video to 'original'. There is also an Emby player where transcoding can be disabled on the server but I do not have any experience with that.
  10. What I, and more people on this forum do, is use something like Plex. You can setup a Plex server on your computer very easy and let this server use NAS or other external drives. There is a native Plex App for the LG tv and this works much better than DNLA, using USB discs or drives. Only 3D doesn't work very well, but who is using that? 🙂
  11. Maybe the player only fetch the files when it starts. You could 'kill' the player by clicking the X above it and try to restart it. Maybe that helps.
  12. The native player is a bit primitive. The best way is to set up a simple server on your computer and a player on your TV. There are a few examples buy I use Plex. The LG App works great and setting up the server is not to difficult. Subtitles are much better supported. Good luck.
  13. You can't. Because of copyright reasons all recordings are encrypted and can only be played on the TV they are recorded (as far as I understand it).
  14. You can't. Because of copyright reasons all recordings are encrypted and can only be played on the TV they are recorded (as far as I understand it).
  15. I am not aware of any other native video player on the LG TV. There are a few things you can do: Invest in a ethernet cable and connect the TV to you local network / computer Convert the movie to a format the LG TV understand Buy a Android TV box that can play your movie and connect it to your TV. Good luck
