Sorry I do not, I assumed it was specified in the owner's manual? Does the HDD run on a separate powersource or power from the UBS itself? Is it USB2/USB3? 


Maybe try a different USB cable? I have had hardware in the past that worked like a charm with 1 cable and very shaky with another...

To use the Time Machine do the following steps:

1. Make sure that your HDD is formated in NTFS

2. Connect the HDD to the TV using USB1

3. Go to Time Machine tile

4. In settings, check the Live play feature and check the HDD you want to use. 

5. return to the TV channel and see if the grey bar that progressively turns pink appears. Also see if on the bottom right side you have a clock and an x signal. 


There you go. It should work now. I have an USB3 Seagate Go Flex HDD with 500GB capacity.

TV is saying no HDD is connected


Is it required to format HDD before using it for Time Machine ? 


Is it required to wipe out all the data before using it for TV ?

Problem can create a HDD with a very long cord or if it requires special drivers and startup programs.

Suffice it to disk is formatted as FAT32 or NTFS.

No need to remove other records from HDD. TV created in the root directory of the disk folder lg_dvr. Recording video format is MPEG 2 and is encrypted.

Hi All,
If your HDD's format is NTFS than no need to format. I had the issue with my 1tb WD My Passport and the issue was it is password protected.
Also check that your HDD should not auto run any application(.exe) while connecting, if it is then it will not be detected by TV

How can I check that? 

My UH6107 doesn't recognize a WD Passport 1TB or a 2.5" 500 GB in a Thermaltake Rack

Simply connect your HDD to computer. If it run any application (i.e. WD Unlocker) then disable it or remove it.
It may be possible that there is a virus in your HDD and it is running automatically while you are connecting to any device. So it is better that you scan it.

Some time it takes lots of time to detect. It is totally depending of number of files present in your HDD.
One more things to remember is that file system of the HDD must be NTFS

If this doesn't work than backup your data and format your HDD and try again without any data.

Hope this helps

      Good evening, I have a Smart LG 24MT49S PZ television and for a few days now I can no longer access the installed apps or the various settings, the television starts the apps and settings for a few seconds and then closes them a few seconds later making me return to the channel I was watching . Since, as specified, even the functions in the television menu are not accessible, it is not even possible for me to try to reset the television, does anyone know how I can proceed? Waiting for your reply, I send you my best regards.

      I have purchased a new TV and I'm unable to login to the LG account. Whenever i try i get the error saying : The lg services country information could not be retrieved from the server. Image is attached !
      I have registered the TV online on lg.com I tried resetting and rebooting the TV I tried the LG customer service which is pathetic and they just asked to exchange the TV with the retailer ( I don't know what customer service is smoking, if people start replacing TV for every software issue, it will be the end for LG Business)  What else can be done?

      I have. an LG43UQ91006LA.I am having problems with the ITVX app, it keeps buffering as much as 5 times over a 1 hour programme after the buffering I get a banner come up telling me I have a problem with my internet,  but everything else is working the banner disappears after a few seconds and everything works until the next buffering, just wondering if anybody else has the same problem? I have no problems with other apps, BBC I player,Channel4, My5. If I use Amazon Firestick all the channels run smoothly including ITVX.

      I have an LG UQ8100 TV with the latest WebOS v03.30.60.
      There are so many websites that not properly working with the included webos browser. Seems there is some problem with processing modern JavaScript solutions. Some parts are missing (e.g. sliders), that on PC works flawlessly from Chrome/Firefox/Edge.
      The second problem is with the online streaming services. There are so many provider in my case Udemy, that is widely used from web, but has no dedicated webos app. (I have the same problem with Telekom TVGO).
      The problem is with the encoded video streams. They are loading infinite or play 2-3 seconds then stops and starts never again.
      It is clear that the problem is with the webos browser solution, any other platform (PC, mobile), these sites works flawlessly.
      In the settings I tried to switch on and off the "Adaptive JavaScript streaming" option, but nothing changed.
      So the browser needs to be updated, because at the moment it is useless to me and there is no alternatives.
