Bought the 55lb6300 and can't find time machine anywhere. Was told by lg that this function isn't available on the 2014 models...does anyone know if this is true? Thanks for any help

 

On the 2014 models it is called "time machine 2", and as I understand it, it is only available once you connect an USB disk.

Thanks guys for the responses.....hooked up a 500 gig hdd in usb1 but nothing shows up as a recorder or time machine...the hdd shows up under devices but I can't record to it...I do have to use a cable box and hdmi cable so was now wondering if that's the problem? Maybe can only record from LIVE TV which for me would require a regular house antenna.

Well you should be able to record when you use the built in DVB-T2 tuner (that is how we do it). Don't know about using external decoders and set top boxes... I doubt it will work, but the manual should provide assistance, or make a call to LG support.

you may have to format it to ntfs file system as a lot of devices cant see it if the drive is more than 4 gig,i think

I had time machine installed on my TV even if i didnt connect a usb hdd. I tried to have it work with usb stick but didnt record. Now it works properly with 500GB usb hdd.

I think your problem might be country services limitation. Don't know why, but LG limits some services in some countries.

My TV is imported and I am having problems with mhp services... LG customer service replied that if not present in menu settings it means that mhp is not supported in my tv due to country limitation... so disappointed!!!!

How to record cable TV with LG Time Machine?

I did all the LG instructions recommended, but when I press "Record" I get the error:  "Recording is not available for analogue channels". 

What a nonsense? I got digital cable TV connected to my LG 32LV5500 model. Is there something I can do to overcome this problem or is 

"LG - Life is really that bad?  Thank you in advance for your good advice.

 

Warm Regards, from Joh in St'go de Chile

Only now I found out that... cable TV cannot be recorded with LG TM for personal viewing!! What a load of bull that is!  - Now I feel cheated by LG, because they did not inform or warn me in their user manual... that TM is can only record TV from an antenna source.

Here in St'go de Chile TV signal are reflected/ badly distorted by mountains and so, TV viewers are forced to buy cable and so, unable to record the TV program with TM.

Now what? LG offers no help at all! All they told me is that only antenna TV can be recorded and that cable TV is blocked by HDCP.

 

Question: How to solve this problem? Do I have to seek China's help...? Is there a filter, which cleans this coaxial TV cable of this HDCP filth/madness for private use?

The short and the long suggestions:

  

Short:  use an HDMI-to HDMI splitter to connect to your TV (even though you are only using one of the output connections). The splitter will nullify HDCP.  (Google online for splitters known to work this way. In theory only all splitters should work this way, but a few have built HDCP in.)

  

Long: buy a recorder such as the magnavox MDR867H. Since the only input to the recorder is RCA (yellow-white-red), attach a HDMI-in RCA-out splitter. Now send your input to the recorder. For output use an HDMI cable. Because the input was RCA, the output is not blocked by HDCP. So you can watch and record on TV. The picture looks pretty good, but not as good as the "short" solution above.

 I would be surprised if the LG allows you record from an input (although I admit, I don't know for sure) as I would expect the feature is tied in to the DVB (digital terrestrial) decoder, and intended for timeshiftimg programs.

      If necessity is the mother of invention, then innovation could be viewed as the father of the patent. As of the end of 2020, LG Electronics was one of the world’s top patent holders with more than 87,000 patents to its name, many of them related to steam technology found throughout the company’s lineup of premium household appliances. Two successful products that rely on steam for their effectiveness are LG Styler and LG TWINWash, appliances that in themselves are the result of years of research, development and tinkering.

      In fact, the Styler debuted in 2011, nine years after the idea of the steam-based wardrobe management product was given the green light to begin development. Without a patent system to protect the hundreds of thousands of hours and hundreds of millions of dollars invested to develop products like LG Styler, there would be little incentive for companies to innovate.

      In fact, the Styler is a compilation of more than 180 LG patents covering features such as the Moving Hanger to shake bacteria and allergens* out of suits and dresses to the tune of 200 vibrations per minute and Gentle Dry to draw moisture out of clothes without shrinking or damaging delicate fabrics. The patented TrueSteam in conjunction with Pants Crease Care deliver wrinkle-free trousers with sharp creases, all without an ironing board.

      While the innovation inherent to LG Styler launched a whole new category in home appliances, LG TWINWash was a game changer in its own way. The engineers and designers behind LG TWINWash took a look at a mature product that hadn’t seen much innovation in decades and got to work on solving the age-old problem. With TWINWash, not only can one launder a pair of pants and some socks without feeling guilty about wasting water and electricity, frazzled parents can wash heavily soiled baby clothes separately from adult clothes… simultaneously. One of the patented core technologies that made TWINWash possible is LG’s Direct Drive, which could deliver more reliable, more effective and quicker results than competing technologies.

      One of the many people responsible for LG’s innovation leadership is Dong-won Kim, Ph.D. Laboratory Leader of Living Appliance R&D Lab at LG who is responsible for over 1,000 patents during his 25 years as a researcher at LG. In 2019 he was honored with the Invention King of the Year Award by the Korean Intellectual Property Office.
      “Fundamentally, a home appliance should be able to minimize the effort needed to complete one or more household chores but it has to be convenient and easy to use as well,” Kim explained.” When developing a new product, it is essential to constantly ask oneself, ‘Is this bringing value to the customer?’ At LG, we believe this should be the basis for all good product design.”

      Kim gets his ideas for his inventions from listening to LG customers and everyday people. “LG Styler came from a conversation I had with the wife of a colleague who told me she removed wrinkles from clothes by hanging them in a steam-filled bathroom,” Kim recalled. “The Styler takes this basic concept and expands on it with a combination of user-friendly design and a number of other unique technologies.”
      “The idea for LG TWINWash came after a survey we conducted in 2007 in which 60 percent of the responders said that they wished their washing machines could wash separate loads at the same time,” Kim said. “I’m sure other washing machine makers had heard this complaint before but a two-drum washing machine is no simple matter, which may explain why TWINWash still has no equal even after six years.”
      Like all of LG’s products, LG TWINWash and Styler are products based on innovation and creativity fueled by the need to make consumers’ lives more convenient. But innovating can be a laborious and expensive process and this is where the patent system can help drive technological advancement. For inventors like Kim Dong-won, the assurance that his intellectual property will be protected is incentive to keep creating and improving consumers’ lives.
