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.

      In government offices, a projector’s ability to display information clearly in large team settings makes it an effective tool for boosting collaboration while promoting safe social distancing.
      In hybrid work environments, this technology can make the difference between effective and ineffective collaboration by providing an easy-to-see snapshot of data, no matter where
      the viewer sits.
      The LG ProBeam is a powerful, user-friendly projector, generating some of the most accurate images I’ve seen in years.
      The LG ProBeam Delivers Crisp Images 
      Measuring 14.6x12.8x6.1 inches and weighing about 21 pounds, this 4K laser projector is surprisingly compact, powered by a 5000-lumen lamp that makes it ideal for agency environments, especially compared with other projectors capable of producing images as large as 120 inches.
      A consumer-grade device, the LG ProBeam delivers professional-level projection capable of rendering 3840x2160 4K ultrahigh-definition images. It can project 8.3 million pixels at a native aspect ratio of 16:9, which makes the ProBeam an incredibly sharp projector with color accuracy on par with agency needs.
      I mounted the ProBeam in large, medium and small rooms while measuring the lumens emitted at various distances and image sizes. At each stage, the projector’s light was powerful enough that images were visible up to 30 feet away.
      Images were rendered accurately, with fine details that would be useful for educational initiatives and with the realism needed for detailed maps and military logistical information.
      View Content Easily with the LG ProBeam
      It was easy to set up and share from the LG ProBeam, thanks to wireless screen mirroring designed for streaming output from mobile devices, which eliminates the need for an extra physical connection. WebOS 4.5, the standard in LG smart TV platforms since 2013, also provides native web browsing capabilities.
      As presenters who frequently use projectors know, onboard speakers are often so flawed that they are arguably unusable. The LG has two integrated 5-watt speakers and Bluetooth capability that boosts wireless audio signals to a separate stereo system for improved sound quality.
      Agencies can enhance their collaboration capabilities with the LG ProBeam, a versatile and compact 5000-lumen laser projector that provides a high-resolution 4K display viewable in nearly any lighting.
      Performance Meets Convenience in the LG ProBeam
      Aside from its great image quality, perhaps the best characteristic of the LG ProBeam is the array of added features that make it by far the brightest object in a conference room.
      Starting with a 12-point keystone picture adjustment, the ProBeam empowers audiovisual engineers to tailor every display to the demands of the room and the agency. Further, keystone operations are easy and intuitive to perform on both the physical unit and the remote control.
      The detailed keystone adjustment, coupled with the extreme brightness capability of the device, lets agency users project a minimum screen size of 40 inches and a maximum of 300 inches (about 25 feet).
      With a 1.6X zoom feature, engineers can easily show presenters how to immediately project a 60 percent larger image without moving or readjusting the projector. That means users can take a 100-inch projection and switch it to a 160-inch display in seconds, if needed.
      Adding to the ease of operation is the simple-to-use wireless connectivity for screen mirroring, which makes for quick work by engineers during a live event. Wireless connection is possible with any Android device; USB or HDMI ports are available for wired connections.
      Laser projection technology also helps users manage long-term costs by minimizing bulb outages that interrupt operations and require expensive replacements.
      The LG ProBeam can provide 20,000 hours of lamp life, with far less dimming evident over the life of the projector compared with bulb-based models. It also makes projections bright enough for well-lit rooms or meeting areas without closing the curtains or turning off lights.
      Integrated Bluetooth audio capability solves a long-standing issue that audiovisual engineers often grapple with: a receiver that drives good sound quality. Because the ProBeam not only provides good native sound but can also send a signal to an in-room speaker system, it’s ideal for use in dedicated conference rooms and small huddle spaces.
      Having a projector that is functional in almost any lighting condition and that does not require any special training — even to access advanced features — is one of the main reasons why the LG ProBeam is great for government. Government employees can concentrate on their presentations and not worry about the gear they are using to share their information.

      I have two LG TVs, 65SM8600PTA and OLED48A1PTA respectively. Both are connected to the same NAS router via LAN cable. Both can enter the NAS folder containing my Chinese drama series collection.
      65SM8600PTA can play everything smoothly. OLED48A1PTA always stucks at loading the drama series folder (which contains ~60 video files, each video is in the size range 400MB-2GB) for very long time, >3 minutes. Upon clicking into the last layer folder, the spinner spins for very long time while attempting to regenerate previews for this and parent folders. So if there is an option to skip generating video/image previews, then listing folder content can complete much faster, and then that will solve the problem.
      I would like request this additional option for OLED48A1PTA to skip generating preview so that NAS video list can show up quickly.
      OLED48A1PTA is bought from Shopee recently under 15-day-free-return policy, if you can push an update before 2022-02-10 that solves this problem, I will accept the product. Otherwise I will raise a return-and-refund request because the OLED screen also has vertical strip issue when displaying grey background.

      Disruptive Concept in Ownership Extends Usability of Appliances
      That Can Be Upgraded to Meet New Usage Trends, Patterns

      SEOUL, Jan. 25, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is set to change the existing paradigm of home appliance usage with an upgradability option that adapts to the unique and changing lifestyles of customers. Developed under the concept, Evolving Appliances For You, LG upgradable appliances have the capability to incorporate new features developed in the future based on owners’ usage patterns and habits.
      What upgradability brings to the table is the ability to add a new function or convenience to an existing appliance through new software, new hardware or both. For example, users can improve the performance of the LG PuriCare air purifier when a new pet joins the family by upgrading with the Pet Care Filter to more thoroughly filter out pet fur and dander from the air.1 Upgradable LG dryers can be enhanced later on to handle different climates and fabrics with new accessories and software downloadable from the Upgrade Center in the LG ThinQ app.
      For the customer, upgradability enables the LG appliance to keep up with changing trends and usage patterns over the many years of that product’s lifespan, extending usefulness many times over. In all, LG is planning to introduce approximately 20 upgradable appliances this year.2
      “Upgradeability challenges the idea that expensive appliances are designed with planned obsolescence in mind,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We want customers to experience the feeling of getting a new washer or refrigerator throughout the entire lifecycle of an LG appliance, not just the first time they bring the item home.”
      Customers in specific markets can expect to see LG’s first upgradable washer and dryer later this year. Follow LG’s Home Appliance Instagram account () for more information when available.

      2  Upgradable products and features may vary depending on model and region.

      I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?
