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

47LB630V-ZA Italy

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.

    • Looking to buy Smart TV with screen grab function - Questions

      I am not a current owner of an LG Smart TV but I'm looking to buy a Smart TV with a screen grab function built into the TV.  I searched and came upon information in this forum that LG Smart TV's with WebOS on them do indeed have a screen grab feature and I have some questions regarding that. 1. Just to reaffirm my info, do LG Smart TV's actually have a screen grab feature built into them? 2. Is WebOS stand alone software built into the TV set? In other words, is the TV independent of a PC operating system? 3. Concerning the screen grab feature. Is the screen grab feature independent within the TV set/not dependent on any other device to operate? 4. Can you save your screen grab to a USB drive? 5. If you can save your image to a USB drive what format does the TV save them in? JPEG, BMP, etc. 6. What is the max resolution the TV saves the screen grab? 7. Can you do a screen grab of any image ported to your TV from any device? Cable STB, Video Game Console, etc. 8.  The info that I read on another thread here  said  that to take a screenshot on the LG you press the input/123  button on the remote and save it to the photo editing app. Is this photo editing app a part of the LG TV software and do you navigate and execute commands in this photo editing app with the remote control?

    • LG Smart TV Time Machine transfer file to HDD?

      I have recorded files from my LG Smart TV Time Machine that I would like to transfer to a hard drive. But there isn't an option for dragging the files into the hard drive.   The shows that I recorded aren't TV shows but instead are personal old recorded videos (like are 10+ years old) from an old camcorder that used a miniDV tape. And I used Time Machine's recording feature to turn it into a digital file so the tapes could be stored digitally.   Right now the recordings are in the TV. And I have my HDD plugged in. If only there was a way to transfer them over.   Thanks

      Hello I bought my TV this year in China and I've moved to HK where I can access Netflix & Youtube etc etc, however, I'm unable to change the region settings on my TV as it only allows me to select China under the country list. Is there anyway that I can update the OS manually in order to region switch as the China apps are very limited..   Thankss
