I use Enigma2 for watching TV, recording etc.
Is WebOS an alternative?
Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
NAS instead of USB HDD.
I have just got a new OLED B7 TV and would like to know if I can use my old USB HD that I was using with my old LED LG TV that was using the LG time machine 2.
When I plug the USB HD into the new B7 TV it says I need to format it. I see the new TV's need a NTFS drive and on the old LED TV it was using a linux system. Is all lost are any way to view the old data on the new OLED TV ?
Make 2017 TV sets that have latest USB ports, at least 3.0 so it is possible to find a compatible USB HDD WebOS will work properly with.
Install sufficient memory to run WebOS Apps without constant restarts or inform customers apps may not work properly.
Put a clearly accessible filer by Genre choice from the main program guide (something Toshiba TV and others have had for many years on their EPG's). Going out of the main EPG into the limited snapshot guide then finding the sort by Genre option is clunky. A zoom function on the main EPG to show more than just a couple of hours ahead would be ideal as well. Even my £70 supermarket own brand TV can manage these simple functions so come on LG match up.

I am trying to record terrestrial digital programs from my 2016 LG webosTV to a USB stick- if I set up a few programs to record, a few work, but after a day or two it will fail. and from that point all will fail.
The TV does still try to record, as I can see it pop up a notification if I am watching, but nothing is recorded. (No error message is shown then.)
If I look at the "scheduled recordings" page, it shows an error, and "Unable to load" for the start and end time of the failed show.
If I go to "recording history" for that show, I see a message saying "incomplete, Cable/broadcast service changed programming" but that can't be the case for so many different shows,
There is plenty of space on the USB stick.
I have tried LG support, but they can't tell me what the message means, and suggest returning the TV for repair.
As a side note: I don't usually watch terrestrial TV through the television- we still use Sky (which is why I want to get this working!) I only say that in case it was a reason that show schedule information is not being updated.
Any help or suggestions gratefully received.
