[Feature Request] File Manager and...

8 posts in this topic

Hi to all.

I recently purchased a lg tv with web os. On the old TV was using an external media player (wd live tv). Now I wanted to directly connect the USB disk to the TV.

Unfortunately, I can not do it, because, to my regret, the web os does not have a file manager So I can not copy, move, or do anything on the external drive, no do not connect it to the PC first.

I ask is you are putting a file manager, so you can manage files between USB devices connected.

In addition to, if possible, add an icon to each file (movie) already seen.

What do you think

Yes, the web OS definitely needs a simple, easy-to-use file manager.

 

I've been trying to copy a screenshot taken on my LG Smart TV to a USB drive, so that I could upload it.  Unfortunately, the only way I've found to do this is by opening the file in the LG Photo Edit program, and then saving it to the drive - and this is less than optimal since the screenshot comes across as a small clip on a black screen. 

 

The Smart Share application apparently doesn't allow you to share files from the TV onto a USB (or any other) drive.  That's not very smart.

Our tv's need a good file manager. I don't understand the use of an OS, if you can't do simple things like copy delete etc.

Please add this feature in the next update.

      While in the Satellite mode channel moving works as expected, in the Antenna mode the Move command performs 'swap' rather than 'move'. Example:
       
      Satellite mode:
      1. Ch 1     2. Ch 2
      3. Ch 3     4. Ch 4
      5. Ch 5     6. Ch 6
      7. Ch 7     8. Ch 8
       
      After moving 5 to 2:
       
      1. Ch 1     2. Ch 5
      3. Ch 2     4. Ch 3
      5. Ch 4     6. Ch 6
      7. Ch 7     8. Ch 8
      As expected.
       
      Antenna mode:
      1. Ch 1     2. Ch 2
      3. Ch 3     4. Ch 4
      5. Ch 5     6. Ch 6
      7. Ch 7     8. Ch 8
       
      After moving 5 to 2:
       
      1. Ch 1     2. Ch 5
      3. Ch 3     4. Ch 4
      5. Ch 2     6. Ch 6
      7. Ch 7     8. Ch 8
      Wrong!
       
      Can anyone confirm the behavior?
       
      It is very frustrating to organize the channels when 'swap' is performed instead of 'move'. Moving just one single channel requires multiple swaps so the Move command for sure has to behave as in the Satellite mode.
