[Feature Request] File Manager and...

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Question: Player problem

      I used to cast from ace stream directly to my UJ6300 and I had no problems until a few days ago when the TV got an update for WebOS 3.7 I think. Now whenever I try to cast to the TV it just shows a black screen on the "Web App Viewer" app, I was wondering if maybe I could set a different player as default player when streaming from my phone instead of the Web App Viewer, as when I play from other sources it starts the "Photo&Video" player.  Otherwise I think I would have to downgrade the OS to the previous stable version.  Anyone else having this problem?

    • Network connection issues. LG Content store doesn't connect.

      I did a refresh of my LG TV 3 days ago. Sold the old LG 47" 3D LED TV and bought new 55" LG Super UltraHD TV with WebOS. I believe, the biggest con of this new TV is WebOS. Its totally frustrating. Sorry for WebOS fans. It isn't that smart and functional they way it looks. The problem I having since 3 days and being a network engineer, I am unable to solve a network issue myself which is even more frustrating for me. Ok, let me explain the issue. The TV when installed was connected to LAN cable to my router which has direct internet connection. The TV works and none of the apps were working. Basically TV wasn't able to connect to internet via apps. If i open web browser, it was working fine with all webpages showing correctly. I'll skip the part of contacting LG support which was useless. All troubleshooting steps like resetting, formatting, changing time zone, location, region was done but no luck. Finally I connected the TV via mobile hotspot and it just worked which gave me the clue that some ports are being blocked by my ISP or router. My internet setup is this way. Internet cable from ISP -> ISP Modem (can do NAT and work as router) - WiFi Router (NAT, DHCP, etc) -> all LAN clients. I put my LG TV in DMZ, opened all ports, etc but no luck. Then I converted my ISP modem as router and connected the LG TV directly to it and it started working..!!! My WiFi Router is TP-Link Archer C7 and I was using stock firmware. Thought it was creating issues and I installed DD-WRT, Open-WRT but no luck at all. The apps which were installed in TV when TV was connected directly to modem are still working fine. Youtube, Plex, Netflix, etc all are working but when I open LG Content Store, it just refuses to load. I am not sure what wrong my TP-Link router is doing. There is something wrong with the LG TV content store. If it requires to open ports, then I would like to know which ones. Sorry for the long port, may be my frustration of 3 days with no luck.!!

    • Question: Connect TV to server via FTP

      Hi, I will try to make it short. I have a server abroad (Europe) which I use to upload/download with my family. This server also stores my film collection. I have moved to the US and the server remains in Europe. Therefore I am trying to be able to stream a movie in the US from the server in Europe via my LG smart TV (LG Oled 55 B7A). When I go on the web interface of the server on my tv to access a movie, it tells me I cant download from there. How can I stream (not download, just stream) a movie on my TV from my server located in Europe? Seems simple (in principle) but can't find a way. Thank you

      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.
