[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.

      Hello,
       
      has someone used Symbolic Links with an external USB GPUID NTFS formatted disc? They write, they support NTFS on external drives, but with the tested hdd's it doesn't work. accessing normal files works finde, but using symbolic links doesnst show any file.
      I tryied on OLED65C9 with WD Elements 4TB GPT NTFS and WD Black_P10 5TB GPT NTFS.
       
      Thank you and best regards

      Hi all!
       
       
      I have a LG 42LB630V, with the latest firmware installed.
       
      I want to know if it is possible to change the audio language, for a mkv file that has more than an audio language and how to add external subtitles. Those embeded in mkv files are running ok.
       
      Thank you, 
      Cipria

      I have a 55UH650V Smart TV Which i'm lovin...  But I can't seem to get the live tv pause to work with a USB drive..   I bought a 64GB USB 3.0 drive which works for general program recording and playing music, picture files on the TV etc... But when I try to pause live tv it says it cant work with this drive choose another?
       
      Is there anywhere that specifically advises on USB spec for this function?
       
      Kinda think it should be in the manual but i cant find it...

      Hi, I have an LG WebOS Smart TV that after the last firmware update the Wi-Fi Connection stop working properly. When I try to connect to my network, it will instantly disconnect or it will freeze my TV.
      Model: LG 55UF6450-UA (bought it on November 2015)
      Firmware: 03.16.00
      Also, I don't know if it is relevant but my TV is a US version that now I have it with me in Costa Rica, Central America.
      I've tried everything posted on the internet and forums:
      - Connecting to my cellphones hotspot (worked for about 5 min the first time I try it and then stop working and would work again when I tried to reconnect).
      - Change the DNS to google's DNS. (Once I was able to do it but didn't fix the issue, and also first I need to be able to connect to a network for the TV to enable the option for changing manually to static ip's).
      - Doing factory reset won't fix it.
      - Changing the Country/Region/Time zone won't fix it.
      - Changing to manual time won't fix it.
      - Can't do the downgrade procedure posted on this forum for two reasons: because you need to be able to connect to the wifi or via ethernet and it isn't working, and also I can't find an older versión of my firmware.
      I am pretty sure that I need to downgrade or even just do a fresh installation of the actual the firmware, but I can't find the right way to do it. Maybe with an LG service remote? but again, I need to first get on my hands a working firmware version for my TV right?
      Any recommendations?

      I hope LG check this forum.
      Powerful Browser App like Google Chrome that is able to play videos of Amazon Prime, the default browser  is like Kids play, taking ages to load. Able to control streaming quality in apps like Prime Video, Hotstar, NetFlix, Sunnxt etc., i do not understand how hard for any developer to put this feature in app, I think  WebOS SDK expose this to developer to provide this feature. File Explorer that allow us to store data in TV Wifi file Transfer App like ShareIT(Android) More Apps(MX Player, Jio Tv, Jio Cinema, Airtel Xtreme,  VLC Player etc.....)... i feel the most apps available in the content store are crap and useless  Actually i did not do much research before purchasing UK6360PTE TV, I never expected this much difference from Android TV, i do not know how LG even thinking to compete with this WebOS , because people are getting intelligent and do research before purchase of a TV. they definitely find Android TVs more feature rich.

      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.
