[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.

    • Feature Requests - Who uses Live TV anymore?

      Please give us the option to remove Live TV from the Launcher and Home Menu, "Today" from the Home menu, and to auto-launch the last running app (like if you were watching Hulu when you turned off the TV.   I don't have cable and all of these features are just a nuisance to me.  Turning on my tv with the "No signal" or "Scrambled" message because I don't have any live channels is also annoying and looks very unpolished for a $5k TV...   Thanks!

    • Question: Glitchy recordings from USB disk

      Hi, I've recently purchased a LG 43UK6300PLB, which by and large has been excellent! But I'm having problems with recording to USB. So far I've tried a 500GB drive I had spare, but its probably 7-8 years old, and I've tried an SSD as well. Tried the 500GB in an older USB2 external caddy and in a more recent USB3, and the SSD in the USB3. Both were formatted to NTFS. When I come to watch the recording, I get what looks like signal breakup where I might lose a second or so of the recording. Its not constant either, there might be a 10 second period where the quality is really bad and broken, and then maybe a minute of it being OK. I've tried the USB3 caddy with external 5V power added in too, 2A supply. Same problem happens if I pause live TV, and then unpause it a little later. Normal TV picture quality is fine, I've got good signal here and never see this on normal viewing. Wondered if anyone had suggestions? Is it worth trying a USB stick instead? Running out of ideas with this one. Thanks

    • Question: Lg webos media player subtitles

      Hi, i have webos 4.0 on my tv. LG media player  has lowest subtitle position "-2", but i would like them even lower (in black bars when letterbox movie is played). Is there a way or tweak to do that? I noticed that position -2 is higher in webos 4.0 compared to webos 3.5 Unfortunately kodi is not for webos, Is there other media player for webos that plays video files from usb? i cant find none.

      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.
