USB 3.0 vs. LG Smart TV


WeWinQa

Question

Hello LGuys,

 

I've just bought this LG 42" LB70 TV and I am unable to play anything from my USB 3.0 drives. It's just simple USB 3.0 key with 16GB capacity. The TV recognize the USB device and is also able to show the content. But as soon as you push play on any of the file (doesn't matter whether that's .AVI or .MP4), the middle circle strat rolling and per TV the USB disconnects itself with the TV saying that I should consider safe disconecting next time . That's actually nice warning however in this paricular case, I have not disconnected anything. So my question is - how to make the files played on my tv from the 16gb USB 3.0 drive?

 

TV model: LG 42" LB70 ()

WebOS:    04.32.20

 

USB drive: A-Data C103 16GB USB 3.0 ()

A-Data DashDrive UV128 16GB USB 3.0 (

)

 

Notes:

I've tried formatting A-Data C103 16GB USB 3.0 to FAT32 and NTFS both with no result.

The USB 2.0 devices work just fine.

I already returned one TV as I thought I had bought the defective piece, however this new one (2nd one) has the same issue as well.

 

Please help. I am out of ideas.

 

Veronika

Hi Veronika,

i think that the issue can be due the size of the USB key, 16 GB.

 

As the tv expect and uses USB 3.0 port for HDD to get Live TV extra functionalities like pause, replay, etc..

it need 40GB of free space to do that and may be then refuse and disconnect the key.

I think this is a bug of WebOS and not a defective piece.

 

Hope to help,

Stefano

      Hi LG
      When playing a video file that is 3840 x 2160 (UHD) in OLED55CX (4K), there is a small black bar at the top and bottom. Is the TV supposed to upscale automatically to its 4k resolution which is 4096 x 2160? How do I upscale it without picture being cut of?
      Regards,
      Anish

      Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?

      When I navigate to a website that streams  audio content, e.g. knkx.org, the audio stream is not played. Have tried several such sites and encountered the same lack of audio. All other audio is played normally. 
       
      Is there a setting I must select?
