TimeMachine II on USA televisions.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone in the USA have time machine 2 on their 2014 smarttv?  I do not have it in my menus and want to record over the air television.  LG claims it's unavailable in the US because of anti piracy laws but I think that's BS.  I have a PVR which records football games every weekend from OTA antenna.

I also have LB650V Model, you have to go to Settings>General>Location. Then you can try change it to spain and it will work.

Excuse me and thank you for helping but I do not have a spain or any other EU country.  My choices on this TV are:  USA, Canada, Mexico and Other.  I put it on "Other" and restarted the TV but it did not show any time machine functions.  Do you have any other suggestion please?

The lg country codes are evidently hard wired in when shipped in different regions. I've been trying the same just to get Netflix which is t technically available in new Zealand, and no matter what I try I'm still restricted to countries in this vicinity. As far as my reading goes there really is no way to change the actual region code within the set. Sad, stupid, but true. Thanks LG.

    • Record video file

      So, insert a USB stick into the USB port and start recording on the TV. After finishing, eject and mute USB on a second tv. The video file is not recognized and can not be seen on this TV. The LG TV is with 3.5 and 2.0 second web-os. Thanks LG, I think I will look for a Samsung.

    • LG Smart TV Time Machine transfer file to HDD?

      I have recorded files from my LG Smart TV Time Machine that I would like to transfer to a hard drive. But there isn't an option for dragging the files into the hard drive.   The shows that I recorded aren't TV shows but instead are personal old recorded videos (like are 10+ years old) from an old camcorder that used a miniDV tape. And I used Time Machine's recording feature to turn it into a digital file so the tapes could be stored digitally.   Right now the recordings are in the TV. And I have my HDD plugged in. If only there was a way to transfer them over.   Thanks

    • Record "copy protected" tv show

      I have a regular subscription with a CAM and a smart card, still the TV does not allow me to record any of my subscription channels presenting a message stating it is not possible to record "copy protected" content. This makes not sense, I have clearly paid to be able to watch them; my cheap set-top boxes, allow this with no problem. Is there a way around this limitation?
