I have been thinking would it be possible to make a HDMI switch that connects to the TV (maybe via USB to control it), the TV knows it's a switch and add virtual HDMI's and by selecting one of the virtual HDMI's is tell the switch to select the correct port.
If I understand correctly, currently (WebOS 4.0), it's possible to record TV shows on the flash drive only. Could you implement recording on the network share (Windows share, samba or similar)? I have small NAS so it would be great if I could use it's storage for this purpose. Regards, Jaroslav
I'm not getting any audio from the apps via the HDMI via ARC connection to my receiver. This occurred two weeks ago and was unable to resolve it, but ironically there was new firmware released that same day for my B6 (3/31/17) and this fixed the issue. However, now I again can't get it working after a TV reset and tinkering with the audio settings again. I tried to load the firmware again, but it appears this is not possible to forceable load the same firmware.
Why is my recording cut short. I record to a 64gb Sandisk Ultra Flash Drive that is empty, so there is plenty of space. I select the finish time as program end, and yet my recording stops before the program end.
I would like to be able to access my network drives without using DLNA. It should look just like a USB drive.

I have just got a new OLED B7 TV and would like to know if I can use my old USB HD that I was using with my old LED LG TV that was using the LG time machine 2.
When I plug the USB HD into the new B7 TV it says I need to format it. I see the new TV's need a NTFS drive and on the old LED TV it was using a linux system. Is all lost are any way to view the old data on the new OLED TV ?
What was the possible reason to implement the condition so there has to be at least 40 GB of free HD space to be able just to start the recording??
I made 2 partitions on my 160 GB hard disk - the first one of 40 GB assigned to Time Shift/Recording and the second one to store the movies - and now I cannot anymore start the immediate recording because it says 'There must be minimum 40 GB of free space to start the recording'!!
My question #01 is: Why in the h... would I've been forced to have the free space to store hours and hours of the recorded video if I want to record just a short TV show????
There, hovewer, is a (silly) workaround:
1. Just watch the show you want to record
2. After the show ends, rewind it back a few minutes before it began (Live Playback has obviously to be turned on)
3. Press RECORD and immediately after press STOP (and choose to save the content - that will save everything from the point where you rewound to present time)
4. Open Time Shift and start the newly recorded video
5. FF to the exact start of the show and press PAUSE
6. Use the mouse to press the arrow to open some additional commands and choose Save Selection (the in-point will be marked with A)
7. FF the video to the exact end of the show and press PAUSE
8. Press Save Selection one more time at the out-point to cut-out everything but the selected part of the video
This workaround allows you to 'record' even if you have less than 40 GB of free HD space, but that way the max. length of saved video is 1 h 30 min (because Live Playback saves only last one and a half hour).
My question #02 is: How it is supposed to fill the last 40 GB of the hard disk space if you can't even start the recording when you have 'only' 39.9 GB of free space????
The 1 h 30 min of Live recording can't 'eat' those 40 GB even if we are watching the maximum rate 1080i TV show so those 40 GB are not intended to be used by Live recorder. The only way to fill the last 40 GB of HD space seems to be in the case of recording for hours and hours!?
