Connecting USB blu-ray drive to TV


LukeH

Question

Hi all,

I'm new here as I just got my LG webos tv and a USB blu-ray drive also LG. Sorry if this is the wrong part of forum.

The TV is a  with WebOS 2.0 and the blu-ray is

Since the USB blu-ray drive has a "tv mode" and both it and the TV are LG I had high hopes that they will work together and I will be able to see disks by connecting it directly to the TV.

If I connect them as such it seems I can only see the contents of the disks in smart-share as any other USB drive (regardless if I enter tv-mode) but UNLESS is an original (protected?) disk in which case the drive appears empty (video disks as one made for me by a contracted photographer work as such). I only tested it with DVDs as I don't have any blu-ray yet. If I enter "tv mode" on the usb unit the TV shows an usb connection error message yet it still works from smart-share as I sayed...not at home now to give you the exact message but it sayed to remove and try reconnect it.

Can you please tell me if there is any solution to see original disks in such setup. Anything to get over that connection error? Or maybe an webos media player app capable to see usb connected optical drives?...yet I can't find any myself.

Thanks,

Luke

      Model: 42UB700T-TH version 03.02.25. Has not got any software update since  3-4 Years - What a mess...…
      This TV is just a random box now... Once purchased this model - new version from LG was introduced; making this just a playing box...
      None of the recent OTT's can be installed..
      We need a fix or else some solution to it.
      Its really a disheartening experience after being loyal to this brand in any appliance we purchase.

      Hi I have a LG Smart TV (OLED55B16LA) and started using the recording feature.
      I would like to replace the USB HDD with a bigger one, so I have copied all the files from the old one to the new one.
      But when I put the new one in the TV it does not recognise it as a recording, it lets me browse the content. but of course being scrambled it is pointless.
      Is it possible to move all the recordings to a different disk and use it in the same TV?
      Cheers

      I am recording videos to 
      link hidden, please login to view NAS. During the recording I like to watch the video (still recording).  The Photo and Video App on webOS does not show the file unless the recording has terminated. Is there a possibility to watch videos in webOS while it get recorded? Joseph
