Scheduled Recording to USB HDD when TV in Standby Mode not working


cloudstardust5

Question

I have a LG 55UH615T SmartTV.

 

1. I setup a few scheduled recordings from the digital TV (via Guide),

2. I have connected a USB HDD to the TV and

3. I then set the TV to standby (i.e. I switch off the TV but the power to the TV is still on).

4. Also, I disabled the HDD Eco mode to ensure the HDD don't go to sleep.

 

However, the TV doesn't record when the TV is on standby mode. Can anybody tell me how I can record when the TV is on standby mode? Can anybody tell me how I can record when the TV is on standby mode?

I have found a workaround to my problem.

 

I discovered that when you switch on the main power supply of the TV to standby mode, the scheduled recording don't work.

 

However, if you switch on the TV for a minute and then switch it off to standby mode, the scheduled recording works!

 

It seems when you power on the TV to standby mode, it doesn't supply power to the attached USB HDD or the TV don't know there is a USB HDD drive attached. But if you switch on the TV, it starts to supply power to the USB HDD or it recognises that USB HDD is attached. So, even when you switch off the TV to standby mode, the USB HDD is still supplied with power or recognised by the TV. As such, the scheduled recording works.

 

This is a bug of the webOS I think. Hopefully, LG fix it soon!

I have a 49UH651 with webos 3.0

I thought that recording from the schedule was not working when it actually was!

The problem was that when I switched on the tv and went to webos/recordings I saw a screen that said that there were none!

What is happening is that the tv takes a long time to acknowledge the disks existence. More than a minute.

You can see this when you look at the connections list. The disk is missing.

However when you go straight to webos/recordings it does not mention that it is still waiting for the disk, so you assume that the recording has not been made!

I wonder how many support calls this simple user interface oversight has caused!

I'm having this issue too, but it's definitely not that the hard drive has not been found as it appears in the list of devices. The most annoying thing is that it seems to be intermittent, sometimes it works, more often it doesn't. Sometimes when it doesn't work, it 'forgets' the whole series, other times it is still there showing I have selected it to record, it just doesn't.

I do feel it's a power management issue, but really annoying that you basically have to be at home to make sure it's awake and recording! Defeats the object.  I haven't yet tried a new hard drive, but I'm reluctant to as it seems others are having the same issue. This was one of the main reasons I bought a smart TV so I'm very frustrated.

I have exactly the same issue with my LG 43UJ630V purchased in August this year.  Firstly very disappointed with the WebOS, lack of sufficient internal memory to run the 'apps' properly without constant restarts to 'free up memory' - no excuse for this really given memory is so cheap now. Anyway another major disappointment is the total inability of these sets to use USB Flash drives - LG claim this is due to the read/write limitation of said devices which is quickly exhausted by recording in HD/ 4k. Well all I can say is my six years old Toshibal  could manage this faultlessly . The LG however sometimes records OK then other times the recording simply stops after a few seconds.  Don't know if this is a 'power' issue or the almost new flash drive is now 'worn out' but whatever LG should either insure their products do what the advertising says or fix the problem. Concerning the 'restarting to free memory error' I did manage to get a call eventually from LG support tech who just stated these TV's are not like computers and cannot be expected to run their Smart TV Apps! Er, excuse me this was promised and is why I purchased the damn thing.

      When I try to go to a TV programme via the remote control voice option, the TV tries to look up the channel on the app I'm on, instead of going straight to the TV channel on the antenna. This used to work without any problems up until a couple of days ago. Any help appreciated.

      Good afternoon,
      I have a 49UB850V-ZD smart TV and has the issues below. Can't understand if its a software issue or components issues:
      1. Can't reset using meniu. I can access the meniu, I inserted pin 0000 and if I try to click Confirm it just flashes the button with no success. If I click Cancel then the meniu closes
      2. The Live TV channels are not working. There is no issue with the provider. It just not plays any channel
      3. If I connect the usb or hard-disk driver to play some movies I can navigate thru folder but I can t play any
      4. When I connect to Netflix or youtube I can navigate but if i try to play it does not load.
      5. The remote TV does not work anymore -> Only the Power Off/On button
      6. I have a magic remote TV for LG and works to navigate with the indicator
      7. The button of the TV (under the TV led) works only to open the TV -> the menu does not work anymore
      8. In the advanced menu, the Channel settings is not active among other options that are disabled. 
      9. When I try to access the LG STORE it says: loading unsuccessful (82) because the hour of the TV is not the correct one. I tryed to change time to something different and also changed location and removed the location. This change did not had any effect 
      What do you think? What do I need to do?

      Being an environmentally conscious company means looking deep into all business processes and putting the utmost effort into transforming, both externally and internally, from the supply chain to the organizational culture. In other words, LG aims to be an environmentally sustainable business, calling for specific and tangible actions with the three environmental ESG initiatives outlined in its BETTER LIFE PLAN 2030.

      The initiatives mark a paradigm shift towards adopting tangible, specific and measurable actions for a better, cleaner and greener environment. Part two of the Better Life story series, this article looks at the environmental action plans LG has established and the goals it is working hard to achieve.

      According to research, the average temperature on
      link hidden, please login to view (2.2 degrees Fahrenheit) since pre-industrial times. Responding to the urgency of climate change, LG remains steadfastly committed to attaining carbon neutrality, and to converting entirely to renewable energy in the long term. Its dedication to both goals can already be seen in the energy-efficient technologies applied at LG Smart Park in Changwon, South Korea. Exercising immediate change for its carbon initiative, LG is converting to more efficient operational processes and applying energy-efficient technologies across all of its production plants. LG Smart Park, the company’s revolutionary production facility, deploys next-generation manufacturing innovations to simultaneously achieve higher production efficiency and enhanced sustainability. The manufacturing hub has increased productivity by 20 percent and reduced the cost of defective-product returns by 80 percent. Moreover, LG Smart Park has reduced greenhouse gas emissions and boosted energy efficiency per unit by 30 percent compared to the previous factory.

      LG is looking to change the status quo of end-of-lifecycle management by using eco-friendly materials, streamlining manufacturing processes and turning discarded materials into ‘new’ resources, with the aim of creating a circular economy.
      The reducing, recovering, recycling and reusing of materials are all very important in a circular economy. LG operates a free e-waste retrieval service in 52 countries and aims to collect an accumulated total of over eight million tons of used appliances from 2006 to 2030. As for recycling, LG is improving its existing processes to achieve a higher recycling rate, with the end goal of hitting 95 percent by 2030. As part of this, the company’s Chilseo Recycling Center (CRC) situated in Hamyang, South Korea, plans to replace the compressor and old equipment by the latter half of the year. Furthermore, LG recently invited its employees to come together in the collective journey towards circularity by using fewer disposable paper cups at work.

      A global leader in consumer electronics, LG is dedicated to helping consumers realize a more sustainable lifestyle. This is why the company is applying eco-friendly technologies to all newly developed products, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint and resource recirculation.
      By 2030, LG plans to have reduced total carbon emissions from the product-usage stage by 20 percent. It also projects that, from 2021 to 2030, it will have used an accumulated total of six hundred thousand tons of recycled plastics in the production of new home appliances. In the future, the company will be able to offer products that are even more energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable than its current crop of models, helping consumers to reduce their monthly energy bills, achieve a more sustainable household and enjoy the best version of the Better Life LG aims to provide.

      For more on how LG is embracing inclusivity, sustainability and diversity in all that it does, stay tuned for the third and final Better Life story, coming soon to Beyond News.

      I have a couple of LG OLEDs in shared spaces, with external speakers, one via optical and the other via analog jack (confusingly named headphones). Whenever bluetooth headphones are used and then disconnected, the TV reverts to "internal" terrible audio. For non-technical people this is permanent. Do I have to train everyone to select the device from the long list or can I set a default?
