Make 2017 TV sets that have latest USB ports, at least 3.0 so it is possible to find a compatible USB HDD WebOS will work properly with.
Install sufficient memory to run WebOS Apps without constant restarts or inform customers apps may not work properly.
Put a clearly accessible filer by Genre choice from the main program guide (something Toshiba TV and others have had for many years on their EPG's). Going out of the main EPG into the limited snapshot guide then finding the sort by Genre option is clunky. A zoom function on the main EPG to show more than just a couple of hours ahead would be ideal as well. Even my £70 supermarket own brand TV can manage these simple functions so come on LG match up.

I am trying to record terrestrial digital programs from my 2016 LG webosTV to a USB stick- if I set up a few programs to record, a few work, but after a day or two it will fail. and from that point all will fail.
The TV does still try to record, as I can see it pop up a notification if I am watching, but nothing is recorded. (No error message is shown then.)
If I look at the "scheduled recordings" page, it shows an error, and "Unable to load" for the start and end time of the failed show.
If I go to "recording history" for that show, I see a message saying "incomplete, Cable/broadcast service changed programming" but that can't be the case for so many different shows,
There is plenty of space on the USB stick.
I have tried LG support, but they can't tell me what the message means, and suggest returning the TV for repair.
As a side note: I don't usually watch terrestrial TV through the television- we still use Sky (which is why I want to get this working!) I only say that in case it was a reason that show schedule information is not being updated.
Any help or suggestions gratefully received.
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?
