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.

      Sling TV is my default app on my LG TV.   Everything  was working fine until today.  Now when I hit the HOME button on the remote, the TV correctly returns to the HOME page, but then immediately re-launches Sling TV before I have an opportunity to select a different app (for example, Netflix).   This cycle repeats itself every time I enter HOME while in the Sling TV app.  The only way I can return to HOME without Sling TV automatically relaunching is to manually select a different input (e.g., HDMI one or LIVE Team), and then enter HOME and it will correctly stay in HOME until another app is selected.  I've tried resetting the TV  and I've tried deleting/adding Sling TV.  I have the latest WebOS update.  This may have started after downloading a recent Sling TV app?  Not sure.  Any suggestions appreciated.

      I just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.

      Found multiplex application that use letsencrypt stop working in 30 September 2021 on LG WebOS 3.5. This appear to be wide spread multiplex version of WEBOS.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.

      Hello,
       
      I am trying to watch NBA matches at my TV, and i have nba pass subsrciption. It appears that my country is not eligible and there is no nba app at the lg store.
      When i login to my account through the webos broswer , when i try to watch a game, i get the message "download the app", and the link takes me to other apple store.
      I tried to watch through airplay (either from my macbook or my iphone), but when i connect to airplay, the screen gets black. I guess that is something with nba sharing rights etc, because with other apps it works fine.
       
      has anybody find any solution to this?

      Some time ago after an update to my TV, whenever I switch it on it has an annoying strip across the bottom of the screen, The strip features buttons for various terrestrial channels and also for streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
      Since I have no use for this strip whatsoever, the first thing that I do is to close it down. I have to wait about 5 seconds though. During that time the tv won't respond to any input other than the volume control.
      After the 5 seconds is up I am able to close it down and then for example, change the channel I want. At that point all's good until next time I switch on the tv when I have to go through the same rigmarole.
      Can anyone here please tell me that it's possible to disable this thing? I've looked but can find no means of disabling it.
      Thanks,
      Orson
