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.

      I finally updated the software on my TV, and now I have to force a reset whenever I want to turn it on. (Unplug for 60 seconds.) The TV will not turn on without a reset, from either the remote or the power button. Once it's on it responds normally to the remote.  It doesn't matter how long the TV's been turned off - when I want to turn it back on, I have to reset it.
      Has anyone else had similar problems?

      Hi LG
      When playing a video file that is 3840 x 2160 (UHD) in OLED55CX (4K), there is a small black bar at the top and bottom. Is the TV supposed to upscale automatically to its 4k resolution which is 4096 x 2160? How do I upscale it without picture being cut of?
      Regards,
      Anish

      Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?

      When I navigate to a website that streams  audio content, e.g. knkx.org, the audio stream is not played. Have tried several such sites and encountered the same lack of audio. All other audio is played normally. 
       
      Is there a setting I must select?

      I have just bought an OLED 48C14LB, and have mostly got to grips with the OS, except for the programme recording function.
      I tested this by recording the news on BBC1,  via 'Programme Scheduler' whilst watching live tv on ITV3.  All worked ok with the recording  playing back from the 128GB stick in 'USB 1'.
      Having since tried to record something else in the same way, I get an on screen message saying that the recording is about to take place, and I click on 'OK'.
      When the recording starts, the tv station that I am watching switches to the station that I want to record from, and when I switch back, I get a message saying that the recording I have set up is not possible if I change channels.
      Any help wil be much appreciated.

      Hi all, new TV owner, I bought the 55 inch UM7400 and have it connected to a Sonos Beam with two Play 1's for surround. I have a turntable plugged into the stereo RCA input of the TV to get audio through the soundbar which is excellent, only one problem - the TV obviously does not receive any picture signal and therefore switches itself off after about 20 minutes!
      I have emailed this problem to LG but I find I have to explain the problem to every tech that replies with a basic menu fix (no, changing the Deep Colour setting is not going to fix this problem...!) All the settings that relate to timer/screensaver/energy saving so not seem to be affecting this.
      Does anyone else have a similar setup (turntable>TV>soundbar) and have a fix to keep the TV from going to sleep?
      Cheers!
