recordings on WebOS tv failing with "unable to load"


Peter Johnson

Question

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.

The message "Cable/broadcast service changed programming" looks like your TV is using information from the broadcaster that is buggy.

I don't have terrestrial TV any more so I can't look at the options but can you make recordings using start time and end time without using the electronic guide?

Good luck,

Peter

Possibly, but in that case it would go wrong for everyone recording from Freeview. (and It happens with shows from different broadcasters)

Yes, the TV does have that facility. 

I'll try that, although it would not be very practical to use- like programming a VCR in the 80s. :)

This guesswork wouldn't be necessary if LG support could tell us what the error message means in practice.

I remember I tried using this function on the public broadcaster in my country but the results were not good enough. The first recording always went right, but next recordings of a serie didn't work most of the time. I gave up rather quickly.

Even on a VCR in the 80's this didn't work reliable :-)

YMMV

      Hi.
      When Im playing a movie in an app on my LG OLED TV the screen is turned off after 15 minutter and only showing for the lack of other words its "digital fireworks» and the text "Turn on screen by pressing any button on remote except power button».
      Its really annoying. 
      Every power/eco mode is off and no timer is active?
      Anyone?

      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?

      I have recently shifted from UAE to India. I have 55" LG 3D smart TV model no. 55UB8301. My problem is 1. I can not change country from UAE to India in settings -Country option because India is not available in the list.
      2. I can not download any app which are normally available in Indian smart TVs like Hotstar/Sonyliv/Amazon prime etc.
      3. In screen mirroring option using my Android phone, I can play any video stream from mobile to smart TV BUT only Amazon prime videos are not played. 
      Can anyone help me for above issues...?

      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.

      Dear all,
      I really need to verify my understanding on how the whole Record / Play and Live TV works.
      I own  a brand new OLED 65GX6LA TV of which I am very satisfied with picture quality and all but...
      I have noticed that when I am watching a program that I am recording and use Time machine to go back to some past bits, when the record has finished I am kicked out of my viewing and I need to go back to the list of recordings to start again and then I need to look for the place where I was. Additionally I can't record a program from the satellite tuner and watch from the terrestrial Tuner (or viceversa) even though they are separate tuners.
      To me it looks that the current Record / Play and Pause Live TV functionality has been implemented using a single memory buffer which doesn't allow any of the above.
      Is my assumption correct or is there anything that I haven't done in my set up that makes it so limiting?
      Many thanks,  Nic.
