I think your concern is irrelevant.

I have a 1TB drive, I am happy with it until I have accumulated to a certain number of recorded clip,  around 400 (I did not count with great care)   TV beginning to act weird.

First symptom is the time shift function not act correctly.  It doesn't give any error, just acted weird.

It returns to normal only if I delete some of the recording.   Then I repeat the experiment and recorded few more clips and it starts acting weird again.  So I am positive that the firmware can only handle ~400 tops.

New recording also fails, but it doesn't says out of space, just says error, cannot save (something like that)

Maybe it the number of files in a single directory that reach a maximum value.

Is it possible to move some of the 400 files to an other directory? Does it then works as expected?

I don't think you can create folder, or any thing similar, to separate the recorded clips.

So the only thing you can do is to delete some.  That's what I have done.

** I really hope that there is a detail list mode for the record clip listing.   The current layout with a picture is (1) painstakingly slow, esp when scrolling (2) show too few per page, (3) hard to find.     The picture for each clip is nice looking, but as it only take a snapshot at the early starting point (I guess it is at 1 sec or so), the result is a random picture of a commercial (at least in my country)  so it is helpless to spot anything I'm looking for.

But you could remove the HD from the LG tv (when it's off) and put it in a computer. There you can create a subdirectory and store some of the files in it.

Maybe the LG tv wil look into the subdirectories and you can still use them or it is a place to store older clips you don't want to remove.

I totally abandon the idea to mess around with the files after I tried (kind of hard) to find a way to play back those recorded files with my computers, but failed.    There are tutorial on the web (with conversion & decode), but I think it will only do for old firmware.  It doesn't work for me.     (just a side note, clips recorded by my PVR on the same channel play without any modification, even the subtitle as well as bi-lingual still selectable)

I will give a try on your suggestion some later time.   My wild guess is files moved into subdirectory won't be recognised, and the limitation is not the file system, but the limited memory.

per PeterV suggests, I move some recording to a sub-folder, LG TV happily ignors anything in sub-folder, and behaves well with less recorded clips.  

But I have to correct myself that the maximum number it can handle is only around 170 only (instead of what I posted previously of ~400)  beyond that, the time shift function sometimes work, and  jump back to real time from time to time (i.e. all shifts are gone)  The recorder sometimes save part of the show and terminates with an error., but occasionally it success.   TV never says anything like disk full or definitely an error with something specific (like too many clips etc) ,  just acted weird.    (my 1TB disk has only around 400MB data and only files saved by TV)

So my conclusion is too big a hard disk is pointless with buggy firmware.

As a side note: if you move back recorded clips back to lg_tv folder, it will be display again correctly.  So there is not an index file you have to worry about.   So in case you really want to keep something offline, just copy them to somewhere else.   But recorded clips only uses number as names, you cannot easily identify which is which.   The only thing you can rely on is the time stamp of the folder.  No names nor channel info.

I have a 4tb external drive with 405 folders, 393 of which are sub-folders containing over 3500 files, just fwiw...

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      One of the major trends in consumer electronics, the ‘personalized user experience’ is something LG TV owners get to enjoy every day thanks to the abundance of convenient, customizable features and lifestyle services accessible via LG’s webOS platform.
      Since its launch in 2014, webOS has continued to evolve, offering increased functionality, services and options with each new update and version release. The latest webOS UI makes 2021 and 2022 LG TVs the ultimate home entertainment hubs – able to provide an ever-growing number of lifestyle apps, easier access to recommendations with the newly launched Life’s Good Hub and seamless mobile integration with effortless content mirroring.

      Revamped to help users navigate the expansive list of services on offer, the new webOS Home Screen now includes the Life’s Good Hub section, where users can discover some of the latest lifestyle apps at the press of a button. The lifestyle section provides a curated selection of up to fifteen apps centered on improving a specific aspect of life at home, such as fitness, wellbeing or staying connected. A real time-saver, the new feature enables users to find services suited to their unique tastes and preferences, ‘handpicking’ the most relevant apps from the approximately 2,200 currently available* on the LG webOS platform.
      Another important consideration for today’s users is the mobile experience and cross-device compatibility. LG’s ThinQ app has been updated to make it easier to mirror content from mobile devices to LG TVs. Users will enjoy being able to switch from watching on their mobile to watching on the TV when playing content from a range of different sources, including major streaming services, LG Channels and LG Fitness.

      The new lifestyle content that LG continues to bring to the webOS platform shows that the company understands and appreciates the ways in which consumers’ needs and lifestyles have changed in recent times. Take RemoteMeeting, for example: an easy-to-use video conferencing solution designed with the growing ranks of remote workers – and those wanting to catch up with friends and family in other places – in mind. Setting up the app on LG TV is fast and simple as it doesn’t require connection to a laptop or PC. From August 5, users signing up to RemoteMeeting will receive a free, 6-month membership, no matter where in the world they call home.

      In an uncertain world, self-care is just as important as connecting with others, and for that LG’s latest TVs support apps such as Insight Timer. The popular meditation app is engineered to help users combat anxiety, stress and poor-quality sleep through an array of uplifting and relaxing content and wellness tools. LG 2021 and 2022 TV owners can enjoy Insight Timer free for 12-months, granting them access to 150,000 guided meditations, soothing music tracks and more.

      Fitness is a key component of achieving personal wellbeing, too, which is why LG’s latest TVs offer several apps that can help users turn their living rooms into private workout studios. 305 Fitness, which features invigorating dance workouts with music from a live DJ and popular subscription workout apps such as MaxPro, Fiit TV and Flexit, will be arriving later this year.

      Additionally, LG’s webOS 22-powered TVs will soon be welcoming the hotly-anticipated IDOLLIVE app. A dream come true for the world’s legions of K-pop fans, the app lets users stream a plethora of compelling K-pop content, including live performances, exclusive interviews and music videos, and offers subtitles in five different languages (English, Japanese, Indonesian, Mandarin and Thai).
      With an intuitive UI and a growing library of apps and services spanning entertainment, smart home management as well as personal growth and wellbeing, LG TVs with webOS continue to redefine the ‘personalized user experience’ and deliver a better life at home to consumers worldwide.

      Build Your First App for webOS TV
      Web apps are written using HTML with copious amounts of CSS and JavaScript for style and functionality. Any modern Web browser can deliver this type of apps to the user.  With webOS TV, web apps are elevated to the lofty title of a first class citizen - web apps on webOS TV are given access to the same hardware, and OS features that typically available to native apps.
       
      Web apps built for webOS TV are very similar to standard web apps. Like the standard web applications, you can create web apps for webOS TV using standards based web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Anyone with experience in building web applications can easily start developing web apps for webOS TV.
       
      Now, just create your app using the CLI.
      Run the webOS TV CLI.
       
      Create new app with Enyo bootplate.
      ares-generate -t moonstone-2014 first-app Now you can continue developing and testing your app.
       
      Edit ./first-app/appinfo.json file. Update "id" and "title" properties in appinfo.json file with text editor as below.
      {
          "id": "com.yourdomain.app.firstapp",
          "version": "0.0.1",
          "vendor": "My Company",
          "type": "web",
          "main": "index.html",
          "title": "singlepane",
          "icon": "icon.png",
          ...
      }
       
      Package your app from app directory. If app is packaged successfully, you can see the created .ipk file.
      ares-package first-app  
      Run the webOS TV Emulator.
       
      Install your app to emulator. Be sure to use the correct file name for your package.
      ares-install com.yourdomain.app.firstapp_0.0.1_all.ipk  
      Launch your app on emulator.
      ares-launch com.yourdomain.app.firstapp
