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 am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      Hi,
      I have an LG OLED55B7A that has been rebooting randomly ever since I updated it to webOS 6.00.05 about 6 months ago.  I have noted there is a new webOS version 6.00.20 available.   Has anyone here had the same rebooting problem, and if so, did the latest webOS correct the issue?
      In general, my setup has the LG tv doing as little as possible - it is simply a display for my Roku box via my AVR, as the TV's interface and apps slowly became completely unusable about a year after purchase.  So, no ethernet, no WiFi, all services turned off, etc., and this helped with all of the performance issues, except the rebooting. 
       
      @LG tv if you ever read this - you have done a TERRIBLE job of managing the software on these TVs.  webOS started off as a real alternative to all of the external set top boxes, but now, I will *never* *ever* buy another LG TV again, and I tell everyone I know to avoid them.  Worst product management in the consumer electronics industry in the past 10 years.
      Thanks fellow sufferers for any tips.

      We have two LG OLED TVs. WebOS appears differently on each. And we are able to download the Paramount+ app on one TV, but not on the other.
      OLED65C7P (older) running software version 6.00.25
      WebOS TV Version 3.9.0-62709
      Does not allow the Paramount+ app to be installed
      OLED65C9PUA (newer) running software version 5.10.25
      WebOS TV Version 4.9.3-5340808
      Allows the Paramount+ app to be installed
      How can we get WebOS to appear the same on both TVs?

      Doorway to Top-notch Programming with
      Intuitive Controls and Tailored Viewing Recommendations

      SEOUL, Oct. 12, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) will substantially expand the availability of content streaming options for third-party TVs running its proprietary webOS platform. With the firmware update now rolling out, viewers with webOS TVs can enjoy an enriched viewing experience with even more popular services to choose from.1
      To expand access to its popular TV platform to more consumers worldwide and strengthen its presence in the TV industry, LG made its advanced webOS platform available to other TV brands starting this year. As both a manufacturer as well as an operating system developer, LG is now better able to deliver its vision for an easier, more streamlined content viewing experience to a wider audience.
      From September through the end of this year, support will be added for a number of premium content services, including Disney+, Vudu, Pandora, HBO Max and SLING TV.2 Disney+, which is quickly becoming a global favorite, will be available on TVs running webOS in every market where the service is currently offered.3
      Disney+ is packed with family-friendly content ranging from beloved classics to original feature-length films, shows and documentaries from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. Disney+ is the exclusive home of Marvel Studios’ critically and commercially acclaimed original series including WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki and its first animated series What If…?. Additional notable original programs on Disney+ this year include Billie Eilish’s cinematic concert experience Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, Dug Days, a new series based on the 2009 Disney and Pixar hit film Up and the upcoming The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure premiering on December 29.
      Customers of Vudu on webOS-powered TVs will be able to enjoy over 10,000 free feature films without a subscription, as well as rent or buy the latest movies and TV shows.4 Vudu’s early access to new movies allows the service to offer many titles in 4K Ultra HD with support for Dolby image and audio enhancing technologies.
      And on most TVs running webOS, LG’s popular Magic Remote enhances the exceptional convenience and usability of LG’s platform. With its point-and-click interface and intuitive controls, the user friendly LG Magic Remote also offers integrated voice recognition for even more convenient usability.

      I have been thinking would it be possible to make a HDMI switch that connects to the TV (maybe via USB to control it), the TV knows it's a switch and add virtual HDMI's and by selecting one of the virtual HDMI's is tell the switch to select the correct port.

      So, it's the year 2018 and all the documentation I have found online says that LG TV's USB storage are limited to a max capacity of 2TB... nowadays that's considered rather small in terms of PVR and play backing of HDR 10bit content.
      I've ordered a the LG 49sj800v which is due to be delivered in the next couple of weeks so I am in the process of preparing the hard drive ready for it, which I have a WD Red 6TB however after reading it seems to be limited to 2TB?! which surprises me because the TV even has a USB 3.0 port.
      It is from my understanding that FAT32 is limited to 2TB and NTFS is limited to 16TB which brings me to my question(s):
       Does the 2TB limitation still apply in WebOS 3.5? if the limitation does still apply is the limitation caused by Hardware or Software? If the limiation does still apply can you use multiple partitions or is the limitation  the entire drive?  
      PS. I plan to use NTFS.

      Heya
      I am looking for a way to make my SanDisk 128GB USB3 stick work for "live playback" aka time machine. I have formatted the stick with the HP  USB Tool (quick format in Fat32) but the TV refuses to use it for TimeShift recording. Regular recordings do work however.
      Is there any other way to format the stick, or is the stick too big?

      Hi
      I've got the LG OLED55B7V. I have connected a Chromecast to HDMI4 and USB power from USB port 3. Is there any way to not turn off usb power on this USB port, or any other USB port, when turning off the TV?
      Since webOS still doesn't have a Spotify app i need a Chromecast to listen to music, and so i would like to have the Chromecast powered from the TV but the TV turned off. I know i can use screenmode to only turn off the screen, but since i can't enable that with a single button from my remote control this isn't a good enough solution.
