ITS NOW 2018: Does the 2TB USB limitation still apply? even with NTFS and WebOS 3.5


Recommended Posts

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):

  1.  Does the 2TB limitation still apply in WebOS 3.5?
  2. if the limitation does still apply is the limitation caused by Hardware or Software?
  3. If the limiation does still apply can you use multiple partitions or is the limitation  the entire drive?

 

PS. I plan to use NTFS.

Hi SimonHayterUK,

I see your question is more than one year old now. I am also looking for an answer to similar problem of 4TB limitation on external hdd. Did you find any answer or workaround?

Any help will muchly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

I have a LG webOS UH650V (2016) running 05.50.55 firmware, yesterday I attached a 4TB Western Digital Elements drive with a single NTFS partition and it is seen and works.

      Hello,
      We just bought this LG tv1   LG 43UR73006LA (2023).
      The screen mirror from my MacBook gives our LG tv as an option but when I click it, it says there is no connection possible with '[LG] webOS TV UR73006LA'
      Also when I want to add the tv to my Apple  HomeKit, it is not possible.
      The TV is on the same WiFi network and I checked if there are any updates available. 
      What can I do?

      After viewing photos/videos on a flashdrive plugged into the USB of an LG TV and using SmartShare to view... and then removing the USB and then no longer having access to the TV... I noticed on the flashdrive a new folder called "LG TV" and within what appears to be files that may have been the thumbnails displayed on the TV. My question is... do those thumbnails also remain on the TV as recent history even without the USB plugged in? The LG Smart TV online user guide refers to "Recent" ("To view a list of recently viewed or added content, select Recent). Would thumbnails be there without the source flashdrive?

      Dear LG TV developers,
      I am glad to see that LG Smart TV has a built-in web browser and LG API supports "openBrowserAt" so that my smart home controller can open a web page on the TV. However, nowadays, we also have ms-teams online meeting that is accessible through web browser which the LG TV supports. However, this requires the browser to have a microphone to record audio and to have a webcam for video recording. Also, certain smart-home systems also need built-in microphone to record voice commands so that no additional standalone unit is required next to the TV.
      Unfortunately, LG Smart TV (I have OLED48A1PTA) does not have microphone neither does it support USB mic/webcam. So I am writing this post to suggest that future middle/higher-end LG Smart TV can be equipped with these. Moreover, it might be possible for TV firmware update to add the support of USB webcam/microphone so that they can be used in web browsers for web-based online meeting.
      Thank you very much for your consideration!
      Best regards,
      Xuancong

      Yes! Freesat does work on the LGE TV that I have 2021 model. Using a SKY DISH and LNB in the UK. Okay now that sorted out.
      With WEBOS 3.34.95
      Then you launch the guide on freesat the preview window does not display a picture. Just says downloading" If you then select a channel from the guide the TV picture is shown.
      Looks like a bug to me...
      Also on the channel info screen. The displayed info screen box is very big and the font size is very very small even on a quite large TV.
      It would be better is a bigger font could be displayed.
