Enigma2 can:
Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
NAS instead of USB HDD.
Unencrypted recordings.

No.

Enigma2 can:

Streaming (Intranet and Internet), webOS, yes Intranet especially if you run a Plex Media Server, there is DLNA support in webOS, YMMV.  Internet, well it depends on what you want to stream, if it is Flash based or anything esoteric then no, but the browser is not designed for consuming content.  See elsewhere on the forum for more information.
Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc. If it runs over a specific channel then yes, if it requires specific software or hardware interface then it is unlikely.
NAS instead of USB HDD.  Not sure what you are actually asking in this question, if you mean will it read from a NAS then the answer is possibly depending on make, model, software install etc.  Running a Plex Media Server is the best method of streaming media to webOS.
Unencrypted recordings. - webOS, no

Hope this answers your questions more fully.

OK, what is the artificial limit for recordings?
I think, I don't need "10" or "8" or "6".
But 3 or 4 or 5 could be possible.
Two recordings, one viewing, and 1 streaming are four "recordings".


I mean that I will use a NAS intead of USB-HDD for recordings.

"Unencrypted recordings. - webOS, no


Also free not encrypted Channels?
For example, "Das Erste HD", "ZDF HD", "WDR HD", BBC One HD", ITV HD" etc. are not encrypted

Encyrpting not encrypted channels, thats nutty. Freaky TV set manufacturers. Movie studios, TV stations have not the legal power to say "you have to encrypt!".
 Only pay tv provider are dependent from movie studios. Encyrpting their channels and encrypting in their boxes.
And also Sony as a paranoid movie studio is "nutty" with their TVs. Sony is a movie studio, but NOBODY will record tv streams with a sony for illegal internet downloads.
There are existing enough set-top-boxes or TV cards for PC to do that. Sony (and LG...) could save the recordings without encryption, without a "risk" for the profits of the movie studios or tv networks (CBS series etc..).


I need "Plex" for streaming TV from LG TV to smartphone or tablet?!? Not with a App from LG or other private app-coder? Not with webinterface in a browser? Like "webif" in "Enigma2".

Is streaming with transcoding possible?
Transcoding from full tv resolution to a small data stream (for example from 12Mbit/s HD to 1Mbit/s SD or 320x...) for viewing over Internet.
That is possible with the modern Enigma2 set-top-boxes with "Transcoding" function for streaming.
Before "transcoding", it was possible to send the stream to a pc with "VLC", and VLC transcode the stream for internet.
This would be OK. The PC is runnig 24/7. Because, I use it as NAS for TV-Recordings.

      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.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.

      I have lg smart tv model lh55959v suddenly its stuck on lg logo no reboot nothing except stuck on logo 
      If it a firmware problem how to solve it !!
    • By seb0071
      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.

      We have signage projects, all over GCC. 
      We are facing issue with Webos tv especially on model 49sm5ke-bj. It is losing connectivity overnight, the displays are left switched on at stores. But on the next day it wouldn't be connected to the Internet and hence the contents are getting corrupted. Always we need to restart the display again or exit and start the app again.
