I've got an LG Smart TV 43UM 7400PLB and am looking to buy an external hard drive so I can pause live TV and record programs. I'm currently using a much smaller capacity USB which can't pause live TV and will soon be full.
I've read on various forums that certain hard drives won't work or that I'll need to buy a certain connecting cable.
I was thinking of buying a Seagate 2TB drive, (STGX2000400) which is around £55.
Can anyone recommend one or confirm that the Seagate one will be okay.
I have a LG 43UK6950PLB, a few years old.
Suddenly yesterday most things stopped working.
The apps just freeze and won't load,
The remote cursor has disappeared,
If selecting a different input, it won't load that input and just freezes.
Wifi isn't connected, however it can find my router in the menu, just won't connect.
I've carried out a reset, unplugging, and turning off standby mode etc to no avail.
Any help appreciated, thank you.
I use my LG set to watch Netflix and Amazon in DD 5.1 sound sound just fine. Disney+ is only giving me DD stereo. What gives? I'm looking but can't find the setting. I get DolbyVision but as far as sound, only getting stereo. I output to my receiver over ARC. How do I get surround?
My TV is an OLED55BXPTA
I would like to suggest adding ARC+Headphones or Optical+Headphones sound options as while watching a movie TOGETHER some people prefer to use headphones due to hearing issues whereas others prefer to enjoy surround sound coming from the receiver. I've resolved it around by adding an expensive DAC that splits optical Dolby 5.1 to my Yamaha receiver through optical and 2CH stereo to headphones through 3.5mm, but it would be so much easier if it was supported out of the box.
I hope LG people read this.
PS: DAC model is CYP DCT-9DN for those interested. Pic attached.
