Is it possible to access Live playback, i.e. pause, rewind live TV with a universal remote, not using the LG magic remote?
I have an LG 65" OLED B8 and use a Logitech Harmony 650 remote - can't use the magic remote as a universal remote as my sound runs through an AV receiver connected via the toslink input on the TV, not HDMI., so no Simplink/CEC.
Live playback is working fine (recording to hard drive ok) and I would swear that when I set up the Logitech remote it was able to pause and rewind live TV just using the Play/Pause/Rewind buttons on the harmony remote no problem, but when I tried it recently it wouldn't work. Nothing in my set up has changed. Has something changed with webOS??
I've check the Harmony setup is correct and if I bring up the live playback scroll bar with the magic remote, then the buttons on the Logitech work perfectly so I don't think it's a Logitech Harmony problem.
The only thing I can't figure out is how to get the harmony remote to bring up the Live Playback display, without using the magic remote. I also find that shaking the magic remote to get the pointer doesn't work very well, so I have to move the scroll wheel to get the pointer, which changes the channel, so I'd rather avoid it altogether (I also feel like I used to be able to bring up the magic remote pointer by clicking the scroll wheel, but that doesn't work any more either. Did I imagine it?)
Any suggestions on a button function I can program on the Harmony to bring up the Live Playback display, or better yet restore the ability to just press Play/Pause/Rewind on the Harmony and it works without needing the Live Playback scroll bar to be displayed first?
Apologies if I haven't explained my issue properly. i've never had a problem with my OLED before ( I love it!) so am a first time poster. any ideas?

LG Electronics’ SELF-LIT campaign kicks off with a collaboration with Italian luxury brand BVLGARI for its exhibition in Seoul, BVLGARI Colors. Established in Rome in 1884, BVLGARI is revered worldwide for its exclusive collections of watches, fragrances and accessories. But arguably it is jewelry that the design house is best known for. Featuring beautiful, precision-cut gemstones, precious metals of the highest grade and BVLGARI’s iconic, bold style, the prestige pieces are a gorgeous interplay of colors and textures.
For a work of art to truly be appreciated, it must be presented in the exact color or effect the creator intended. LG’s self-lit OLED technology has been deemed by BVLGARI as the only display capable of capturing the vibrancy and exquisite detail of the brand’s jewelry in all its glory. With their ability to convey immaculate color reproduction and infinite contrast, the self-lit pixels deliver exceptionally lifelike colors as well as deep blacks and a contrast ratio that provides an incredible sense of weight and three-dimensionality.
To truly showcase the mesmerizing beauty and variety of BVLGARI’s masterpieces, intriguing digital works of art by top Korean artists are displayed alongside the jewelry on LG self-lit based OLED screens. Divided into four themes titled Red, Blue, Green and Multicolored, the exhibition promises to offer an exhilarating experience that combines the best of traditional craftsmanship and the epitome of technological innovation from LG and BVLGARI, the two masters of colors.
BVLGARI Colors is the first in LG’s SELF-LIT Art project series of global exhibits celebrating the heritage and history of OLED technology. LG will again partner with BVLGARI in Milan to turn premium shopping destinations including the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and BVLGARI’s flagship Serpenti Gallery in Rome into SELF-LIT Streets during Milan Design Week.
What’s more, LG’s SELF-LIT Museum will see LG’s stunning OLED TVs displaying art at the world’s best-known museums while SELF-LIT Masterpiece will focus on the creativity of contemporary artists at renowned international art galleries. The self-lit technology of LG’s next-generation TVs boasts the accuracy and the color palette required to convey artists’ intentions without any compromise. Back in Seoul at the end of the year, LG’s SELF-LIT Bridge project will express the unique value of LG OLED and LG’s determination to bring consumers the best viewing experiences possible.
It’s rare for a technology to be called a work of art and yet, there is perhaps no better way to describe LG OLED. Stay tuned to see how LG OLED continues to redefine the definition of art in a way no other technology can.

OK. I have a 2018 LG Smart TV model OLED65C8PUA. The TV 'magically' recognizes and (badly) displays/ plays the 2gb of photos, videos and audio residing on my Western Digital 4TB My Passport external hard drive I have. The problem is the TV is the ONLY device that WILL RECONIZE THE DRV! 8 diffirent computers running from Vista to Win 10 have given me 'DRV (x) is not accessable'. At one time the drv was password protected and it worked fine. The exact password was lost so I tried a number of variations and was able to finally unlock the drv and remove the password using WD Utilities. It worked for a bit and I was able to copy out a few files using a Surface Pro/ Windows 10 but it stopped and now with that Surface Pro and the other windows machines I get `D is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect'. I even put it on a Samsung smart TV - none will read the drv, ONLY THE LG! The LG also displays the DRV'S volume label and content filenames as well.
I want to copy these files before the drive fails as the catch here is the LG seems to produce one or two "unrecognized files' every time I use it and some of these videos are one-of family heirlooms! I want to avoid another $300 data recovery bill if possible. And if the LG can read it one would think there is a way forward.
Any suggestions will be most appreciated!
