65UK6300PLB


Gaogier

Question

Hello

 

i love my tv

so, I have inherited my nans tv, 43UM700PLA and have this tv in my bedroom. My mum has the old plasma tv in her room and our 65UK6300PLA is downstairs.
My nans tv is running 5.80.15 which has Apple TV app. My 65UK6300 is running 5.20.4 and doesn’t have Apple TV app, my question is, will my 65 inch tv have Apple TV app at some point? I have my sisters old Apple TV box linked up to the tv, but it’s only hd, not uhd. I plan, if no Apple TV app will be on the 65inch tv, I will buy a new Apple TV box, and put the one we have downstairs and set it up in my mums room so she can access Apple TV, amazon prime etc.

 

next question, our 65inch tv has a small internal storage where the apps and I assume the tv software is on too. Is there away of expanding this with a usb storage card?

@Gaogier No, the bit of extra internal storage on some models is (usually) for holding small amounts of live TV footage for pausing, or doing very small amounts of "Time Machine" recordings.

The external USB storage connectors are for using either USB sticks, to play music files from, or display photos, or for connecting a camera. Most newer models have a USB3 socket, that most folks use for adding a self-powered 1TB Seagate or Western Digital (or similar) HDD hard-drive (via the supplied cable), and this can be used for the scheduling of "Time machine II" recordings.

The OS Memory and APPS memory is only on the assigned internal memory (hardware chips) of the TV, and is NOT available for "expanding" in any way, so the apps are always internally allocated there. The size, format and quality of user added external memory is such a big variable, that the manufacturer could NEVER control (or allow) such a thing to be able to successfully use such a scheme. Many users are surprised by such limitations, as they are trying to compare them with PC architectures, but they are worlds apart in that respect. It is (and has to be) a closed eco-system of internal components, so as to work reliably, and seamlessly together.

APPLE TV: Did you check the LG apps store on the 6300 TV? If it is not there, would not hold your breath waiting for the APP to appear on your 65UK6300, but you could call LG support and ask directly. This is only an LG forum, NOT owned or run by LG.

Thank you for the clear and knowledgeable post.

 

LG said this 

 

I have assumed that my tv won’t have Apple TV due to my nans tv which is 2019 (I think) and mine being 2018... but not sure and don’t know if anyone here has Apple TV app on their 2018 TVs I can’t seem to find out anything via google so wanted to know via users on there’s forums

      The symbolic link within the PC's Pictures  folder is displayed by the LG Webos Photo app as a folder, but when clicked, the app says that the device is not connected. The existing folders under Pictures on the PC do work using the LG Webos Photo app. The symbolic link works properly on the PC itself, so it's not a problem with creating it using mklink. Any ideas? Thanks.

      In a unique initiative to address food insecurity and spread kindness across the United States, LG is working with global nonprofit Lasagna Love to positively impact communities by connecting neighbors through homemade lasagnas.
      LG USA enlisted the help of celebrity chefs and foodies to kick off the . They will be pitching in to bake lasagnas and posting their experience across their social media channels to inspire others to volunteer and keep the cooking challenge going.

      The campaign, which launched on Nov. 8 in time for the season of giving, has a goal of delivering 15,000 meals and connecting people in their communities throughout the USA. The social media campaign encourages others to join Lasagna Love’s mission of addressing the incredible rise in food insecurity among families and providing a simple act of kindness to those in need of a helping hand.

      LG believes in empowering home cooks and providing them with the innovative tools they need to make the most of their time in the kitchen. Through the partnership with Lasagna Love, LG will be sharing recipes and cooking tips for LG’s InstaView ranges to motivate consumers to get involved and give them all the tools they need to make and gift the perfect lasagna.

      “We’ve all been in a place of needing support, whether it’s a family struggling with food insecurity, a neighbor feeling isolated, or a friend who could use a little encouragement, we hope to inspire others this holiday season to spread Lasagna Love’s mission and connect people in their communities,” says Gail Conroy, senior director of marketing, LG Electronics USA.

      Lasagna Love’s mission is simple: feed families, spread kindness and strengthen communities. According to CEO and Founder Rhiannon Menn, “Lasagna Love was created through the simple act of one family making a home-cooked meal for another family in need. As we continue to scale our mission of spreading kindness, what’s most inspiring is how we’re making life a little better not only for the families receiving a meal, but also for the volunteers who are cooking.
      “We’re thrilled to be partnering with an innovative company like LG that truly understands the power in this one simple act of kindness and wants to help us reach even further,” she says.

      Hi
      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.
      Thanks.
