More than 190 Accolades Include 7th Consecutive Recognition
for Market-leading LG OLED TV
SEOUL, Jan. 22, 2021 – LG Electronics (LG) took home the most CES® awards ever at the 2021 all-digital event – a pivotal moment in history for the technology industry – earning more than 190 honors across its home appliance, home entertainment, IT and mobile categories.
This recognition was led by Engadget’s Best of CES Award (the official award program of CES) in the TV category to LG OLED for a seventh consecutive year; in 2021 the acclaimed LG C1 series OLED TV was singled out from the thousands of new TVs shown at CES 2021. Also receiving Engadget’s Best of CES Award was the LG Rollable smartphone, grabbing the win for Best Phone/Mobile Device after it was previewed during LG’s CES 2021 press announcement.
LG’s renowned OLED TVs took home the industry’s top awards and honors, continuing its CES dominance. Among the newly announced LG TV models highly favored among industry experts is the LG G1 series’ OLED evo, the next step in the evolution of OLED TV technology that garnered honors from The Verge, Rolling Stone and Gear Patrol. The new LG A1 series OLED TV was honored by Digital Trends for Top Tech of CES 2021 Award: Best in Show, touting it a “pragmatic product” and “manna from heaven” given its combination of high caliber and attractive pricing for the masses.
LG’s new InstaView Door-in-Door® refrigerators also won big in the home appliance space, garnering accolades from the likes of Tom’s Guide, WIRED, Newsweek and PCMag. LG WashTower – the sleek, single-unit laundry solution that takes up half the floor space while tackling ultra-large loads – was recognized by leading lifestyle publications such as House Beautiful and Best Products.
From the CTA’s official award program alone, LG won 24 CES Innovation Awards including two Best of Innovation Awards given to LG’s C1 OLED TV and LG’s InstaView ThinQ refrigerator with voice recognition. LG accolades were received this year from tech experts at major media such as USA Today/Reviewed, CNET, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, The Verge, Women’s Health, Business Insider and much more.

I recently bought a LG Smart TV with WebOS (42LB6500) and would like to connect to my external hard disk connected over network. Here is how my home network and devices are setup.
I have a high speed broadband that comes to my WiFi router (D-Link DSL 2750U) with USB support for External HDD. I have connected my Seagate Ex.HDD to this router and I am able to access the drive over WiFi on my smartphone and computer using the network path \\192.168.1.1\... Once connected I am able to use it similar to any mount location, i.e., read/write files, play media, etc., I want to do similarly with my TV, I would like to use this connected Ex. HDD as any other location and would like to achieve following two things at the least without any additional hardwarePlay media files on this HDD (very very important) Use the HDD as recording device for timeshift/live pause feature (important)
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
FYI: while researching some other LG mysteries, I came across this GREAT site with VERY good visuals explaining the different model numbering schemes for all the older and newer LG models.
This goes from 2011 through to 2020, and is very comprehensive and easy to understand, so hats off to whoever put this all together:

After reading many forums how to change region for LG smart TV using Ez-Adjust I gave up.
I am trying to change my reading from IL to US (area code 1793), all forums say the same thing, go to Ez-Adjust->Area Option and change the id in the first line to the US ID.
I tried it but there is no way to change the current ID, I type the US id but nothing change, In addition I tried to change it through IN START but nothing, i was unable to change region.
I hope there is someone here that had the same problem and solved it and can help me.
I will appreciate any help.
