External HDD & DTS support

Question

Hi everyone,

I'm interested in the OLED BX. I would like to know if it is compatible with a 5TB HDD (to be connected and fed through one of the TV USB port).

LG manuals recommend to connect up to 2TB storage HDDs but don't really state that higher capacity devices are not expected to work.

Then, I'm not sure how are things with DTS support. It seems that DTS decoding is no longer supported on the 2020 tv sets. But LG web page (updated 08/22/2020) titled "Support Video Playback File Type & Codec" still claims that "TV supports DTS audio codec when USB/HDMI video file playback offers it".

Can any of you shed some light on these ones?

Thank you so much.

@Francesco Rossi The problem with HDD over 2TB, is that they need a partition style of GPT rather than MBR, so a utility will be needed to set them up for reading/writing on a smart TV.

Have a read of this:

Sorry I don't know about the DTS question (possiby not).

Many thanks. Browsing the web I've read of several people claiming their HDDs work just fine with recent LG models and they're over 2TB.

I currently own a 2015 Samsung smart tv and it is capable to read 3 HDDs at once (5, 4 and 2 TB). Maybe recent smart TVs can't read GPT hard drives while older ones can?

I'm little confused here and I'd really prefer to know in advance what I'm getting, rather than make a purchase and then be forced to return the tv.

@Francesco Rossi Sorry about the typo in my earlier post. It should read "they need a partition style of GPT".

By the way, I assume you already know that any programmes recorded from the TV to the HDD can ONLY be played back on that TV, as it is in a proprietary format. This is because of DRM and copyright restrictions (that vary widely from country to country).

Hi @frank_1985

Currently, I have a Western Digital 4TB drive connected to my 2016 model year LG, cannot say whether a 5TB is going to work though.

Thank you. If a 4TB works, a 5TB is going to do it, as well. I'm just afraid that recent models no longer support high capacity disks or require partitioning.

I have a C8 and 2TB hard disk works just fine without any partition.

I also connected a 10tb wd my book (powered) with 3x3tb partitions and it worked fine without any lags as well.

Hard Disk support is not an issue, it is the power it draws. Just in case yours doesn’t work , get a powered usb hub and connect the HDD to to the tv via the hub. It will definitely work.

playback support - well it will play anything you throw at it including dolby vision remuxes.

Audio wise mine passes thru upto DTS-HD MA.

Since CX has eARC it should be pass thu atmos and dtsX if the media player does play the respective audio track.

      Hi All,
       
      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 hardware Play 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.
       
      Regards,
      Rukmaj

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      There have been numerous articles over the pst year  suggesting that LG would roll AirPlay support onto the older 2018 model OLED TV's. This was even confirmed by a support person on the chat session for the Australian support site. They said it would be released before the end of 2020. 
      My TV is OLED65C7T and is currently on firmware 05.80.55. 
      Last week I asked the "chat now" person again and they said it was not happening. I'm not sure any of them know what they are talking about. 
      Can anyone shed any light on this?

      Hello friends,
      I have setup a home network in Windows 10, I think it uses DLNA. I can play all the files from the computer or the USB stick in the router with no issue but the external subtitles (correctly named) are not working in my 65C9, only internal ones. 
      If I access the same files in the network from a computer, there is no problem and subtitles are shown, it's only the TV not displaying them.
      Can someone help in how to make external subs work when played from a local network or what to check?
       
      Thanks

      Hi,
      I have recently bought new OLED55BX. But as soon as I've added channels through satelite tuner I cannot change order of them. I think I'm in right section, because the legend of buttons in the right bottom corner says "change number of channel", "move channel" and so on. But when I press any of these, error pops up saying "cannot change channels from 1 to 778" (probably all of I have found at tuning). If anyone knows how to repair this please help.
      Thanks and Merry Christmas.

      LG OLED TVS MAKE CREATORS’ DREAMS COME TRUE, BRINGING CINEMA, SPORTS, GAMING TO LIFE IN NEW WAYS
      2020 LG OLED and LG NanoCell TVs Ready to Stun with Innovative Design,
      Best Picture Quality, Enhanced Features, Wide Selection of Compelling Content

       
      LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2020 – LG Electronics (LG), the world leader in OLED TVs, is raising the bar again in 2020 with 14 new LG OLED models led by three new art-inspired GX Gallery series 4K Ultra HD TVs, 88- and 77-inch class Real 8K models and an all-new OLED screen size – 48-inch. Unveiled at CES® 2020, the new LG OLED TVs – and new 8K and 4K LG NanoCell LCD TVs – are designed to deliver stunning picture quality and innovative design with upgraded performance and artificial intelligence-enabled features that bring movies, sports and video games to life like never before imagined.
      At the heart of the latest 8K and 4K LG OLED and 8K LG NanoCell TVs are a number of advanced core technologies, most notably the new α (Alpha) 9 Gen 3 AI Processor. This advanced processor leverages upgraded processing power and artificial intelligence deep learning algorithms to improve on LG’s renowned picture quality and enable a host of specialized features for various types of content including movies, games and sports, taking the user experience to new heights.
      LG’s 2020 premium TVs flaunt unique, elegant designs that integrate effortlessly with any home decor. The all-new minimalist Gallery Series takes design to a whole different level with an ultra-thin form factor – the 65-inch model is a mere 20 millimeters (0.79 inches) thin. Paired with an included specially-designed wall mount, these 55-, 65- and 77-inch class models hang completely flush on the wall, providing a dramatic appearance, transforming the OLED into a piece of art.
      The GX Gallery series 4K UHD models join the groundbreaking LG OLED WX Wallpaper series (razor-thin 77- and 65-inch models) and the LG SIGNATURE OLED R (model 65RX) to provide genuine space integration and an element of futuristic luxury, elevating their surroundings regardless of whether they’re turned on.
      The 2020 LG OLED ZX Real 8K models, delivering four times more detail than 4K TV and 16 times more than HDTV, exceed the strict requirements established by the Consumer Technology Association’s (CTA) official industry definition for 8K Ultra HD TVs. The 88- and 77-inch LG OLED models also surpass the measurement criteria recommended by the International Committee for Display Metrology and are among the first to earn the new CTA 8K Ultra HD logo.
      For 2020, while offering new versions of the two popular 4K UHD series (models CX, BX) in 77-, 65- and 55-inch class sizes, LG is also bringing the unparalleled picture quality of LG OLED TV to an all-new screen size – 48-inch. This 4K UHD unit (model OLED48CX) reproduces even sharper picture quality with 8 million-plus pixels on the 48-inch screen, density comparable to that of a 96-inch 8K TV.
      The 2020 LG NanoCell TV lineup is highlighted by six Real 8K TV models (75- and 65-inch models in Nano99, Nano97 and Nano95 series), all exceeding the stringent requirements needed to display the official industry 8K UHD logo from CTA.
      ULTIMATE CINEMA EXPERIENCE
      Combining OLED’s self-emissive technology and absolute blacks with support for Dolby Vision IQ and the UHD Alliance’s new Filmmaker Mode™, 2020 LG OLED TVs bring the cinema into the living room with new levels of realism. With Dolby Vision® ultra-vivid high dynamic range imaging, Dolby Atmos® immersive sound, and for the first time ever, Dolby Vision IQ, 2020 LG OLED TVs deliver a truly spectacular video-audio experience. Dolby Vision IQ introduces new intelligent features for TVs to deliver optimal picture quality as the creatives intended, no matter the ambient light environment or content genre.
      The new Filmmaker Mode, supported by Hollywood’s leading directors, delivers images the way they intended. By disabling certain post-processing effects (such as motion smoothing, noise reduction and sharpening) while perfectly preserving correct aspect ratios, colors and frame rates, LG OLED TVs with the Filmmaker Mode faithfully replicate the original vision of the director. LG OLED TVs also have been recognized by Hollywood Professional Association with its Excellence in Engineering Award as the first and only with integrated hardware-level calibration software, further solidifying LG’s OLED TV as Hollywood’s leading reference consumer display for use in content production.
      LG’s award-winning webOS smart TV platform will bring 2020 LG OLED and LG NanoCell TVs a plethora of programming from the constantly-growing number of top global content providers through apps and services such as Disney+, Netflix and CBS All Access. New for 2020, the Apple TV app allows customers to subscribe and watch Apple TV+ and Apple TV channels as well as access their iTunes video library and buy or rent more than 100,000 films and TV shows. Customers with 2018 and 2019 LG TV models will also be able to enjoy the Apple TV app this year.
      ULTIMATE GAME EXPERIENCE
      With stellar picture quality and newly added gaming features, LG’s 2020 TVs are ideal for serious gamers, delivering the most seamless, immersive big-screen gaming experiences available anywhere. As the first TV manufacturer to offer NVIDIA G-SYNC® Compatibility, LG is expanding this capability in 2020 to 12 OLED TVs to provide a flawless PC gaming experience without screen tearing or other distracting visual artifacts.
      With unparalleled variable refresh rate and ultra-fast response time, LG OLED TV is considered the most advanced gaming TV on the market today. With the extremely low input lag of expensive desktop gaming monitors, detail-packed visuals of today’s games are simply jaw-dropping on LG OLED TVs. And the smoothness and responsiveness of controlling the onscreen action has to be experienced to be believed.
      In another industry-first, 2020 LG OLED TVs feature the HDR Gaming Interest Group’s HGiG Mode so gamers can enjoy high quality visuals as game creators and developers intended when playing HDR games via consoles on their LG TVs. HGiG is a body made up of companies from the game and display industries that develops standards to improve the HDR gaming experience for consumers.
      During intense gaming sessions, LG OLED TVs even help address eye fatigue. The Eye Comfort Display certification, from the trusted international testing lab TÜV Rheinland, verifies that LG OLED TVs offer adjustability for blue light content, are flicker-free, and provide exceptional image quality from any angle. LG OLED screens meet every TÜV testing criterion, including wide color gamut and HDR.
      ULTIMATE SPORTS EXPERIENCE
      Not only ideal for film buffs and gamers, LG OLED TVs are perfect for sports fans, too, offering exhilarating viewing experiences courtesy of the 120Hz response time – made possible by the new α9 Gen 3 AI Processor – and sports-centric features.
      Sports Alert helps users to keep track of their favorite teams and schedules and notifying them as soon as a team scores. Users can select their favorite teams in various sports – soccer, football, baseball, etc. – to receive automatic updates at the start of a match, whenever a team scores and when the game ends.
      Sports fans can also benefit from enhanced sound. Viewers can connect the TV to Bluetooth speakers to create a more dynamic soundscape to create a real stadium environment.
      “LG’s vision to offer outstanding value to its customers comes to life this year with the company’s new line-up of art-inspired TVs,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “Beyond the unrivaled picture quality that LG’s premium TVs deliver, the new additions also come with the company’s advanced technologies, best in AI-integration and unrivalled, futuristic design made possible by OLED technology.”
