External HDD & DTS support


frank_1985

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 prition style of GPT rather than MBR, so a utility will be needed to set them upfor reading/writing on a smart TV.

Have a read of this:

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

I see. Thank you.

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.

I am also looking for DTS support on my Nano90 TV (2022 model) when playing files from a HD
It does not appear to be supported, which is a shame

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      Hi Guys,
      Since short I have a problem seeing Dolby Vision in the Netflix app on my LG Oled C7.
      I was alway able to see on top of every movie when it was streamed in Dolby Vision.
      At this moment the only thing I see is Ultra HD 4K and when I play the movie no Dolby Vision or even HDR.
      I'm from Belgium and I have the latest firmware update.
      I have reset the LG to factory settings twice with no advance.
      I also have the same problem with my connected Amazon Firestick 4K Max, only showing Ultra HD 4K.
      When i play apple tv this shows dolby vision in the information of the movie and when playing I get the dolby vision logo in right top corner.
      Contacted Netflix a couple of time, the answer I get is to wait till the dolby vison information is showing again.
      Any idea,
      Kind regards

      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.
