@Alanf I reread your original post, and it seems that I misinterpreted what you posted about, BUT your post is not very clear about the issue. So, can you please clarify the questions below:

1) Have you already added a NEW HDD drive to one of your USB sockets on the TV already, and you are able to record live TV successfully?

2) If above is correct, are you then trying ANOTHER USB device with photos/music etc, then find it hard to get back to TV functions, or to the recorded schedule?

3) please carify what you mean by "How do I switch back to TV recording" (i.e. the Time Machine schedule, or something else)?

NOTE: if playing back photos/music/mp4 from aUSB stick, it is best to CLOSE (EXIT) the playback app that is used, so that the USB stick can be safely removed. Once removed, you should be returned to the previous function or programme. If not, use the "return" button.

So kind of you to come back to me.

1) Yes I did put a portable hard drive in and it does record onto that portable drive.

2) No, not another. I want to get back to the original tv recording with no  portable HD

3) I explain this one below

Your NOTE: I think I did exit/return. I will try again

When I first bought the tv, I did not use a portable HD. I recorded off the TV succesfully.  With nothing used of my own, I assumed that the tv has a hard drive itself.  (Doesn't matter what I thought !)Then I used my portable HD and found out that  you could not record while watching another programme. (I live and learn!)  Because of that, I  decided to remove the HD and found that when I scheduled a recording,  a message came up saying "Please put in a HD" (or similar wording")

So that's it. It tells me to put in an HD and I want to know how to get back to recording without my portable HD.

PLease let me know if I am not clear enough.

Keep well.

Alan

@Alanf Thanks for the clarification. I do NOT believe that ANY LG TV's come with an internal HDD or SSD for recording, so I am at a loss to know HOW you successfully recorded anything to watch later (unless you had some sort of "cloud" app that you subscribed to, using an Internet Cloud based service)? There is very little normal memory inside smart TV's to use for recording functions, it is used for the WebOS, and the app storage, and data buffers. My old Samsung had a few MB of memory allocated for a 30 second "pause" of live TV, but that was all it had.

I suspect that once you had set up your HDD for PROPER TV based recording, your TV now needs to go back to that do do the job it was designed to do. Why did you need to remove that to "defeat" your Time Machine based recording function?

That is strange, I was messing about with the new tv for a few days before I put in my HD. I recorded only two films so maybe there was enough memory to do that.

Thanks so much for everything, due to you I did research so I have learned a lot.

Enjoy Christmas

      Becoming more sustainable means a commitment to using fewer resources, creating less waste, and doing everything possible to ensure a healthy planet for future generations. LG Electronics embraces this challenge and continues to take steps to reduce its environmental impact through an extensive program of ESG management. Along with its ambitious Zero Carbon 2030 initiative and goal to transition completely to renewable energy by 2050, LG offers innovative solutions that can help consumers to live more in balance with nature today.

      LG recently had an opportunity to demonstrate its eco-conscious exhibit for its state-of-the art HVAC solutions at Korea Energy Show 2021, South Korea’s largest annual energy exhibition. Instead of wasting new resources on a temporary exhibit, LG used prefabricated shipping containers and adopted recycled materials such as wood waste to create a unique, visually interesting space.

      Exhibiting a complete range of highly efficient LG HVAC solutions suitable for homes, offices, schools as well as other indoor environments, the highlight of the exhibit was a new commercial air conditioner made more efficient via an AI engine.

      LG’s latest HVAC solutions leverage smart technologies to help create better indoor air quality while simultaneously cutting energy consumption. LG’s ceiling-mounted 1 Way Cassette with comprehensive air purification system cleans, cools and heats the air to keep the home comfortable all year around.

      Other LG innovations on exhibit at the show included the LG Energy Storage System (ESS) and Building Energy Control (BECON), a powerful duo that together create a total energy management solution for businesses. Also on display was the LG 4-Way DUAL Vane Cassette which employs UVnano technology and an antibacterial drain pan to enhance the hygiene of the unit and the airflow produced.1
      LG showcased its first GHP Hybrid Heat Pump system air conditioner, a cost-effective option for educational and governmental facilities. LG’s hybrid solution combines the advantages of electric- and gas-powered climate control systems to deliver superb performance while reducing the cost of cooling and heating.2

      To further minimizing its footprint, LG moved to using recycled materials for the packaging of the outdoor units of its system air conditioners. Instead of using expanded polystyrene in its packaging, LG opted for expanded polypropylene as it offers improved cushioning and protection for its products. LG estimates that switching to reusable expanded polypropylene for all its AC packaging will cut its annual paper usage by 85 tons and polystyrene usage by 19 tons.

      After the conclusion of Korea Energy Show 2021, LG donated the exhibition containers to Habitat Korea, the South Korean branch of the global nonprofit Habitat for Humanity. The repurposed containers will be utilized by the organization as a dedicated education center.
      As LG’s efficient, eco-responsible HVAC solutions demonstrate, creating a healthy, comfortable indoor environment doesn’t have to come at the expense of sustainability. With innovations that carefully consider the needs of its customers and the well-being of the planet, LG is helping to bring about a

      1 Testing conducted by FITI Testing and Research Institute verified the LG DUAL Vane Cassette resulted in the reduction of 99 percent of Staphylococcus bacteria and colon bacillus.
      2 Based on cooling/heating load of 52HP (GHP 32HP and Multi V 20HP) and the proper energy source (electricity or gas), the LG GHP Hybrid Heat Pump can save up to 28 percent of the energy cost (electricity and gas combined) compared to the energy cost of using Multi V alone. Operation cost may vary depending on load conditions, climate and other environmental factors.

      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.
