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, du

@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?

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

Enjoy Christmas

      I can get to the web with no problem on my LG TV ( Model UM7300AUE), but when I try to watch a live stream event, I just get a blank screen.  Our church live streams services from their website.  On my computer, it launches automatically.  From the tv, I can get to the exact same page, but no stream, no error message.  I chatted with someone from LG, who told me the tv's browser is incapable of watching a live stream and that I can't use another browser.  I know other tv brands (even older models) do this with no problem.   Can anyone help?
      Thanks,
      Johnny

      I have several lg tv’s of the non smart type. Setting the recording time from the TV guide is simple. However on Webos it is extremely complex.
      Let me explain.
      Where I live, programs always finish beyond their scheduled time. On the non smart tv it is easy to add an extra fifteen minutes to the time while defining it. On webos you need to first define it and then go to a different application in order to edit it! It makes recording from the schedule just too complex for most users.
      Please,please fix this in an update.

      I have a brand new LG OLEDC8PLA model and have both an input for my aerial and for my Satellite however i cannot seem to find anyway to switch from watching via my aerial, which is Spanish DTV and then switching to my Satellite to watch UK TV 
      I live in Spain hence the two systems.  When I press the home button on the remote the list is at the bottom  and displayed are LG Content Store HDMI3, LiveTV Freesat etc but no button with the aerial option, so the only way I can switch is to go into the main settings menu select Programme Tuning and switch the programme mode from Satellite to Antenna.
      This does not seem a very smart way to be able to switch
      Does anybody know if you can switch easily?

      TCL is resurrecting the Palm brand with a brand-new Palm, Inc. based in California. As we reported last week, late last year, although at the time it wasn't clear what the company had planned. It's not at all clear what TCL intends to do with the Palm brand, although they seem to recognize the history that the brand carries.
      Says TCL:

      Palm has always carried a lot of affect and emotions. That's why TCL has set the direction to rebuild the brand involving Palm's very own community, making it the largest scale crowd-sourced project ever seen in the industry.
      Where TCL's Alcatel Onetouch has long produced , and it seems that TCL wants Palm to be a division that produces "a more-advanced device", with "breakthrough innovations" across the hardware, software, and even sales models.
      TCL's full weight will be behind Palm, touting 5000 engineers and 7 research-and-development centers around the world. When we'll see more from TCL and Palm isn't clear, but we do know one thing: Palm is coming back.
      , with Palm being founded as an independent company in 1992, being bought by US Robotics in 1995, and then 3Com in 1996, being spun off in 2000, split in half in 2002 and renamed PalmOne, merged with Handspring in 2003, rebranding as Palm, launching webOS in 2009, selling to HP in 2010, getting canceled in 2011, webOS getting open sourced in 2012, and the remnants of the Palm company (minus the branding) being sold to LG in 2013. It's rare that a company receives a second life as Palm did, and rarer still to be revived after being left for dead.
      Regardless, the Palm brand carries a lot of emotion for many, so it's good to see it coming back and we hope TCL produces a phone that's worthy of the name Palm.

      Hi, I have a feature request for the sound out setting. I often connect my Bluetooth headphones to the TV. We don't use the internal speaker of the TV, we use the optical sound out setting whenever I don't use Bluetooth. It would make our lives a lot easier if the TV can remember the last sound out setting before connecting to Bluetooth and default back to this setting when the Bluetooth device gets disconnected. At the moment, each time I disconnect the headphones I have to go back into settings and change the sound out setting from internal speaker to optical again. 
      Thanks and regards
      Hubert
