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

      My new gallery series OLED TV died after less than two months. For weeks now, I have been calling LG support for help. The have created multiple repair tickets, but they have not been to get a repair technician out to fix the problem.
      LG keeps trying to outsource the repair to 3rd party service companies. Does anyone know how I can find a local tech that works for LG to come out and fix it?
      If not, what recourse do I have?
      Thank you.

      Subtitles as well as all html elements beside video disappear on every website after 2 minutes. The only way to bring them back is to activate cursor with magic remote. This started happening around the beginning of July when new LG browser update rolled out. I managed to get around this by resetting TV to factory settings and evading browser update. This worked until 23rd of July when Web OS update came along . Thinking that problem might be solved i installed it. Turns out this update just integrated this browser error into the OS and now even after resetting to factory the problem cant be avoided. LG had just made the error which could be evaded by downgrading browser mandatory instead of fixing it. This is disgrace. If I had a company with 5 employees the update with error would have never entered circulation and even if it did I would not issue another update which would make error impossible to evade. LG has only billions of dollars and tens of thousands of employees and they do not notice such a major problem even after they have been informed by the users.

      link hidden, please login to view after having massive hassles with a Philips TV and BBC iPlayer, ITV player etc.
      A friend recommended LG, so I bought one. NOW I find while you have iPlayer, ITV, Ch4, Ch5 players AREN'T available for my 2020 edition TV.
      Is this going to be resolved or will I be returning the TV?
