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 just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.

      Hello,
      I unpaired the Magic Remote of my LG OLED 55B7 tv by pressing "Back+Recents" buttons on the remote, while it was off and not connected to a power outlet. The remote control blinked 3 times.
      Then I turned my tv on and the tv wasn't recognizing the remote, so by pressing the "Ok" button in the remote, the tv paired with it and displayed a message confirming it.
      My question is about the mechanism in all of this: since my tv was off, how did the tv itself forget the remote?
      Is the pairing process stored both in the tv and remote?
      Will there be some "left over" pairing stored in the tv related to the procedure while it was off?
      Many thanks.
