Recording TV Issue


Spencer Cook

Question

I've recently bought a

, It has a external powered SSD disk.

Sometimes we'll notice it start to record a scheduled program, then 1 minute later stop recording.  Being as LG tried to avoid paying the license for ITV/CH4/CH5 players here in the UK.

Any idea why?

I've only just bought this TV to replace a 2 year old Philips TV which had no end of hassles, and TBF Smart TV's really are as thick as Pig S....  My old windows 7 media centre PC with TV tuner was so much more reliable and easier to use.

This disk worked perfectly fine in previous TV.  It also works fine with this TV, it has been formatted in this tv, and will record fine. 

However occasionally the TV will start to record then a minute later stop.

I can then go to the program and start to record and it records the rest of the program fine.  As I say, it's just occasionally it stops recording.

@Spencer Cook It is possible that it is either a minor firmware bug, OR an intermittent SSD disk error, that causes the recording to stop. To eliminate that, take the SSD off the TV, connect it to your laptop or PC, then run the checkdsk command on it. That will be in the "cmd" option (it calls the black window like the old DOS command window.

See how to here;

If no joy, you might need to purchase "Spinrite" that is a very good disk analyser and fixer, that might force it to do a proper "wear levelling" on any off spec memory areas on the SSD. It is around $USD 70, but you get a lifetime licence and support. See here:

      Good evening all,
      Via WebOS, i have tried to download an .avi file but i got a message similar to "Downloading file is not supported" from the browser.
      I would like to find a way (via another app, via an external device or whatever) to download a media file into my TV or USB drive plugged-in. Then, I would like the TV to play that downloaded file.
      Any idea how to do this ?
       
      In other words, today, what I do:
      - download a media file from the web with my computer (700mo)
      - copy the media into an USB drive
      - unplug the usb drive from my computer
      - plug the usb drive into my TV
      - play the media to watch it with my TV
       
      I would like to avoid using my computer to watch my downloaded media on my TV.
       
      Thanks,
      Manbboy

      TV's a UK7700PUD. I've scoured the settings, but can't find anything that might let me export bookmarks to, say, USB. Although I did see in the TV's settings you can create/sign in to an LG account... Any chance I could use that to sync bookmark data in the cloud for an LG account? Wanna be sure here before I resort to manually copying them. Thanks.

      Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?

      Hello,
      My TV (49SM8100) is asking for firmware upgrade, but I would like to have to positive returns before upgrading it.
      Did any of you upgraded it without problem ?
       
      Thanks
      Ced

      PS : I still can remember two upgrades ago, when the new firmware broke the Quick access key...  I also have see two users with two different TV models which have been bricked after the update.

      Thx
