HDMI record to usb


Question

I am currently viewing my old camcorder tapes on my 2019 smart TV via hdmi.

Does anyone know if its possible to record this to a usb stick using time machine function? Or does it only record tv programme signals?

1)  I don't know. You might try, then be able to tell us.  :-)

2)  Why take the detour via the TV? Your camcorder may well have a USB port. - Yes, there are versions of USB and types of connectors. - Me, I think that I would try to use microSD cards and a multi-connector card reader. (Much more versatible than USB sticks.)

@R. Ho. The Time Machine functionality is ONLY for use with transmitted (live) programmes.

Your best bet is to use a Windows 7 or Windows 10 PC, and use a combination of hardware and software to  convert them to MP4 format, then write them to your USB device.

HARDWARE: Some video cards had the capability of taking HDMI input and having software convert the incoming digital stream. Most likely you have an "ordinary" one without that capability, so you could need to purchase a "video capture card", install it and also install drivers for it, and software to convert the video stream. It is a long process and if you do not have a desktop PC that you can add in a specific card for this, then you may find it more convenient to just get a quote for the conversion service from a local firm that does that, and they can put the converted files on to you USB stick for you.

There are various "game play capture" add-in cards available (e.g. Elgato HD60 that has HDMI input), that MIGHT work for this. I have never used one, but you might get a cheap one from EBAY.

      I'm not getting any audio from the apps via the HDMI via ARC connection to my receiver.  This occurred two weeks ago and was unable to resolve it, but ironically there was new firmware released that same day for my B6 (3/31/17) and this fixed the issue.  However, now I again can't get it working after a TV reset and tinkering with the audio settings again.  I tried to load the firmware again, but it appears this is not possible to forceable load the same firmware.

      I recently purchased LG commercial TV UTc640s (Asia) and found out that content store is missing and thus can’t even run a simplest application such as Netflix, is there any way we can update firm ware or something to add the content store or am I stuck with that very expensive smart box, that can’t even run a Netflix ? Kindly help please.
