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.

      We recently purchased an LG Oled TV:  OLED55B6P

      We tried to access our photo library in Google Photos using the LG's web browser. We initially got access but after a few minutes we were kicked out and a message advised that we had to "Update the Browser" and links to the major browsers appeared. When we selected any of the browsers and attempted to upload a browser update we were informed by another message the this tv "Does not support downloads".  We can no longer open Google Photos.   Other sites seem to be accessible through the browser - the only one we can't access it seems - is Google Photos.
      Questions:
      1.  How do we update the LG's browser so that we can access Google Photos?
      2.  Is there any other way to access Google Photos?
      Our computer is an iMac and we have iPads and iPhones.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks!

      I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

      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.
