I have a one year-old model 43UK6500AUA, with standard remote only (no Magic Remote). I can find no mention anywhere of Time Machine. Does this model not include Time Machine II functionality? Must one have a Magic Remote to reveal this feature? I am also baffled by numerous references in the forum to using HDMI , which should not be necessary if using the TV's built-in tuner, as I intend to do. There is also mention of using USB3 for the external HDD. My TV has only two USB ports : USB1 and USB2 — or does this refer to USB 3.0 version (as opposed to USB 2.0)?

The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?

When scheduling a planned record of a TV broadcast by using the electronic program guide data (EPG), often the last minutes of the broadcast are missing at the records. This is very annoying. Fortunately you can adjust the starting and ending time of a planned (future) record in that manner that you can, for example, extend the ending time by 5 or 10 minutes. This is very helpful.
Unfortunately this option is not available for instant records either from the EPG screen or by direct recording. Here I have only the opportunity to completely change the EPG ending time of the running record to an own time value (e.g. record of 1 h from now). It would be more helpful if running records could also be extended a little bit but without loosing the end time of the record taken over from EPG.
Are there any other solutions for it?
Hello to all,
I've bought these days LG 50UM4750PLA 2019 model and wanted to check it's power on time.
I know that in previous WebOS version this feature was in Settings -> General -> About this TV -> Total Power On Time , but now I can't find it.
I don't know does it matter but my tv is European model, made in Poland.
Is there any other way to check "Total Power On Time" by entering some Secret Menu or Service menu or something else?

When you reset the A/V (mute button 3 times), you see the default for non-HDR is "Auto" and default
for HDR is "off". When you switch back and forth between HDR and non-HDR this energy saving setting is
I quite like "Auto" for regular material (non-HDR) it does a good job. On the other hand,
the setting of "Off" for HDR is terrible, especially with Amazon Prime. The bright highlights are too bright
and the dark shadow area's are a murky grey. Cannot really compensate with backlight, contrast
or brighness adjustments, it's ineffective for this problem. However, to compensate for this TV's mediocre
contrast range (very obvious in HDR), you can set HDR Energy Saving to minimum or medium and you can make it watchable
The problem is, as soon as you do this, when you revert back to non-HDR material, it no longer automatically switches
back to Energy Saver "Auto", but it stays on the setting you used when HDR was active.
I don't know if this is a design limitation or some oversight in the firmware, but this is a big inconvenience.
I've got no idea if newer LG TV's also do this, but I would certianly check this prior to purchasing a newer LG TV.
If my conclusions about this "problem" are wrong, please enlighten me.
