LgUF640g smart tv usb connection does not seem to recognise

lgUF640g smart tv usb connection does not seem to recognise hard drive for recording.I have read the manuals I can find and they seem to suggest that with a normal remote control, while a program is on one can press ok and get the option to record the current program to an external disk. Also there is suggestion that I should be able to record on schedule.I have plugged in a 160GB external USB 2 drive and it is recognised for playback as there is music and photographs on there but it will not give me anywhere an option to record.As far as I remember the disk was FAT32 formatted initially. Is this the problem? DO I need to reformat in NTFS or something like that?Please help as I would love to record in High def directly from the TV.

My 58" samsung plasma tv keeps flashing the menu screen on

my 58" samsung plasma tv keeps flashing the menu screen on to my tv.JA: How old is your Samsung, and have you tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?Customer: 6 years old. I've never left it unplugged for more than a minute. (The only way I can temporarily get rid of that screen is to reboot the whole system, then it's good for a few hours, but then goes back to putting the menu screen back up.JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?Customer: I've had too boards replaced on it at a cost of about $500.00.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the TV Technician about your situation and then connect you two.
