LG TV - Connecting a Mobile Phone via PTP

  • Troubleshooting

At a Glance

You can connect your smartphone or PC in two ways: PTP (removable disks) and MTP.
Both protocols support data backup between a smartphone and a PC, but only smartphones supporting PTP can be connected to the TV.

※ MTP connection is not supported by the TV.

  • PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol): Allows the transferring of pictures from a digital camera (smartphone) to a computer or other devices without a device driver.
  • MTP (Media Transfer Protocol): Is a protocol designed for multimedia transfer.
