What is a TLX file?
A TLX file is a configuration file used by an LG commercial television, also known as a Free-To-Guest (FTG) television. It controls what channels and settings options are available on the TV. Most often, users create TLX files by exporting them from an already-configured FTG TV, for use with other TVs of the same model.
Hotels, hospitals, and other businesses with publicly-accessible commercial LG TVs often configure those televisions to function in Free-To-Guest mode. FTG mode limits what channels and settings a user has access to, so they cannot use the TV in an unauthorized manner.
If a FTG TV user wants to transfer one TV's settings to another, they can do so by:
- Exporting the first TV's settings as a TLX file
- Installing the TLX file on another FTG TV
Each TLX file contains a list of channels a TV is allowed to access, as well as a list of settings that users are allowed to access. TLX files are model-specific, so a TLX file produced by one TV may not function correctly if used with a different model.
In addition to exporting and installing TLX files on LG commercial TVs, TV administrators can create, edit, and open TLX files in LG's free Free-To-Guest File Manager, which is available to download from LG.com.
How to open a TLX file
You can open and edit a TLX file in LG Free-To-Guest File Manager (Windows). To do so:
- Open LG Free-To-Guest File Manager.
- Select the Open button that appears in the TLX File section.
- Navigate to and open your TLX file.
To install a TLX file on an LG FTG TV, first, ensure the TV is the same model as the TV that exported the TLX file. Then, place the TLX file on a USB drive, connect that USB drive to your FTG TV, and follow the instructions included with your TV to access the Learn from TV option.
