If so can someone please inform me how to do this.. Step by step.. thank you all in advance.

You typically use the tv's built in dlna feature but with such you only get a list of channels, no guide (only android tv (or firetv) tv's have an app) I believe lg often refers to such as smartshare but also may be photos and videos. Another term to look for is media server. Last time used such it just showed up as source on the bottom colored tiles.

It varies, state your exact model number... as i said last time i used an LG tv it showed up as a source on the colored tiles at the bottom. On some i have even had to insert a usb drive with videos to even attempt to get to the player. For troubleshooting even seeing such, make sure you are on a wired connection and i also suggest a switch rather than router between the hdhomerun and the tv to help ensure nothing being blocked for detecting the tuner. If you have a windows pc, you may wish to look at their smartshare server and see how the tv connects to it as the process is the same the hardest part (other than putting up with the terrible interface) is getting the tuner detected as frequently it won't see many dlna servers. Also if given a choice make sure to select videos as some clients require one to expect a video when clicking on the "file".

You also may wish to favorite channels to reduce the list (choose the favorite folder from the main list)
