LG xxLA620 timeshift problems

Is this normal LG timeshift behaviour, or is it my TV at fault ?

Putting Automatic Timeshift to ON:

1) I am possible to record only first 1h30min of currently viewing program(s), and after that (let say at 3h), I can only get back to -3h in past and untill -1h30 in past, and not into let say 20min into past (from this moment). Is this normal ?

2) On the top of that, most of the time I cant even get to this whole 1h30 timeshift window buffer, because after some switching of programs, doing REV,FF, swicthing again it stops at let say 8m30sec and doesnt record anything at all !! PAUSE button is not working, switching of programs is working, but looking into timeshift record I only get these old 8min30sec window. Powering off TV helps, but only again for some another minutes timeshift (or occasionaly for the whole 1h30, which isnt doing correctyl as I wrote before).

It is very irritating, and making timeshift unusable. Yes, I have latest FW.
I am using DVB-C. I have 500gb WD USB 3.0 disk connected to USB HDD port of TV.
Doesnt matter if QUALITY is set to HIGH or LOW, or AUTODELETE is ON or OFF.

3) Paused timeshift viewing (when succesfully done) is paused only for 10 minutes, then it is automaticaly self played forward.

Are these 3 things happening to your LA620 (or any other 2013 model), also ?
