You appear to be running the very original software for that TV. There have been many updates since that version

Hello,
I'm a little late to the party here but I was wondering if there were any updates for the 55S434-CA, firmware V8-R851T102-LF1V458.018656? I ask because i've been stuck on android 9 since I bought it with a securty patch of sept 5, 2021. Was hoping to at least get the security updated as the network update keeps saying nothing is available.

Hey, Can anyone confirm that these GTV updates can be installed on the C725 R51MT02? Or only on the R51MT05?

Hello, I have tcl 50C725 and from version 443 of google tv to even the newest 464 I am not getting the information that the game mode, the so-called ALLM, is turned on when starting the PS5 console. Why is the TV not showing this message and is this mode enabled?
I will add that on soft 277,427,435 there was information that the game mode was turned on.
Thank you in advance for your help.

One question for those who have installed firmware GTV 443 or 464.
When playing DD+ format (EAC3) is there 5.1 sound or not?

    Back from the assistance shop with a BRAND NEW GOOGLE TV.
    They gave me a brand new 43C725 TV with GTV firmware installed.
    Even in the box it was written Google TV (previous box was android TV).
    Anyway they told me TCL are changing panels because they are having this kind of issue.
    Let's see how this tv will be

    Here are some photos of 43c 275 firm 468 GTV with quick start
    Same as mine.
    TCL will contact me to arrange an appointment for technical assistance in my home.
    If you have the same problem, change the tv at the shop or contact TCL immediately.
    I will update this thread [or maybe open a new one] as soon as I have news.

    Hi Stasiof, can you fix the Netflix UI with blurry text and subtitles? Netflix app is more blurry than other brand Google TV/Android TV, thank you so much!
    I am not TCL firmware developer..... :ROFLMAO:

    On other hand...no TV model, no firmware version noted from you.......so how ?

    When did you buy your TV? I bought it at the end of January, and I experienced all these issues after a couple of months.
    Back then I had ATV fw. But still had to disable quick boot to get the TV working.
    I asked for assistance on Thursday, June 9th, they asked me to send some pictures, and yesterday (Friday June 10th) they wrote me back. They said a technician will call me back to arrange an appointment in my house.
    If you have the same issue, try to write to TCL. I think this is a hardware problem.
    And I don't want a TV that cannot be updated.

    It's definitely a software thing as it only started happening on recent updates. As @solman67 says V435 works perfectly and I've been reverting back to it each time. On the TCL Telegram chat there are quite a few people with the same issue so let's hope they get it fixed. We just need to hassle customer service 😉

    About quick start failure 43C725, this morning the service center wrote me they want to see an photo of the actual software i have installed in my tv. I told them that with the last 2/3 updates of GTV, in my case, the quick start does not work and the tv starts with the stripes. And that now i am in version V435 and that the quick start works perfectly. They told me that they will translate this information to the technicians to find a solution. In my case i will keep the tv and not change it because i am 99% sure that its an software problem and changing the tv will not solve it. Lets see what happens. If any of the here affected has news, please inform. Thanks!

    There are certain regions where OTA is not available for years & neither on TCL local support. AP region hasn't. NA & EU are lucky though where updates are available via OTA or local TCL has it on support page.
