Hello everyone,

I bought a TCL 75c725 last summer which I am satisfied with. Today I finally received the first TV update after a year...
The TV has downloaded and installed V8-R51MT02-LF1V315.

New options have appeared and in terms of fluidity I find it better than my initial version.

On the other hand, since the update I have lost Dolby and DTS on my bose which is connected in eARC, it remains in LPCM2.0 ... is there a solution to put it back? because temporarily I put back in SPDIF but when I want to put the sound of the TV to 0 the mute logo remains displayed ...
Thanks in advance for your suggestion.

sorry for my english i am french
To get rid of the mute symbol I use the 3.5mm jack plug cut from an old cable in the earphones socket to mute the tv, then just increase the volume slightly.

Hi

I have a 55C725K (so UK version) that has just received an automatic update from TCL recently. Not surprisingly, a tv that worked, now doesnt work properly haha. I cant control my soundbar as it would connect via CEC (it worked fine before), so I've had to resort to plugging a headphone jack in to mute the TV speakers (thanks to the poster above).

Now, I can obviously downgrade back to the previous firmware, but I wondered if anyone has tried the normal C725 firmware on a K (UK version) model and didnt end up bricking the tv or anything, or if its even possible to load non UK firmware?

I appreciate this has been asked before, but I couldnt find anything recent, so just wondered if things have changed?

My TV:

V8-R51MT02-LF1V143
ATV 9
C725K


cheers

Hello,
My TCL 50P615 recently upgraded to android11 and since then the OTT Platinum app that no longer opens.
Does anyone know of a compatible APK version ?
Or a way to get the TV to revert to android 9 ??

Hello, im using TCL C725 with V477 firmware, i have a problem with the display that showing green and purple texture, while playing certain games in 4k resolution.. many TCL user has this problem like shown in this reddit thread : https://www.reddit.com/r/reddeadredemption/comments/9lfccn
according to the reply on that thread, many ppl fix the problem by changing the picture size, from auto to normal, but i cant find the picture size menu on my C725. all i can find is aspecr ratio menu that doesnt have "normal" options, only 16:9, 4:3, Zoom, Zoom wide, etc..

did u know which firmware that still have picture size menu? can my TV downgrade to that firmware?

Thanks for replying.. im sorry but no, even tcl official website put instruction to change picture size https://support.tcl.com/roku-tv/how-to-adjust-your-picture-size
And some youtubers also show how they change the picture size on their tcl tv.. but the newest firmware didnt have that option again.. if its possible..i just wanna downgrade my firmware so i can have picture size menu

Hi

Thanks for the reply, but I already have the firmware.

I wanted to know if recently anyone knows if normal C725 firmware works on UK versions? The most recent "K" firmware you've listed is bugged and worse than the previous firmware.

    I have a 55p TCL C725, and it's on the latest version of Google TV, V496... I'm noticing some problems with the streaming channels.... For example, on Amazon Prime, Youtube, Hbo and etc... I notice a slight stutter in the audio, it's noticeable, but it's very fast, as if it were a 1 second stop, as if the movie was silent for a few thousandths and came back... does anyone else notice this problem?
    I already changed to v488 ,v477 and I notice the same thing.

    I would not recommend you to move to Google TV, I think that Android TV has a much cleaner interface.
    GoogleTV V488 added an option to switch the TV home page to "app-only mode"
    it disables the assistant and all recommendations, resulting in a snappier experience - similar to the one whe had with AndroidTV

    Try to reflash firmware.
    No special method to display,anyway Netflix will work.
    You have also V272 and V309 IMG file...
    Thanks for help @stasiof & @Rajsko .... After update ESN was removed... Then using service menu i reset the device and done shop reset. After restart and initial setup, same ESN was restored by device itself.
