Hi short summary I updated the firmware on my X925K originally V129 to V143. After update, Dolby Vision too dark (blur) No Dolby Atmos on Netflix. Tried all settings, all resets, no improvement.Finally, I went back to the V129 and everything works.
I also found Dolby Vision too dark after updating to V143:cry:

I've been trying this version for a few hours and it's great, better than GTV v435. Even Quick start works well.

Hello, I have TCL C725 and Google TV v488 software and I noticed that when playing a 4K movie on the TV player, the image was too stretched. Can it be fixed somehow? I tried to change the image formats but it only works when watching the movie and if I turn the movie off and then on again, the image is stretched again. Has anyone encountered this problem? Thank you in advance for the information. I will add that the image is displayed correctly on the VLC player.

I have a 50C725, Android TV. How can I switch to Google TV. What is the IMG starting version to use?
And also the sequence to do so. I forget the post where someone gave detailed instruction. Since C725 is different. I might be wrong tho.
Thanks.

Hello, I have a tcl q747 (V8-T615T03-LF1V418. 000073)

When I turn on the tv and go to hdmi to play Nintendo switch, the screen goes black for a couple of seconds and the image comes back. That happens about two or three times and then it stops happening, until the next day that I use the switch again.

Someone knows something about it?

First, you check your firmware, if is T615T01 or T615T03.
T615T01 is Android TV..latest is V096
T615T03 is Google TV...latest is V462

Change from ATV to GTV (or opposite),
only with T615T03 IMG file (or T615T01).

I also have a C725, if you want to switch to Google TV, just install the image file, it doesn't matter which version, preferably the latest v488.

How to IMG upgrade
1. Format a USB Flash drive using FAT32.
2. Download the zip file containing the software for your TV to your computer.
3. Unzip/extract the software.
4. Copy the software file to the root catalogue of the USB flash drive.
5. Unplug the power cord to your TV.
6. Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the back of the TV.
7. Press and hold the power button on the TV, not the remote.
8. While holding the button on the TV, plugin the power cord of the TV again.
9. When the software install message appears on the TV, release the power button.
10. Do not unplug the power cord during the software install. When the initial setup screen appears on the TV the software install is completed.
This method will reset Android settings and installed apps.

    Hi, this is not for C725 ?
    Any OTA after Gtv 496 ?
    Ciao
    no. This is for C728. Install the V496 via img file.

    EDIT #01: I just installed V496 on my TV and I'm stuck on TCL registration after a quick boot. It also happened when I installed the V488.
    I'm going back to previous Firmware.

    EDIT #02: I installed V482 [V435 img + V482 OTA via local USB] and TV is again working.

    As I read on Telegram, some net TVs don't support newer firmwares. I should check again the Product ID (or whatever it is called). Some were speaking about panels built in 2021. I'll update this reply as soon as I can.

    Hello good evening. I have a TCL P725. I can't get it to work normally with any version. I tried versions v477, v481, v488, v496, they all have the same problem, when Dolby Vision is activated it starts to automatically raise and lower the brightness, super annoying. I went back to v418, but objects or people have an aura around them, like a phantom specter around people or objects. Can someone tell me if there is a stable version without these problems or any solution? Please

    Hi stasio..do u have any idea/solution for me,..please?
    I already posted you, to try V482.
    Read description to flash proper (older) IMG file first ,as update from newer version is getting black screen.
    To know more, type V482 in search for this thread....
