Hey guys,
I have a strange issue with c715(v662) and TS6100 soundbar.
Im using soundbar with hdmi connection.
In every 5, 6 months soundbar volume going too low. Factory reset will solve it.
Normally I use soundbar at 22, 25. After this issue happen, I could get same volume at 62, 65.
Any idea or solution?
Anyone?

So this is an older version? I'm running R51MT05 v488. But this is a newer build date and revision number. When I try and install it it says "Your update package isn't the newest, please check it".

Yup, 488 is bigger number then 335, right ?

I have updated my android tv to google tv from which version I don't remember but I am happy with V496 so far.

Thank you for your help on this community stasiof. I would like to ask you something, are these official updates from TCL? Where do you find it, Is there a TCL website? Also is there changelog of new ota or img updates? Let's say a new version of V496 img released if there was a changelog it would be easier to reset the tv. Thank you.

I've read through page 76 since I bought the tv but there is total of 87 page. Also there is not such information in the initial post in the first page. I could not find those answers I've asked, I am sorry for the trouble I caused.
Maybe not in this thread, probably in bigger thread...

Use search...type "changelog" and read answers.....

Sample....

V496 OTA file added in post #1,640
Just suggest,

If you post new OS. Update,.. could be better if u write down Logs change too.. so all members can see n know what's new dan issues in it. (Just like custom rom for mobile phone thread in XDA)

All new OS that u post here so far..always bring some issues that new member/user of TCL TV was excited to try as newest update without know the Risk.

So members here can considerate it before install it

For my issues..google voice command not work,..and dolby atmos/vision not work properly..

Some TCL Service center dont want to fix this..since your update is NOT official..if it release for global, my tv should detect it autimatically.

This thread now just filled by problem report by update.

And you make this all..

#nooffense

Thats all..

Hi, fellow experts!

Could someone please point me to the direction of latest good firmware for TCL C728K bought as C729 (in the UK).

Mine is currently running Android 9. I heard there is Android 11 available, but doesn't update automatically.

Thank you!

    I bought the 728k because I did not want GTV. Otherwise I would've gotten something else.

    Does anybody have a link to download V8-R51MT02-LF1V191 img or something similar for android 9?
    Only link that I can find is on signal and its not working anymore.


    I want to revert my 50P815 to android 9 in hope to solve my audio issues with the soundbar

    (not V141)
    2
    Update:
    I downloaded the image that stasiof provided (thanks again) and I was determined to go with v191 at my 50P815. On the zip file it contained the instructions on how to reimage your TV and at the end had the following instructions

    Code:
    Press the Settings button (cog icon) in the remote control:
    Press OK on the icon: Picture.
    Then go to the line Advanced settings.
    Scroll down to the line: Brightness settings.
    Scroll down to the line: Contrast.
    With the remote control, do the key sequence: 6 4 2 5
    The special menu appears.
    Go to the line “Reset All” and press OK.
    Go to the line “Reset Shop” and press OK.
    Now unplug the main power cord.
    Wait for ~2 minutes.
    Plug back the main power cord and perform complete installation.

    So before I reimaged the TV
    1. Disconnected the soundbar from the TV
    2. Disconnected the TV box
    3. I executed these steps the steps above.
    4. Configured my google account on TV
    5. Set audio output to passthrough
    6. Enabled CEC on the TV
    7. Connected soundbar and TV box on the TV
    And voila. All audio problems solved. At least for now. I will report again if I get any issues.
    Other TV functionalities operate as expected, I don't see any issues (Dolby Vision, Dolby atmos work - even the application that I had audio issues before works now as it did before the upgrade).


    My conclusion so far V8-R51MT02-LF1V325.020654 work on 50P815 as Runaque has already confirmed. BUT do spend the time required to reset the TV after an upgrade, especially OTA upgrade. It sucks that you need to do redo all your settings but this beats all the time you might need to spend troubleshooting some weird behaviors. stasiof recommended reset already when I first posted that I got issues and I should have listened :D

    55c725 GTV V501 handfree voice assistance not work. How I fix it. thanks

    Anyway here seem to work.. if you mean the "vocal commands".
    Must say that I hate to use features like this,
    so haven't used much more than a few times. Only noticed that this feature is very slow to react after a full reboot and after some time it's still not fast but become usable.

    p.s. I hope that in some future update Rakuten app can be disabled (at least !). Actually the "disable" function is present in the app properties menu, but become enable again after every reboot.. for me Rakuten is like e VIRUS :ROFLMAO:

    Small matter.
    However V501 is deducated for 2022 models, so be happy with small issue (if).
    Update all Google apps....
    so v496 should be the GTV "end of the line" for people who bought a C725 during 2021?

    what about ATV? are 309 and 325 designed for specific model-year combos?

    Today i updated my 65C728 and the IMAX picture mode is gone from the menu, and i really liked the mode for watching 4k blurays and gaming. is this a bug? or have they removed this feature? how can i downgrade ? I tried to put OTA v091 on usb and run update by unpluging and holding power button, but the loding bar gets to 25% ant than says "error" and shuts down. And if i do it trough the tv menu "local update" it says the version is old.
    Look for V083 IMG file.....for downgrade.
    OTA file only update.....
