Good morning guys. I've had the C835 TV for about 4 days now. I installed the FW V474 that I got from the telegram channel. It's all working perfectly except the connection to my nvidia RTX 3070 graphics card. The screen is flickering. It's not an HDMI cable. I bought three new ones specifically for HDMI 2.1. It bothers and disturbs too much. Also, there is no option for 144hz. I don't know if the problem is with this FW or something with the TV. I'm downloading the V473 version and thinking of installing it to see if it fixes these glitches. If anyone can help with anything on these issues, I would greatly appreciate it.

What is the difference between the OTA update files on telegram and the one we get from the menu (About->update) ? I think you should wait a new firmware or reinstall drivers and reset your TV
99% of the time resetting TV fix these issues

Are there differences between the drivers posted on telegram and those downloaded directly from TV? I did not know. Now, for example, the screen has stopped flickering. I have already reinstalled the Nvidia drivers. If it continues, I will reset the tv. Thanks for the answer.

The flashing of the screen stopped, however, still without the 144hz. I don't know what else to do to get my Nvidia control panel to offer this option.

Hi everyone 🤜

I need Your help, becouse i am completly "tango down" at my fight with my TV. I buy TCL 58p635 on R51MT05 with firmware v483, region Polish, but have lots of bugs, (i do not understand why it is on R51MT05 when at Telegram instructions tell that P635 is R51AT01 and at whatsup guy says it is R51MT05...) i change firmware to v501 from TCL telegram for r51mt05, flash it img, reset shop, reset all and problems still "on air", also i have lost couple functions which i had at v483 like auto picture control. What best i can do? Which soft flash? Or where i can found v483 to back to factory state of tv... I searched internet but i can not find v483 or something else for 58p635 😭
Does any one can hel me?
(Sorry for my poor english)

Hi, at the launch of the tv there was a problem with the nvidia cards to activate the 144hz, in tests that i saw online it was ok with AMD but not NVIDIA. On the other hand i don't know if it is with all nvidia cards or not. I have an AMD card but I haven't tested 144hz yet, just 120.
You also have to change to 8bits colors for 4k 144hz, in 10bits you can only have 4k 120hz.

Good Morning. I changed to 8bit/RGB or YCbCr444/8 and the 144hz option still doesn't appear. Well, I will continue researching and testing possibilities that are presented to me here on the forum. Thanks.

I don't know about P635, but IMG firmwares version 481 and 488 for RT51MT05 on Telegram have (P63x) in the file name, maybe it means something...you can try those.
Also you can describe "lot of bugs" more, but maybe it is normal, we all noticed some bugs in TCL firmwares here..

Thx, for reply, I try as You suggest 481 and 488, but still problems not solved.
Problem no1 is that even if i turn off all the picture quality buttons, like auto intelligent picture, mpeg noise, dynamic contrast etc. after some time (not the same, once its 5 hours, once its 1 minute) and watching only TV, and do not touch anything, picture and voice freezing, and TV restarts, sometimes it freez when change channel.
When i turn on picture quality buttons, it is freezing after couple minutes.

TV freez only at TV mode, when at Google TV mode (netflix, YT, Disney+, even games) its everything ok. I am not specialist, but i think problem is faulty TV app from tcl which we can find in applications, it is not from google but from tcl (or from google but changed by tcl).

Problem no2 that TV not save settings like turn off Overscan, i turn it off, but when i turn off tv and turn it on, overscan is on.

Of course i have more problems with this TV, but they are smaller and i can live with them, but the 2 above are make me crazy...

And if you install v508 OTA firmware. is it better or worse?
I have 55C630, which is also RT51MT05, but I didn't try the TV mode yet (I use only apps, including internet TV, and Fire TV stick). I suppose I should connect an antenna sometimes and test it too to see what kind of bugs I get :)

Today i were install v501 IMG, clean off, reset all, reset shop, and after that v508 OTA from USB and also reset all, reset shop, and for me, nothing changes for better, still the same freezing trouble at TV mode.

Hi lapist,

Thank you very much! Last night after hours of trying, when I removed all the cables from tv(few HDMI and optics), finally got into recovery. And now everything is back to normal. Now its on 470 version, do I need to go for 474 or stay?
Exactly the same issue.... Bought new 65C835 with a factory SW - V438. No new OTA update available (at least in Bulgaria). I've installed the OTA v474 with local update - all went fine, until I powered off the TV completely. Then after the boot, TV was going back to the country selection screen, every time I completed the "pair remote control" screen.
The only way I was able to get out of this loop, was to use the only one custom firmware on telegram for this platform ( thanks for the developer).
After I got the TV working, I was able to install v747.
Not sure if it is related to the fact that we /I are upgrading the TV +36 versions of the FW at once, but I do not find it normal to have that on 2 non related and connected occasions.
PS: Of course I was playing with fire as there was no official OTA update.
PS2: @stasiof - the Local update is working with USB3 flash drive as well. However I spent 1 hour (formatting 3 pen drives) in finding out that formatting the USB drives in FAT32 under Linux ( at least Mint) gets the usb drive not recognised by the TV.
When I formatted the USB flash drive under Win - there was no problem.
Kind regards
Krassi

Using latest V508 GTV for my P725 TCL. Sounder (LG SJ4) does not work tidy with TV. Using ARC and PCM Audio, audio is very quiet. Hardly any bass from subwoofer. Tried optical cable and Bluetooth which results in the same quiet volume.

TV Speakers are loud though.

Tried reverting back to AndroidTV, same results. Before I switched from default OEM ATV. Sound bar was. loud and booming.

Do you know if the P639, C639, P739 and C739 models, which are the model numberes sold on Amazon EU, are virtually identically to the ...35 model, and can use the same firmware?

Additionally, can you confirm (I understand "yes" from page 1, but want to be sure) that if I'm getting 43", they're all going to be equally slow and limited to 2GB of RAM, even if I get the "7" series? (Meaning that many of the distinctions I see between C635 and C735 really don't apply at 43", not even 120Hz, right?)

C735 43" and 50" is R51MT05 platform (C635 55" and above 120Hz DLG).
55" and above is T615T03 platform (3/32 Ram/Rom, 120/144 Hz) .

Hello,
I'm new here in the TV section.

My question is: I ordered a EU/German Version 65'' RC630X1 with Roku TV on it. Does this one support DLG just like the Google TV Version or is this feature limited to US/Australian whatever models as I can't find information on DLG on either (Roku oder Google TV) Versions on the german TCL webpage.

And is it possible to flash the Roku TV version with the Google TV update packages theoretically?

Thank you alot!

Got 65" C935 couple weeks ago. It came with v747. Overall good TV. Got one reboot so far and a couple of freezes so I'm hoping that software will get better.

One thing that is killing me is that preloaded buttons on 'smart' remote are not registered by system as button presses so as far as I know they cannot be remapped. There is a workaround with system logs and automate so I'll probably play around with it when I have time.

Edit:
Another thing that bothers me is audio output in Auto mode. I have soundbar via eARC connected but in the evenings I use bluetooth headphones. I have to manually switch audio output to bluetooth and then back to Auto when I'm done or soundbar doesn't work. I assumed it would auto connect to bluetooth when in Auto mode and then put audio through soundbar when headphones are not connected but that isn't the case.

    No one test the beta version..
    This is a forum for people who do exactly that. Developing and testing different firmwares and other forms of software development. If people didn't do that then you wouldn't have a forum to whinge on. Everybody is different and everybody has different things they enjoy doing, so I'd say yes there is people that care about it despite the fact that you may not.

    I have tried your suggestion but the result suggests Youtube videos based on "Play Store" or "Google Play Store". The search result does not bring up the actual playstore application. I have the same problem since day 1. Why the Google Play store app is not visible? And another thing, why when ai search for a game title i never get any results back???
    Install this apk....Play store will appear in home page...
