New Update 653​


The new Update 653 is available, I think Stasiof will add a link in a moment. I don't know the changes yet and I haven't tried 653 yet, so I don't publish the link (for now)

- For now, I only see audio updates (HDMI output) and subtitle optimization for TV.
- Some TCL apps have been updated against 650. (Comparison after clean installation of both versions.)

Oh god, I hope the HDMI Audio output update is to fix audio lag/lip sync issues.. I just checked Telegram and no mention of v653 yet...

cheers

About to update, just copying to USB. hold tight!

Done. Updated fine. Watching Prime (Windows Universal app) from PC before and after, maybe the audio delay is not quite as bad, time will tell with more streaming testing of various apps and youtube. Have only tried audio via TV and not my external AVR yet.

Netflix from PC over hdmi seems quite fine.

I do find though at times audio is in sync for a bit after a restart. Keen to see what others think.

The Clear LED Motion does not seem to flicker as much, easier on the eyes (not that I use it)..

v650 I found to be great, lets see how v653 fares over extended use

Thanks guys

@stasiof

Good to see you here alongside the MDL forums!

Last year my brother got the 43 inch variant of the iFFALCON K31, which seems to be a rebranded version of the TCL K31S. It was long stuck to the terrible V3xx series firmware, so I decided to take a look for manual update options. Thanks to the OTA tracking by you guys in this thread, I managed to update it to V650 and achieved a noticeable performance bump.

Will update to V653 in the weekend. :cowboy:

Hello,

I have a problem playing audio on my panasonic home theater. After a while, my sound switches to the rear speaker. When I press the mute button twice, the sound returns to normal for a while.
I have already tried perhaps 5 different FWs here and to no avail.
Factory reset and shop reset.
The TV was already in the service room where they replaced my motherboard. The problem still persists, I don't know what to do anymore.
The sound skips via HDMI ARC and via optical output as well.
I have tried several types of HDMI cables.
I didn't do it on the original thomson TV and when I connect the sound directly through the optical input, for example to a PC or android box, the sound works properly.
My TV TCL 65EP660

If anyone has any advice, I will be very happy. Thank you

We'll, I've been playing heaps a games on PC over my weekend and it's only just occured to me that there seems to be no or a lesser delay in audio delay via my AVR. Gun shots and their sound appear near almost matched. This is good

So HDMI control of my TCL soundbar has improved slightly with 653, it still sometimes switches it on but then goes back to the TV speaker, but the soundbar stays on.

Channels removed from the home screen still appear after turning off the TV here in the UK with Freeview Play.

Hi there, have a new 50C715 which has only done 39 hours. I'm not super happy with the uniformity of the panel in black scenes when the room is dark. See photos attached - does this seem ok? I've shown different angles to try and highlight extent of issue

    Be advised!

    I would suggest NOT to install this Android11 update yet, wait until bugs are sorted out.

    I have 50C715

    Firstly, great to see Android11 on its way! Awesome, cant wait for normal performance and functionality. Good job TCL and anyone else working on updates ;)

    Positive
    I have found that Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) is now available, I have not been able to test to see if it does anything yet​

    Negative - HDMI inputs DO NOT WORK
    I can not get my PC to display a picture. Have tried HDMI 1 and 3. The TV recognises the PC resolution but it can not find a signal. I also notice that the HDMI option for enabling 2.0 is no longer present in the options.​

    Digital TV channel scanning is not possible.​


    As most of use would be gamers on PC or consoles, this is not a viable update as cant play if you can not access the output of your chosen device. Im guessing DVD/bluerays wont work either, from what I can tell, HDMI is broken

    Trying to work out how to revert back to an earlier Android9 update, as I can't use my PC where I have the files lol. Lucky I have a work PC with me, just trickier..

    V900 works good on my TCL 55EP640...
    Thanks good.

    Its interesting then. 2 users having R007 (v900) working on xxEP640
    2 not working on xxC715
    1 not working in xxP615

    Is it better suited and made for only specific TV models? Eg just the EP640?

    The HDMI stopped working for me on this version as well... though my power on remote stopped working a couple versions ago. I had to use voice command. But then, voice command didnt work on new version. After downgrading way back to v453, my power still didnt work on remote. I tried repairing and unplugging tv, swapping batteries, even doing a factory reset and trying to pair remote in fresh setup flow... nothing worked until i found the exact process. I unplugged TV power, removed batteries, powered up tv, and did not place batteries in remote until TV fully booted (this was on TCL's troubleshooting steps) -- and it worked!

    Hello today i want Suggest & share TCL C715 settings for Xbox series x, at first never enable HDR for this tv disable HDR on xbox .

    also you need to enable in Xbox settings -- > ALLOW YCC 4.2.2 and use 10 BIT color depth this settings did not exceed hdmi 2.0 bandwidth also has less banding .

    tv setting must be

    SDR
    Game mode : ON for lowest input lag
    brightness: 100
    Contrast : 100
    Dynamic Contrast : Low or Hight ( I prefer High )
    local contrast : low
    Black stretch : 0
    Dynamic Backlight : off
    color : 45
    black level : 48
    Sharpness : 0
    color space : auto
    color temperature : -1
    Gamma : 0

    HDR : X not good for this tv

    with this settings tv gets darkest blacks as possible and brightest whites , picture are fantastic clear and 3 dimensional, fantastic result on forza horizon 4 and more

    I 100% recommend to try this settings on this tv and xbox if you want bright and Crystal clear image

    Another Argentinian here.
    As I got tired of waiting for the OTA to appear, with my adb logcat running, and it never did ...
    I thought: "why don't I edit the ota v213 url to see if it works?", and it did. :p
