hello, I think I have to speak in English (i'm french), sorry ^^, for your TV I had an error message on my 65c815, I had a hard time making it go, I did a hard flashing by .img, and also by ota, and finally reset with the android menu,
I also did a reset with the hidden menu you put yourself on option / image / contrast then type 1 9 5 0, by placing on the contrast bar
test all solution, bon courage

Oi pessoal,
Este é meu primeiro post aqui, estou com problema no meu tcl 55c715. Eu tenho um apk de iptv chamado OTT PLATINUM, após a última atualização ele parou de funcionar. Tentei reinstalá-lo e fiz um reset na minha tv, mas sem resultado. Alguém pode me ajudar.View attachment 5677561
Olá, tenho uma 65C715 e ao instalar uma versão do android 11 o app de IPTV não funciona, então para seu OTT Plattinum funcionar, desinstale o V 715 android 11 e instale o V662 android 9 (última versão). Boa sorte.

Mod. Translation: Hello, I have a 65C715 and when installing a version of android 11 the IPTV app doesn't work, so for your OTT Plattinum to work, uninstall V 715 android 11 and install V662 android 9 (latest version). Good luck.

Is it possible to enable Dolby Vision support with Dolby Vision content (such as some Netflix titles) with 55P8M TV via changing software or Project ID. I am thinking that Dolby Vision is only disabled via software due to licensing restriction (no Dolby Vision Licence hence only HDR10 is enabled)

Currently running V8-R851T02-LF1V662.019382 (Android 9)

Hello I had the same problem
I was able to find a solution... by installing version 1.8 of OTT Platinum, and it works great.

Hi guys,

In Brazil, we have a rebranded OEM TCL called SEMP. SEMP and TCL are partners here and the SEMP SK5300 TV has the same V8-R851T02 firmware/board.

I've updated a few days go from V660 (A9) to V715 (A11).

My impressions:

Pros:
Image seems a little bit better. Better contrast and black levels.

My Sony home theater is working at the same way before via ARC. Perfectly. I always use the AUTO mode, it passthrough correctly the Dolby Digital 5.1 in Netflix, Amazon Prime e HBO MAX. The ARC delay is lower now.

Refreshed icons in interface like arc volume and others. Fonts seems more sharp.

Cons:

I believe that Android 11 is heavier than 9, it makes the TV a little bit more sluggish, marginally, but I feel. My emulator performance using Faster Open GL in EPSXE is the same as before, I still can plan play PS1 games in HIGH graphics at 1.5x overclock CPU PSX.

Overall I think the update was a great choice since I didn't find any bugs in TV. A more recent OS can grant more apps updates. Thumbs up for TCL.

I'm currently running software version V8-R851T02-LF1V662.019382 (Android 9)

I understand that there a new software OTA update (v715) which is Android 11

Is there any way to prevent this Software Update notification prompt from appearing?

The reason why I don't want v715 is that it has issues with audio passthrough using latest Kodi 19.4 (which I primarily use for media playback). Note that this audio passthrough issue seem to be present on Android 11-based software so I prefer to stick with the latest Android 9-based version.

Here, I didn't found any issue with the audio passthrough, DD are passing fine with ARC. The only issue (present in every firmware that I tested until now) is, if I use the Bypass mode, the stereo PCM audio is very low. So I use auto mode, that automatically convert stereo PCM in DD 2.0 in YouTube, TV Channel, and the sound rocks.

It doesn't cause any trouble, since if the TV channel audio is set to DD 5.1 (In Brazil, many programs of Globo channel is) the audio passthrough normally in 5.1 to my speakers.

Try auto mode.

Edit: In auto mode the TV pass ATMOS correctly too. My setup is 5.1, but the TV automatically converts Atmos in DD 5.1. The experience is incredible in Tidal.

Hi! I'm also from Brazil, and also have a Semp. A SK8300, with latest v715.

The problem with AUTO mode is that it's always send only DD 5.1 over HDMI ARC. Netflix and Amazon Prime has content in DD+ 5.1. Apple TV also has, some of them with DD+ 7.1.

I can get DD+, using BYPASS in audio output settings. This only works with HDMI ARC, and if your receiver/processor supports DD+. Mine is a Denon AVR-2311, which support.

But, sometimes, the DD+ is not been activated. I have to switch to AUTO and switch back to BYPASS to fix.

I never could manage to have DTS working on passthorugh. How did you get this? You receiver trully shows dts?

In auto mode the output is only DD 5.1. This is not an Atmos conversion. No Atmos metadata is been sending, as Atmos object oriented sound metadata requires at least DD+.

Another Brazuca here hehe.. hi my friend, as you can see, in AUTO or BYPASS mode the Dolby Logo shows and this EAC3 sample works, tried both. I can confirm in receiver the DD+.

I'm sorry, no DTS too. I'll edit the text.
About Atmos, of course it's not, my receiver can't decode it too.. But the audio is working with a perfect channel separation in a 5.1 environment. How can it work? I don't know. Give a try to Tidal and test these Atmos content.
