I successfully installed v715 but the interface is still the old one. How can i change it to the new Google TV interface? I thought the new interface is build in with A11.
V715 is Android 11 and not Google TV, but interface you can get with VPN or wait for Google to be available in your region....
In general R851T02 platform, I beleive, is not getting Google TV firmware.

The 2021/2022 C(series) models that were released here all came with the new Google TV interface. I thought that updating my C716 will bring the new interface since they technically use the same firmware. Too bad i guess. Or maybe not cause I read that the GTV interface is sluggish.

All 2021/22 models are different platform and not using same firmware....

Update_V718_RU.zip — Is there a version for non-Russian language systems too?

I have the same issue with my setup (TCL C815, Sony HG700) when using A11 (v701, v715, R815) .. So i reverted back to A9 v662 and i have no issues with Auto-On .. now I can switch on the Surround when I want to :) ..

V718 was just released. IMG only, initially, as usual.

If you decided to give a try on it, and if it fixes the "HDMI-CEC Power On" bug, I will update with this IMG.

Usually, I wait for the ORA upgrade version...

Just Downloaded .. Installing it now as i type this msg... will update with my findings soon... :)
Sadly the "HDMI-CEC Power On" bug still remains on v718 ... It's worse now getting a "Black Screen" flickering when turning "On/Off" the Sony Soundbar (HDMI1-ARC) while watching Amazon Prime on my Shield (HDMI2).. Which didn't happen when on v662 .. :-(

    Hi,

    After try some firmwares and configurations, dolby atmos its not full implemented in my c715 with v718 firmware and a tcl 8132 soundbar.

    Netflix> dolby atmos ok
    Hbo> dolby atmos ok
    Intern aplication > dolby atmos ok

    Disney> Impossible
    Kodi> impossible
    Vlc> impossible

    Any idea how to fix dolby atmos for all apps?

    Thanks

    This might be a long shot to get an answer. I have the TCL model V8 R851T02-LF1V606.017688. Currently on Android 9 but I would like to upgrade it to a newer firmware.
    Which one these that are currently in this thread is compatible? I can't figure it out and I don't want to brick my tv :)
    If anyone can point me to the right direction along with a guide? Thank you :love:

    UPDATE: I managed to find a V715 in the thread and updated the TV. I will test it in the next few days to see if there are any issue of compatibility.

    This could help you
    Much appreciate. Can't understand why people will spend time arguing and justifying not giving links by asking newbies to search and self-help.

    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

    I have a 75c815k (uk) and have just updated to V715 android 11 software, I was previously on V645 the current official TCL European software and had spent many many hours tweaking the settings to get what I consider the best picture quality to suit my taste and eye. My son has an LG 77" c1 oled which cost him roughly 4 times more than my TCL and whilst my picture is not quite up to his with my settings I think it comes very close and thought I would share them if anyone wants to try them. I like quite a vibrant picture so have used the standard mode with the following settings for SDR ( in movie mode the same settings give a slightly softer look)
    Brightness/backlight 45,
    Contrast 90,
    Black level 40,
    Dynamic contrast off, black stretch off, brightness+ on, local dimming low, gamma 0
    Colour 48, tint 50, dynamic colour on, colour temp -1
    Sharpness 50, digital noise and noise reduction off
    Gradation clear (not on V645) low
    Motion clarity on, led motion clear off, judder reduction off
    Expert calibration settings untouched apart from colour space set to auto.

    My Hdr settings are similar although brightness and contrast left at 100 and colour pulled back to around 46
    Dolby Vision left alone.

    These settings were originally set on V645 but seem ok with V715

    As with most things picture quality is subjective but these settings I believe would give a much better baseline to the out of box settings which are way overblown in my opinion.
