OTA V094....firmware is global....flash by "Local update".
Thank you! Didn't see it because 75X915 didn't match "x915"...

But seems to have fixed my Wandavision HDR codec issue... :)
Will see if it fixes the SmartHDR grayout on high-black scenes...

    V634 is a lot faster compared with previous builds.

    Does anyone else have a broken source selection window? It only shows two options: an item without tag and "Android TV Home"

    Try to Reset and Reset All in Service menu or just reflash again (or Factory reset).

    Yes, I did that, I try every image option with no luck. The funny thing is that in v625 with the exact same parameters there is no buzzing with brightness less than 90.
    Strange, I slide my to "0" , no sound at all.
    Mostly complain about darkness, so high brightness is OK...haha.
    My setting is also on 90.

    Not all Astro channels had Dolby audio and if have ,must set in Astro decoder first.
    Try Astro ch. 104,105,106,....111,113,....400,404,411, 551,553,555, 811,....

      Greetings! I also suffer from ghosting on my c717. Also noticed that R508 almost got away from this problem. Now I installed V638. Cjukfiecm xnj yf ytq yt nfr rfr yf K508, but tolerable. I wanted to ask what settings do you make for calibration? I use my TV as a monitor. I am writing through a translator, I am from Russia.
      The picture settings I use for C715 post calibration with patterns

      Picture Mode Movie

      Backlight or Brightness : 50 (The more you increase this it washes out true colors, In brighter rooms you may increase upto 67)

      Black Level : 56 ( I was not able to achieve reference black at 50, so using the pattern the best lowest black level without crushing the details was 54)

      Contrast : 89, this is best to get maximum contrast set. An higher contrast produced more washed out images and at 89 I was able to get the whites blend closely with other colors.

      Color: 54, this was the best I could configure using the RGB blue mode. At default 50, the uniformity of the color was not good. So setting to 54 produces natural colors.

      Sharpness 0

      Dynamic Color off., Dynamic Contrast Off, Dynamic Brightness + off, Local Contrast Low

      Auto format On, Overscan off.

      Tint : 50, at color set to 54, the tint was accurate at 50 using the flashing color bars pattern in the blue mode.

      White balance 2 point: Gain Red -1, Green -2, Blue 0 Offset Red 0, Green 0, Blue 2. I adjusted white balance with 80% gray for gain and 30% gray for offset. The RGB values at 80% gray was nearly equal R 204 G 204 B 202 and at 30% gray it was R 76, G 76 B 75

      20 Point white balance : Off

      Try these settings and see if it works for your C715.

      I also use almost identical settings that seem universal to me (55C715), or::

      [MOVIE]
      • Brightness : Night 38 & Day 50
      • Contrast : 68
      • Color : 54 & Color Dynamic : OFF
      • Calarity : 0 & Digital Noise and reduction : OFF
      • Motion : OFF
      • Black Level 50
      • White balnace 2 points :
      - R-Offset : -1
      - G-Offset: -2
      - B-Offset: -4


      Only in the menu (1950) did I slightly increase the contrast at the highest level for better lighting, as some films were very dark with a contrast of even 100:

      • Parameter setings → Picture Curve → Contrast :
      Curve_100 : from 128 to 158

      Previously I had to pull the lighting through Black Level, by increasing the contrast now I can leave the "Black level [GAMA CURBE]" to 50 .

      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
