Does Chromecast work for you way better than in previous releases?
In my case, i see a great difference between my google Chromecast und the built-in Chromecast in this TV.
When I send videos from my computer to my TV, they're usually played without problem in my google Chromecast, but with way worse quality on my built-in Chromecast in this TV.
Yesterday I tried again with latest version, and it seems way better than before.

My sudenly recover, after forcing first by button on remote.
After that just start initiate by words.
Which button do you mean?
I'm talking about "OK Google" detection while the TV is sleeping
It was very convenient to just say "Turn TV on" , coming to room..but unfortunately after i updated from v387 to v609 - it stopped . I'm talkinga about 50C715 model. Goggle voice should work without remote control

Okay Google to turn on TV with voice control is broken since many many versions.

Hi guys,
Im in Indonesia, I have TCL A8 series which runs on this firmware too.
After updating, the audio passthrough if the source is PCM, I'm getting very low volume on my amp. Do you guys have the same problem?
and btw after Disney+ also updated their app about a month ago, I'm only getting PCM if playing 5.1 audio. Only Netflix, air TV and default player can passthrough the 5.1 audio. Is there any workaround to get Disney+, Amazon Prime to have 5.1 again?

Yes, I have the same problem too. But it was always like that.

I hope, someone can help me.

As you can see at the attached pictures, my TCL C715 shows in the lower left corner hardware/software informations. They are flashing and are always there, even when i want watch TV, films etc.
What can i do here, that this disappear?

It came up after i am at the Service Menu and hit the wrong button.

Maybe this could help you:

Does not appear and disappear some text at the bottom left for a few seconds? If that's so... it's a setting (Sita P mode) that sometimes enables itself (once happened to me when the TV was suspended and I unplugged it without powering it off first). If that's so, you need to enter the hidden factory menu (Options > Image > Brightness > Contrast and type 9735), go to the option "9-Sita P mode" and turn it OFF.

    To me, v395 is the best firmware.
    Im currentky using the C8 model in Vietnam
    C8 series are edge lit QLED and C715 is a back lit QLED. There could be variation on the picture quality when comparing both models. I have attached a calibration file for watching HDR content on C81 models. I purchased this file for my reference and it has been done by a professional calibrator.

    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 .

    Hello.
    For those who are interested in the latest update, I would like to share with you:

    Update version : V638

    CHANGE :
    - Return to the previous menu. Menus that you may have seen in previous versions.
    - It can be seen that there has been a change in the files for the shield/network card. (which can be Wi-fi, LAN or BT)
    - There has also been a change for the GUI environment. Unfortunately, the exact items cannot be displayed.

    If you can't download, try again, because an EU server error will occur.

    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
