adb connect "tv ip"
adb shell
pm list
pm disable-user --user 0 "package"

if disable-user don't work, just use "pm disable 'package'"
Hi all!

so far on my not rooted devices I always used the "adb shell pm disable-user" without problems.

A few days ago my TCL 50C715 got updated to v625 and now I cannot disable Rakuten TV, it just get enabled by itself the next time I awake the TV!!! :(

adb shell pm disable-user tv.wuaki.apptv

Anyone has a suggestion? Maybe there is something more I should disable?
FYI this is my current disabled list (most of them auto-disabled because not available for Italy)

adb shell cmd package list packages -d
package:au.com.stan.and
package:com.eros.now
package:com.graymatrix.did
package:com.linecorp.linetv
package:com.netflix.ninja
package:com.tcl.bootadservice

Muting will keep the mute icon on screen: when using an external home theater is annoying! There is something that I wasn't able to find to power of only audio?
So far I select "1" as volume level.
I found the option to power off display...

Setting Up Live TV Pause
Both the US faq and the European one have info that I simply miss on my 50C715
https://support.tcl.com/us-androidt...tting-up-live-tv-pause-on-your-tcl-android-tv
  1. While you are on the Antenna TV input, press the Options button on your TCLAndroid TV remote control
  2. Scroll down and select Live TV Pause
I have even changed the display language but I do not have any "PVR" or "TV pause"

Am I missing something or the option is simply not available (even if advertised) on my TV?

I assume you connect a USB flash drive to the tv, right?

Hello Good afternoon, I am a new user of a tcl c715 europe and the network update tells me that it was in the latest software but on the official page of tcl was the RT51 Android P V625 with which I update via usb inside this folder was the file V8-R851T02-LF1V625.018435 and reading the forum and updated to the latest 635 V8-R851T02-LF1V635.018655 had many changes but my decoder for hdmi the audio was not synchronized and later 636 V8-R851T02-LF1V636.018672 with its Data reset to speed up the system in clean and at the moment the 636 was corrected the desynchronization very well although it has fewer options than if it had in the 635 in terms of image adjustment also install google tv but it still has some bug although passable now and back to android tv then I see that there are two that I can't find the eu v999 and the R508 I don't know if they are better than the 636 if someone explains to me a little which is currently the best while waiting for android 11
And one last question, how is pip activated, I have it activated for the apps but I don't know how to activate the function, I had read that with the home button, but this takes me to android tv

Sure, but it's not empty: I use it for the local OTA and export/import TV channel.
Right now I'm going to update from v625 to 635 with the same USB stick!
BTW: do you mean a "real" drive? I'm using a 16gb SanDisk Cruzer!
No, a pendrive should be ok. It has enough free space?

Hello. I have a 43P715 model purchased in Poland. This model does not support PVR / Timeshift. However, when looking for the specification of this model on foreign websites, the specification includes PVR support. Probably the lack of service in Europe is caused by some regulation of the European Union. Is there any way to unlock PVR functionality? For example, changing Project ID?

Edit: I changed my Project ID number from EU to ME/RUS. PVR has appeared on the menu.

Found this guide.
062598 + MENU + ID

Myy current ID is 218 (55C715 in Germany). Does this have to be changed to 317 or 326, for example?
The IDs are specific to each model !!!!

Yea, but the things is when you will update firmware,you will get all apps for this region
and PVR is available only for digital non encrypted channels.

It's already mention a few times here.
Use search in this thread.

Great, that will answer my question too!! Sorry, me too I didn't try a search with "PVR" (because on 99% of platform it's a "too short string")

BTW: this thread is now really huge and looking for specific solutions isn't handy... ;) I think that another, SMALLER, with just some sort of FAQ (and closed to users's replies!) will be easier to use!

    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.

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

    Update version : V638
    Date of publication / upload: 21/05/2021

    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
