being then that 'R' is a custom update, does the TV need to be rooted or have at least an locked bootloader?

Any restrictions in alternating between V and R, either up or down versions? Ta

Hello all!

Sorry for not checking all of the thread, but I will be getting

TLC 55C715K

Would you have any settings to share/any tweaks that I could do after receiving the TV?

Maybe an off topic, but i need a solution for it.
Recently got a New Apple TV Box. Been a user for a really long time, i like it. But my problem is that if i allow to the tv to use my Apple TV remote my TV wont turn off just the box. But when i turn on my Apple box the tv also wakes up. Is there any solution?

thanks for any help 😎

You no need to check (read) complete thread.
On the top of page ,you have "search" . just type "C715 setting" ......
Thank you! Found some suggested ones!

What would be the deal with the firmware compatible with C715? Should I just upgrade to the latest official one, or should I try the V8-R851T02-LF1R709.019018.zip that was solving the HLG problem? Is it a newer one?

Why is it better for you? Will it be compatible with C715? Is HLG spot problem solved in 645 as well?

And if I will install R will it void the warranty?
Why is better ?.....read previous comments...
It is for C715....also notice on previous page....
HLG artifacts still in V645.....as is older firmware..read please.....
"R" version will NOT void warranty, as is fix bug custom firmware released by TCL.

Guys,
please read previous posts (maybe 2 or 3 pages back) to avoid asking same questions.....

I have recently read this news, so is it true and not a simple rumor that the C715 series will be updated to android 11?

The article does mention C715 for the 11 update. However to be absolutely sure it'll be offered, only TCL would know. Until then, we wait, keep eyes out for new info that will hopefully come in due course

    Be advised!

    I would suggest NOT to install this Android11 update yet, wait until bugs are sorted out.

    I have 50C715

    Firstly, great to see Android11 on its way! Awesome, cant wait for normal performance and functionality. Good job TCL and anyone else working on updates ;)

    Positive
    I have found that Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) is now available, I have not been able to test to see if it does anything yet​

    Negative - HDMI inputs DO NOT WORK
    I can not get my PC to display a picture. Have tried HDMI 1 and 3. The TV recognises the PC resolution but it can not find a signal. I also notice that the HDMI option for enabling 2.0 is no longer present in the options.​

    Digital TV channel scanning is not possible.​


    As most of use would be gamers on PC or consoles, this is not a viable update as cant play if you can not access the output of your chosen device. Im guessing DVD/bluerays wont work either, from what I can tell, HDMI is broken

    Trying to work out how to revert back to an earlier Android9 update, as I can't use my PC where I have the files lol. Lucky I have a work PC with me, just trickier..

    V900 works good on my TCL 55EP640...
    Thanks good.

    Its interesting then. 2 users having R007 (v900) working on xxEP640
    2 not working on xxC715
    1 not working in xxP615

    Is it better suited and made for only specific TV models? Eg just the EP640?

    i think its more a ram issue, 2 gb shared with video is nothing. once u trim down the system mit AdbAppControl it will become way more responsive.

    edit: here's my preset in case anyone wants to try

    ADBAppControl 1.7.1 now display also RAM usage....

    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
