XiaoFaye:

I have updated the Android N on my TCL TV, I would like to say this is a MUST update.


It has a better performance when playing 4K videos.


 


toejam316:


Speak of the devil, TCL got back to me with the firmware image for C2 and X2s for Android N.


Here's the email quoted.



Thank you for contacting TCL customer support.


 


We already released the update for Android N-


Please follow these steps to do software update

  1. Turn off the TV (mains power – unplug it from the power point /socket)

  2. Insert USB stick with the correct software (if there’s a service port, make sure to plug it there)

  3. Press and hold the power button on the TV (not remote)

  4. Turn on mains power to the TV (while keeping the power button pressed)

  5. After about ten seconds, you will see the upgrade notification on the TV, as soon as you     see this, release the power button.

Does your 55E17NUS have any external buttons? Mine has no buttons at all so I can't do the on/off

Took me a while to find them as well, there are small buttons under the TV in the middle. the middle one is the power button you can tell that it feels slightly different to the others.

Thanks. Update done. Looking good so far. Hopefully it sorts out my problems (remote, EPG plus shopmode)

 

 

 

I'm surprised how many people here have the same TV - must be more popular than I thought being an "offbrand"

Any calibration tips?

Now TCL are taking over Onkyo and Pioneer... will they be rebranded as Pioneer's in NZ?

 

Imagine people finally replacing their old Kuro with a Pioneer LED!

Running the new firmware and everything seems ok (the EPG is still a little flakey but better than it use to be)

 

However I've noticed the freeview live TV has completely disappeared 

 

Went to the Playstore to download the tvnz on demand app and it's not showing either (which makes me think it's not compatible)

 

 

 

Anyone else notice this?

Turned the TV on this morning and there was a system update waiting to install , now updated to Android 7.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Found the problem - HbbTV was turned off. Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybrid_Broadcast_Broadband_TV#Australia_and_New_Zealand

TVNZ on demand is still flakey as  - was trying to watch Nigel Latta's new money series and it keeps playing an ad and then going back to the main screen. Ended up just chromecasting it from the TVNZ app on my phone (thanks to the builtin chromecast)
