They both look better on the TV. Not astronomically better, but they do look better.
I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something in my settings but looks like it's "normal"
I don't think it's "normal". But honestly, there's nothing real specific to help you trace down.
The NX5, in the right environment, should look fantastic. The TCL TV at 55" is too small to benefit from 4K resolution so you should be able to fully benefit from that on your projector and see more detail. The TV will be brighter. That's really all it has as its advantage. The projector beats it out in all other ways. There's a good chance your projector just isn't set up correctly. Who knows? Based only on what's stated here, no one can tell you the exact solution. Perhaps you should bring in a calibrator to take care of things.
