Hi everyone,

New owner here of the 2019 TCL 65" R625 and I didn't see an official owner's thread for this set yet, so I hope this is ok.

I've been reading this forum for many years and had been following the 2019 TCL Pricing & Availability thread to this point, but thought it was time for a true owners thread for this specific set. I hope the other recent new owners of the R625 will join in here as well. Looking forward to chatting with everyone!

Best,
Mike

My TV is out for delivery tomorrow. Really hope I win the panel lottery. (Assuming there is one) I went and ordered a 3rd party VESA stand because the Legs on the R625 are just too wide. No idea why they went with that design...🙄

my harmony remote doesn't recognize TCL 65R625. How quickly do they generally register new models? I would have thought they'd be ready for such an anticipated model.

Hung mine up last night. With the virtually invisible bezel the 65R625 takes up about the same space as my old 55" LG did. The "Gravity locks" released and the picture is stunning. No dead spots, no brown outs just a crystal clear picture. Can't wait to see how it handles sports and OTA broadcasts. Love the Roku OS too. Glad I waited for this set.

Is the automatic calibration through the app available now or that a near feature update? If it is already available has anyone tried it yet? I’m wondering is it is accurate and worth considering in my next tv purchase as a bonus perk of the TCL.

I asked in the other thread, but didn't get a response. Can someone measure their 55" to see how far from the top of the set the top set of holes for mounting are? And how far from the bottom the bottom holes are? I need to mount mine, and it's going to be a really tight fit. It hasn't arrived from Amazon yet, and I'd like to get a head start.

Thanks for starting this thread. Looking forward to getting mine once stock is filled locally.

I think they look cool. At least they look different than the other 100 TVs offered right now that all have the same legs in the same place.

Isn't the Harmony learning? i.e. You can capture the IR code sent from the TCL remote. All that said, perhaps the TCL uses BT/RF for the remote since it's a Roku TV. For that, you would need the Harmony Hub. I'm not sure if it can learn RF signals as well, but I bet it can.

I can't post a link because I a newbie here but I bought one by the brand Hemudu on Amazon but heads up you need to buy 4 M6x 25mm screws for the back of the TV for the 55 inch as they didn't include the right size for this TV. Other then that it works great!

I lost.

I guess the good news is that now I can meaure the VESA screw hole placements for myself?
Dude is this a joke, what is going on with the shipping of these things. Rush job? I think whenever best buy gets them I am going to open mine right there.

This kind of thing happened a lot in the early days of both the P series, 2018 6 series. If I'm not mistaken I think they began double boxing them, Not sure who did that, Amazon or TCL

I don't think this is shipping. The box seems to be in really good shape. There's a hole in the back of the box and near the bottom - nowhere near where the top of the screen is. Pretty incidental, IMO. With the set powered down, I can see what looks like a big bubble where the damage is, with a line running across to the right.
