I tried to update via USB but I don't think it lets you do it that way unless you reset your settings and don't initially connect to the internet so you force the TV to update via USB....unless I'm missing something?

You're right - you can't update via USB after the tv is activated. Have to reset unfortunately.

Ah well, guess I can wait. Don't really feel like having to input all my calibration settings again.

Hey again, thanks for the quick responses to my "concerns" about my new P605, knowing that most of my worries are just normal of the set itself definitely helped. I also wanted to post an update about the Xbox One X specifically. So Microsoft released the new update to fix the 4K UHD Blu-Ray issue people were complaining about and while some people are still having problems with their picture I can confirm that my P605 looks insane now. The update totally fixed the washed out colors while watching 4K UHD Blu-Ray and surprisingly it also fixed Netflix, I watched a couple movies tonight via Netflix and the blacks were nice and dark and there's no bleed into the black bars on the top or bottom. It looks amazing!! I'm still having the issue though were Netflix loads up in HDR and when I close Netflix and go back to the Xbox One X dashboard the blacks are CRUSHED. Turning the tv off and then back on fixes it though. Dunno what's up with that but it's annoying.

For anyone who has played Assassin's Creed Origins on their XBOX ONE X, what did you set the HDR settings to? I'm at 1000 for luminance and I left paper white at 120.

You should be using the Netflix App built into the TV as it support Dolby Vision which Netflix uses heavily.

If anyone is using the ps Vue app on this tv and hasn’t gotten an automatic update, just go ahead and do the factory reset to force it. The updated ps Vue app is worth it even though you have to change picture settings again for your inputs. Just write your settings down and take the few minutes to re-enter them. The initial ps Vue app was ugly and difficult to find something specific, now there’s a guide and GUI consistent with this century.

I’m curious if any other apps were updated?

That's what I have set for my Sony and it's just a great looking game. Don't want to finish it as I'm just riding my camel around on a slow journey.

So if you find the sun in the sky (actual game not the pic) it helped me calibrate this. At 800 the sun is bright with what I'd say normal glow... at 900 luminance the glow is very bright but you still can see the sun outline. At 1000 and beyond the sun becomes completely invisible due to the brightness glow. Because of this test I set mine at 900. I left paper balance at 120 - i know you can bump it up but then brightness of the game gets wonky. I think you benefit more having a lower base shade of white to give variance in the white color gammut

Just bought p605 last week and had some discoloration and wondering if anyone has seen this or know what it may be. It's the purple around the NFL logo. When picture moves the purple moves around too. Sometimes it would create blobs on people's hands and faces on commercials too.

I was doing a stream so don't know if that affected it but the picture on macbook was fine but not on tv. Maybe it's my settings?

The past 3 days have been okay though. This was happening 5 days ago so maybe having the tv off helped?

Picture in link below.

Have anyone had Network issues with this TV?

I have it right next to my Router on a 5ghz line 150MB connection.

Just got the TV yesterday and used a Firestick with my old Plasma for 2 years without issues so it shouldnt be the router unless Roku handles randoms disconnects differently.

Basically was watching netflix and got booted to a Network connectivity error msg. Clicked ok and things worked again.

Now was just watching PS Vue, and randomly it went to "Loading" and I had to restart vue.
Hmm I have had no issues so far. Keep us posted though.

You have to download the Roku app on your smartphone then connect it to your p605 through the same WiFi network and then you go to settings in the Roku app where you should see expert settings. That's where you find the white balance, gamma etc.
Thanks. I found where the expert settings were but I needed the regular settings/options. I realized I just had to click * when on HDMI 1 or 2, etc and it would pull up the settings on the right.

Disable flashing light when no network is connected?

I want only a large flat panel, don't need the smart functions. However, whenever it's not connected to the internet, the LED on the bottom of the unit flashes whenever it's turned on. I can't get it to stop. Anyone had any luck here?

I've tried this things and they don't work:
--Reset network connection. I've tried this twice, it keeps flashing. More specifically: the light won't flash during startup, but will start flashing again within a few minutes after it's displaying video from an external source.

My temporary solution is electrical tape over the light, but that also blocks the remote from working. Anyone know how to kill that light?

I thought about doing this and started getting my settings but then realized I'd have to re-input all of the credentials from my streaming apps. Considering I use a good amount of them, I'm not sure I want to deal with the hassle. I did take pictures of all my settings in case I ever need to re-input them so I guess all of my effort wasn't for nothing. :)

I use PS Vue so at least I have a better UI to look forward to.

I would try two (2) options if you don't need smart features of set and don't intend to have it connected to the internet.

1. There is an option in menu system to disable the flashing light when TV is in standby mode. I don't know if this will also keep it OFF for internet connectivity status. You could try Disabling the Standby LED and see if that works. SETTINGS -- SYSTEM -- POWER -- STANDBY LED -- DISABLE

2. If Option 1 doesn't work, then you can do a factory RESET of the TV and set it up as a Non-Smart TV without Roku features. This should set it up as a Non-Smart TV and if you select CONNECT TO THE INTERNET LATER, then you should not have the blinking light indicating no internet connection. But, you also won't get any firmware updates via the internet. I guess you could periodically connect to the internet to check for updates and then RESET and disconnect again. Below is the TCL Support link on setting it up as a Non-Smart TV.

I saw some random horizontal lines when watching Civil War on Netflix the other day when it panned upwards in sky. Was faint on could be scene shorty. I haven't seen it much other times.

Are these lines when viewing something or can be scene all the time?

Mine has these ghost horizontal lines during vertical panning

WOW! I have had my TCL 55P607 for 7 days now & overall this is the best set I have ever owned. I got my first HD television in 2003. It was a Sony 42 inch Direct view LcOS, 3-chip 720p (which Sony marketed as SXRD). I got it at Best Buy on Black Friday for approx 2400 bucks & I was so pleased with myself for haggling such a great bargain. If only I could have seen the future. :)
Hey man, thanks for posting your settings. When you have time and get a chance, would you try my settings and measure? I want to see the differences between your set and mine using same settings.

jyqureshi's settings. My calibration was done using NVIDIA shield set to YUV 12-bit 4:2:2 Rec.2020, but using Rec.709 patterns.

Option 2 did it.

I had already tried option 1, but forgot to mention it. It didn't work, but Option 2 did.

Something to take up with TCL firmware people: In an ideal world, I could connect to the internet periodically without a strobe light flashing whenever I pulled the cord. I think for that to happen, a lot of the unfounded romance around connected devices has to be burned out with bad news. As it is, I will decide whether it's a bigger pain to pull the electrical tape when I need to use the remote, or to do a factory reset to turn the flashing light off. I might look into visually-opaque-but-IR-transparent material to cover the thingwith.

Anyway, that's a quibble. Thanks again to Blade005 for the help.

I just bought the 55P605 from Best Buy on Wednesday for my mom. The TV works great and every HDR demo I throw at it looks fantastic.

Question for everyone: My mom says there is a burning smell/odor coming from the back of tv. I can't/don't smell anything coming from the tv. She's thinking of having me return the tv because it's bothering her. She googled the issue and watched some guy on a Youtube video complaining about the odor on the 605. Does anyone have any odor or plastic burning smell coming from your 605/607?

Thanks for any replies.
