Hi guys, I asked this a while back but didnít get a response, so I figured I would try again. I was able to, only once before, have my Astro A50 gen 2 headset receive audio from my PS4 or my tcl p605. Not sure what I did as I canít figure out how to get audio for both now (PS4 pro). Anyone know or have a set up that works?

For those in Australia the TCL tech representative told me the P20 is the equivalent model but doesn't have wide colour gamut and uses Android TV instead if Roku. If you want WCG you can go for the 55C2US which also had the better Harman Kardon speakers.

So I just got the TCL 55P605 from Bestbuy. I have hooked it up to my One X and everything is working awesome, 4k games look amazing.

Two minor things though, there is a strong plastic smell coming from it since I took it out of the box .
Also, for some reason on certain screens it doesnt get all the way black, more of a gray. Its weird because on some black screens it gets completely black and others it doesnt.

That smell will go away.
If the game is in hdr you will see black as black the tv can get, non hdr content can get washed out blacks at times.

Can you be more specific in whatís washed out looking.

Its just screens that I know are supposed to be black and they are gray.
The one I'm looking at right now are the Titanfall 2 loading screens which are supposed to be mostly black. They are more of a dark gray color.

Love this TV. An incredible buy, especially for the price. Little salty I don't have a PS4 Pro; part of me is considering upgrading my PS4 just for this.

Only issue is the sound quality.

Haven't had a sound bar for a TV before; don't really know where to start looking. Any recommendations? What have you guys done to remedy the below average sound?

Hit the home button, shut off the x1x, unplug the hdmi cord.

From home scroll down to inputs, go to the hdmi input youíre going to use, set that to 2.0, replug the hdmi cable in.

Thatís first thing you need to do.

After that launch 1x , you will have 2 different settings for this input, non hdr and hdr. I can send you the settings that have been universally used as the best for gaming and hdr on this set.

You have to launch a hdr game on that input, youíll see the notice pop up. You will set the hdr settings while in hdr mode. Outside of hdr mode say the dash you will set the non hdr settings.

Let me grab them real quick.

Non hdr


Then go to advanced picture settings.



Hdr



Go to advanced settings.




Now go to your mobile phone and download the roku mobile app.
Go to advanced settings and set gamma to 2.2 and noise reduction to off.


Youíre all done, now set that for streaming the roku apps as well as itís considered itís own input.

You were playing Assassin's Creed Origins when you did that correct?
I went into that and did not see the HDR option anywhere.

I have my hdmi passing through a Elgato HD60 using the cable that came with the One X on one side and the cable that came with the Day One Xbox One on the other side. I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

Perhaps the Elgato can't pass HDR through?
Thats probably my issue.

Alright, thank you for your help. I will have to buy another hdmi cable.
Edit: Actually using just the One X cable without the elgato or the other cable used I still dont get HDR.
Now going into my Xbox settings it only gives me the option of 720p and 1080p and says my tv is running at 1080p. WTH?
It says my tv isnt capable of 4k.
Edit 2: Figured out I didnt have my Xbox settings right. I need to have it on auto detect. Changed that and it fixed everything.

Was planning to get the P605 but the C807 offer at Costco for 425 bucks is hard to pass up. Is the C-series edge vs direct dimming a huge difference?

The C series does not have any local dimming whatsoever.

You want local dimming. Is there a difference, yes a pretty big one if you want the full hdr effect.

Full array is typically better, but on high end TVs like the Sony X930E that are edge lit the local dimming is exceptional.

Target model is faux HDR. It uses an 8-Bit panel.

You can have hdr on an 8 bit its not as good mainly because am 8 bit TV is probably not going to get as bright as a higher end 10 bit panel. As long as your TV can hit 4-500 nits it will be easily noticeable.

It's good but not as good as the P605/7. It doesn't have HDR and isn't half as bright. If all you want is 4K it's fine but for $200 more you could get a much better version of this TV with high quality HDR.

Also...fuck Wal-Mart. Go to BB or Target and price-match if you must.
