Problems with internet TV
Basic free to air TV reception excellent, but internet TV very disappointing. Freeview (green button) works OK on SBS on demand and ABC Iview but has never worked on 7 plus or 9 now. Selected shows simply do not load Same thing with individual channels selection with red button. Have contacted TCL who suggested a reset, which made no difference. Have given up. I think there is some sort of system incompatibility at work here. Al
Our unit is 12 months old and originally operated well. Two months ago Freeview started to mess up and continues to do so.
I View and SBSon-demand work really well but all commercial stations do not operate on Freeview at all now.
A TV Technician has just Investigated and after a complete reset has concluded that the software is at fault.
TCL "HELPLINE" not very helpful.
Out of warranty so 'cest- la- vie"
Good For The Price
OK is no Sony or Samsung but neither is the price! Its a darn good smart TV for the money and we are happy with it. The panel has lovely colours and contrast with decent black separation. Audio is a bit thin and the remote is OK. Apps seem to work well but I have only had time to have a basic play with them. I watched the footy on it and was completely happy (except for the audio)

Adequate Enough but is Severely Lacking
The TV in itself is suitable for everything you would expect. You can watch local television programs, connect multiple devices via HDMI, browse media files on external devices and a fair few other cool things too. However, this TV is missing some extremely necessary features that make it easier for more experienced users to play around with. The TV is built on proprietary firmware running on Linux, containing the bare minimum for anyone wanting to experience owning a "smart" TV. The app store is absolutely substandard. It contains scarcely any...actual useful applications, and it is almost never updated. The user interface is slow, clunky and the design is average. The UI does not compete at all with some of the more genuine TV producers, like LG, Samsung and ect. Being run on a standard build software, the TV cannot install external programs that may enhance or customize the way the TV looks or feels. It is frustrating owning a TV that is extremely lacking in customization and usability. However, ultimately I must say that beggars can't be choosers, and that I will learn to go with the Android TV range in the future for a better experience.
The tv is ok for the price. The picture quality is ok. The audio is quite poor as expected. Not sure if mine is faulty but the headphone jack seems faulty with the sound going soft for no reason. The smart feature are quite good for watching internet content such as youtube, netflix etc.
Not suitable for bedroom
Purchased this for our bedroom. It has a large (6cm x 4cm) bright white light on the front at the bottom which also shines up through te back of the TV and projected onto the wall. We didn't see the light in the showroom as the TV was on and the light is only on if it is off. For night 2 we taped over the light (still projected out the back though). But, it needs to be uncovered for the remote to work.Anyway, it is now in the garage.
Really wish someone else mentioned this in their reviews. So, please note, this is not suitable for bedroom!
Questions & Answers
I have a black screen (no picture) with sound and I'm hoping to use the "pinhole" reset button on the back of my TV, but I'm unable to find it.
