TCL TV can do wall mount?
You all know any installer?
I'll be reusing the same mount from my very old 32" (spoilt a long time ago) for the 65". The same mount is holding my 55" now too. VESA 400mm can still fits on the old bracket, and 65" is less than 20kg, so should hold properly.

Just got my tcl p8s 65. But notice the screen is not as clear when watching free to air channel like ch5. Try adjusting the brightness and contrast but somehow still not so clear. Any idea what I need to set to get a clearer image?

it also depends on the original source. It may not be native HD (SD upscale to HD) then on your set, another upscale to UHD. one have to be realistic.

Best is zero upscale (native 4K)

There are various upscale 'engine' quality and it comes with price.

just my 2 cents.

The quality of free to air low resolution shows on a 4K TV is really bad even for TV with a good upscaler

Thanks for the feedback. It looks like not much can be done for free to air channels till they upgrade to 4k.

Can't do much if the source video is low res even with a good upscaler.

Netflix, Amazon Prime, UHD MKVs, console games for 4K lor.

The rest, just whatever resolution they get to watch at.

Anybody have issues with playing 4k or HDR content on Netflix with TCL?

I am thinking of buy TCL TV for my mother who is very old and is not familiar with technology. When we switch on the TV will it start up like a normal tv where it will go to the HDMI Port and get the signal from the starhub box or that it start up with Android TV. I actually need a dumb TV for my mom but I am not willing to spend money to buy dumb tv. At least when I am at home I can use the Android TV function.

What makes you think that TCL is a dumb tv? With all these Android, netflix, youtube and AI built in, it definitely is not your regular dumb tv.
With the right settings,the tv will show up direct into the live programme. If the manufacturer make the user have to press a lot of buttons, do a lot of steps every time he wants to watch tv, the manufacturer will close down very fast.
Anyway, if you want to get those fat old CRT tv, which is the dumb tv you wants, you can try Mustafa if they have small sized ones, or else, buy from those tv repair shoes.

He say he need a dump tv looks alike type, he did not say TCL is a dump TV.
All he need is a TV thats has a fix setting for old folk to operate.
