What method do you use to "stream directly to the TV"?

Try this in TV settings - sound - advanced - digital audio out - PCM. If you are using AVR.
Tried - cannot. It work on my LG but not on this TCL. The screen already show sound format not supported so it must be CODEC missing. The setting you mention is output format to HT.

What is the exact method you play the DTS movie?

Otherwise you install Android Kodi or TVMC to play the movies.

65P8S available at Tamp Giant too.
It is side by side with C8 showing DVBT channel 8. From my eyes, don't really see much different. Borrow the remote from the staffs, WiFi logged on to my mobile hotspot n tested awhile. Interface navigation actually quite smooth. YouTube n Netflix 4k no prob also.
Most impt is to impress my wife..let her play abit n get approval. Haha
Earliest delivery 4-9pm tomorrow.

4k netflix definitely supported. 4k youtube not sure, but the video looks sharp
Thanks! Are you using this tv and does the remote come with both the Netflix and Youtube button?

How about downloading other apps? Any issues?

I have been asking same question here n I think unable to. Cause need to make payment at cashier then go customer service to fill in details for delivery. For stock, maybe can call to check..maybe can even reserve. But for payment, still need to go down.

How much are they selling for 55c8?

Is the 55c8 same spec as 65c8 except that it's smaller screen size?

How do you check to confirm Netflix 4K? 2.4ghz WiFi and Lan 10/100 maybe won’t get uhd.

Any obvious loss going for 65P8S instead of C8?
The onkyo sound bar?

Sorry..I should put YouTube 4k. For netflix at least running on HD from screen sharpness. 2.4g or 100 lan can't run uhd? Tot 20-25Mbps of bandwidth will be sufficient to run netflix uhd? Not really sure but gd enough for my eyes.

To me no different. Me not pro also. The p8s default TV speaker is decent enough for normal viewing.
For a $400 price diff..i will go for p8s n get a more decent soundbar+ sub.
Of cos must see Yr needs n usage. Mine purely youtube n netflix for my kid. Dvbt for elderly guest.

But previously, some bros here actually did some great research on c8. Maybe they can better advise on the extra $400 worth.
