Game mode broken on TCL 65r617

Game mode is broken with the last update. When I toggle it off and on the screen doesn’t flash black for a split second. The input lag makes gaming virtually unplayable. The only work around I have found is to have my tv power on to the input my PS5 is connected to, do a system reset then toggle game mode off and on. Extremely frustrating to have to do this every time I feel like playing a game.

Re: Game mode stuttering on with 10.0 update

I am having the same issue with Game Mode not working. Not sure when it started happening exactly, but I'm noticing significant input lag. Turning Game Mode doesn't seem to do anything.

I had a similar issue happen with an update ~November 2020 that was fixed with an update ~December 2020 or ~January 2021.

I really wish these updates would stop breaking Game Mode. Very frustrating and makes me want to stop updating or get a different brand of TV.

Re: Game mode stuttering on with 10.0 update

It's not stuttering, it's that game mode isn't turning on. When I turn it on and off it does nothing. There is a noticeable input lag that wasn't there before.
