[OS 10.5] Dynamic Contrast and Game Mode

TCL 4 series 65".

It auto updated straight to 10.5.0 and this UI is horrible.  Local dynamic contrast is completely disabled in game mode now!

This TV is right next to a TCL 5 series Roku 65" running 10.0.0, which allows dynamic  contrast off, low, medium, or high while game mode is on.

There is no comparison between the two, since one has low dynamic contrast during game mode and the other is off.  Can this be rolled back to 10.0.0?  Absolutely horrible, dull image without dynamic contrast.

Re: [OS 10.5] Dynamic Contrast and Game Mode

Hi Danny, I am having a similar issue as the those listed above. At times my TV will randomly dim or brighten as if it was an auto-brightness setting causing it. I have only noticed this since yesterday and my TV updated on the 16th. And assuming this most recent update brought about this new U.I (as I have not seen it prior to yesterday) I would also assume it's disabling of dynamic contrast during gaming mode is the issue. I primarily use the tv for gaming so game mode is always on. With gaming mode off (and dynamic contrast on) I have been unable to recreate the issue. So again I think it is the issue of not being able to have both on at once or the update did something else that is causing the issue. I also believe with gaming mode on and local contrast on my tv at times is unnaturally brighter and then it adjust to a dimmer more normal looking brightness and color. If the issue persists I will factory reset the tv but I am really hoping you can fix it instead.

Re: [OS 10.5] Dynamic Contrast and Game Mode

I returned the Roku piece of junk.  It is unusable for gaming in its current state.  I bought the new version of this same TV  - the Google variant.  Wow you guys, the menus for customizing image is amazing.  I 100% recommend the Android Google TCL over the Roku.  The hassle just isn't worth it.  Roku takes months to fix basic issues. Hope this helps some of you.

Re: [OS 10.5] Dynamic Contrast and Game Mode

Hi Roku, 

 

You guys fixed the problem by offering an update which reverted my T.V back to the old OS (which fixed the problem). Now once again you guys auto updated my television back to 10.5 without even fixing the problem with 10.5 so I am experiencing the same issues as listed above. Please offer and update that reverts it back to an old OS once more and is there any way I can turn off auto update as this is becoming very frustrating to deal with.
