Re: TCL 6-Series and 8-Series Local Dimming quality in game mode from recent 9.3.0 firmware

Also noticing lifted blacks on the brighter setting with letterbox content I'm guessing it was their attempt to fix black crush. I'm seeing slight grey in the letterboxes that wasn't there on 9.1

Update: I have power cycled the tv once per day the last 3 days and the local dimming is still working properly on 9.4.

Just got the 9.4 update and it does in fact tell you what firmware you're updating too when you check for updates. Knew I wasn't going crazy lol

I wonder why mine didn't smh. Maybe because that was first time I ever connected it to internet. So it was basically a fresh start for me my only explanation lol.

Possibly! I can confirm that using the Youtube black screen test that some of us tested to report to TCL seems to be fully darkened in Game Mode. Now do I disconnect the TV from the internet incase the next update breaks it again....Smiley Indifferent

Definitely lol. That's what I'ma do...I was perfectly fine on 9.1 and the black crush was never a issue for me and didn't notice it much. So I will be disconnecting...and right as I'm writing this I checked for update and I now have 9.4 lol. Will be unplugging after this
