    i searched and couldn't find any previous threads for this.... so i thought i'd start one.

    just entered the "4k race" as it were with an older model P605. wanted to know what calibration settings you are using for this model/tv. these are ones i've found from google:
    https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tc...-2017/settings
    https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/com...ture_settings/

    or do you guys have any other links resources i can consult?

    i dont have a dedicated UHD disc player yet, i'll get that eventually.

    right now i'm streaming through prime/vudu/disney+/tv+ and the rest i'm using HTPC.

    any best practice/tips would be helpful.

    also where can you find cheap RF remote the roku ra-cl 9 is the best replacement for this... but thus far it's like way more than i'm willing to part with.

    any tips? i've searched the yardsale online places and haven't found any.

    Do you have an iPhone? The Roku app works pretty well for IOS. I can control the TV from anywhere I have a WiFi connection in the house.

    I have the TCL 615 and found the calibration settings from Consumer Reports were pretty close. I tried them on other TCLs at BB where my son works for fun and it really helped them out so it might get you in the ballpark.

    yep, i've been using that since i've owned the roku stream+ sticks. it just extends to the TV now.

    the 'calibration' i ended up with was:

    SDR:
    brighter
    movie
    backlight 20 (not sure what to use on SDR with this setting) sometimes i've had it 0 or 4 or all the way up... this is the only settings i'm not entirely sure what to use and every site has different types
    everything default except:
    local contrast=high
    sharpness=0
    color=45
    gamma=2.0
    noise reduction=off

    HDR:
    darker (and brighter during daytime viewing)
    movie
    everything default except:
    local contrast=high
    sharpness=0
    color=45
    gamma=2.0
    noise reduction=off

    as for the rest of the color profile settings, you need some special equipment to measure those i think so i left all that as 0.
