The Indian Smart TV market is in the nascent stage and is growing at a healthy rate. In Q2 2021, the Indian smart TV market grew by an astounding 65 percent year on year. TV tech is trying to be sustainable now—19 inches to 88 inches in size and 325 MONSTER SCREEN by LG.
One might notice a difference in picture quality between TVs of the same model in a showroom and at home. Problems such as dead pixels, color distortion, bars and lines, image retention, fuzzy screens, and fading screens may occur depending on usage. You can even troubleshoot Amazon fire TV sticks via AMTricks. The internet is filled with tips that work for one TV or another, but here are some that work for nearly all TVs.
Use a wired connection:
Wireless connection is used via Wifi; its signal transmission becomes more complicated when factors such as physical obstructions, network range and distance between devices, wireless network interference, and signal sharing. Using an ethernet cable to connect to TV and Wifi eliminates these issues. However, the length of the Ethernet cable can affect the speed of Wifi due to interference from external factors. Choose your cable based on the speed of your Wifi; if the connection is slower — 10 or 20 megabits per second — anything Cat 5 or newer will suffice.
Uninstall Extra and Unnecessary apps and settings:
The TV should be free of unnecessary apps, which can cause it to be slow and laggy over a period of time. There are pre-installed apps that one might never use in the TV’s lifetime, and Some apps eat up the processing power since they run in the background going unnoticed. If the TV does not show the apps running in the background, installing apps such as ‘Background apps and Process list’ can solve this issue. The apps that are compatible with your device should only be installed. Removing cache and data that stores non-essential files that are not 100% because they are required for the app to function correctly, deleting them should not harm its functionality.
Disable location services and usage diagnostics:
Usage Diagnostic mainly keeps a check on what is working/not working; disabling things like location services and usage diagnostics, which require a constant flow of data, would help to increase performance more, which is quite significant.
Keep apps up to date and disable automatic updates:
Background updates can significantly reduce the performance of the TV; however, the apps should be manually updated regularly, too, for the most part, to avoid lags. Android TV explicitly makes an effort to always literally have something new for people to watch, which necessitates regular updates, contrary to popular belief. This can kind of be both a blessing and a curse. Enabling data saver mode may also specifically assist in keeping track of what needs to generally be updated and viewing 3x content with the same amount of data, which is quite significant.
Using Tech and exploring:
Apps like Phone Remotes help you navigate to the most complex settings quickly by taking shortcuts and requiring the fewest number of clicks, or so they thought. Changing the sound and picture quality settings is also beneficial; pre-set settings are best, but changing the viewing angle and distance would be an excellent option. Cinema mode may feel much better when viewing from a distance. For the tech-geeks, enabling ADB is a must to tweak your Android TV. One can sideload apps without APK transfer, uninstall bloatware, enable hidden features, etc. Apps such as Sideload launcher can help this too.
