The new Tile Server layers work great for Google or OSM-like tile servers, however there's no option to select if the service follows the TMS standard with the Y tile number starting at the bottom which generates connection errors when using servers that do follow the standard, web clients like leaflet use a TMS=true parameter that could be easy to implement and allow for the selection of the tiles convention used by the server. Could a feature like this be implemented for QGIS?

Can you point me to a server I can use? It seems relatively difficult to find a publicly available TMS server to test the inverted Y axis...

Probably related, OpenLayers has a convention to indicate an inverted axis in the template with {-y}, see: https://github.com/openlayers/openlayers/issues/3923#issuecomment-125109362
