Anybody else here having problems with this combo?

I bought the 200D last month but I can't use my Tamron 16-300 in Live View. It looks like there's a really bad CA in the screen

Make sure you have the in-camera lens corrections turned off. They typically don't work with 3rd party lenses and can cause some anamolies.

and focusing does not work. The lens works fine on my 600D.

There is an incompatibility that showed up with the lastest generation of EOS bodies.  The lens firmware will need to be updated by Tamron service:

Hope you guys can share your experience.
