  1. Series S - when HDMI-CEC is on, freesync turns unavailable


    Hi

    I recently purchased a Acer Vg240y monitor and a Series S. Both are working fine.

    But when I turn HDMI cec on in Series S, the variable refresh rate option turns unavailable.

    Is this normal or there is a way to solve it?

    :)

    Variable Refresh Rate greyed out with a AMD compatible Monitor (HP 27xq AMD FreeSync monitor)

    It supports FreeSync Premium in both hdmi and display port. Someone in this chat mentioned that the One S only supports FreeSync 2. If that's the case then will the Series X support all versions of FreeSync? I just want to make sure my monitor will be
    supported properly when the Series X comes out.

    Why doesn't Xbox consoles(360 and newer) have HDMI CEC?

    I believe the Xbox one/360 line should be updated to support CEC
    Not happening. IR only.

    Minor workaround: plug a device with CEC into your Xbox's HDMI input. When you turn it on, your CEC supported display(s) should change inputs.

    FreeSync Help

    I don't know that specific monitor, but some monitors only support Freesync via Display Port. So if you connect your console via HDMI, Freesync might be unavailable, if the monitor doesn't support Freesync via HDMI.

    For more information you should contact AOC or check the user manual for that monitor.

    X1 stopped turning on and off my audio receiver since update

    Don't count on Microsoft adding HDMI-CEC. That would require you to turn on your cable box first and not the X1. And that assuming cable boxes have HDMI-CEC capabilities (I don't have cable so I don't know, but my HD antenna converter box does not support
    CEC). Unless they somehow send a distinct IR signal to the cable box and use HDMI-CEC through the X1 to the TV/audio receiver. And isn't HDMI-CEC send the signal up to turn on and comes down to turn off. Wouldn't that mean you'd turn your X1 on to turn your
    entertainment systems all on and have to turn your TV off to turn everything off?

    I search a bit of infos about this monitor and seems that support FreeSync via HDMI.

    IMO the option must be enabled in the settings menu.
