    Xbox Series X HDR flicker/white flash at 4K/60Hz


    Dear Sir/Madam,

    With my new Xbox Series X I encounter randomly occurring screen flicker/white flash while playing games or watching videos in 4K/60Hz with HDR enabled. The flicker/flashing is only for a second and sometimes trigger the HDR notification on my TV. When I
    turn off HDR via the console this problem doesn’t occour. The console is connected to a PhilippsTV from the 5000Series which is 4K/60Hz/HDR enabled. This problem doesn’t occur with other hardware connected to the TV. Latest firmware is on both the TV and console
    installed. To me it looks like a handshake issue or intermittent connection between the console and TV while running at 4K/60HZ with HDR enabled.

    During my research on the internet I noticed that other users encounter similar problems at 4K/60Hz with HDR enabled. Is Microsoft going to address this problem with the next firmware update and do you have a workaround for me in the meantime so that I
    can use 4k/60Hz with HDR enabled?

    Thank you in advance for your support.

    :)

    Sony Receiver STR-HD790

    When i connect the Xbox directly to my projector 4k HDR 60hz game play is supported and works. When I pass through the Sony receiver 4k HDR 60hz gameplay is not supported. The Xbox says going through a receiver may limit support. But, the PS4 and my gaming
    PC support 4k HDR 60hz gameplay passing through the projector. Just seems strange that the Xbox doesnt support this receiver. Makes we worried about future Series X compatibility as well...

    White Flickers while watching movies/streaming? 4k UHD 60hz monitor no HDR

    I had the same / similar issue with my old 4K 60hz none HDR / HDMI 2.0 monitor when watching movies and some times in games with the Series X,

    As soon as i upgraded my monitor to a 4K 144hz monitor that has HDR / HDMI 2.1 ports, i no longer had this problem,

    I'm not sure what the problem is, but my guess is that the HDMI 2.1 port on Series X doesn't play well with HDMI 2.0 port of monitors, or it's the Series X trying to force HDR on, even if the monitor does not have / support HDR and the HDR in Series X menu's is turned off.

    ? Xbox support 4K?

    Some TVs may ask to first enable 4K / HDR on specific outputs, please look into your TV Settings.

    The Xbox one X/S cable is 4K ready and works with 60Hz

    1440 @120hz or 4K HDR @60hz

    Hi Toddzilla,

    There is currently no game on the XBOX One X that supports 120hz / 120fps.

    You will have the best experience by running your console at 4k HDR @ 60hz
