New LG CX user. Should I use VRR or Dolby Vision on the XSX? I can’t enable both for some reason.

Also I’ve had black flickering on occasion which I believe is the HDMI. I ordered a 48gbps cable to hopefully resolve that issue. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

Are you sure you don't have Freesync premium enabled? That's what disables Dolby Vision, not VRR. You can have both VRR and Dolby Vision enabled.

You should use VRR while gaming and Dolby Vision for movies.

A new ultra high speed hdmi will likely not change anything with the black flickering, how often is it happening?

I’m not sure what was going on. It was working fine on port 1 then suddenly said no signal and wouldn’t work any longer on that port. I switched to port 2 and it seems to be okay now.
Is there no way to have both Dolby Vision and VRR both enabled and the TV can pick up which one I’m currently playing? (ex. rocket league and netflix)

Just to be clearer on this advice. Dolby Vision is only supported by streaming apps on the Series X and not discs for movies. Dolby Vision support for games is coming later in 2021. You should be able to have both Dolby Vision and VRR enabled.

Check HDTVtest on youtube

Check this video out. These are hands down the best settings for the CX. Also DO NOT enable AMD FreeSync Premium, it disables Dolby Vision and offers nothing of value over the open standard VRR which is essentially the same feature, but doesn’t require disabling Dolby Vision to function.

I also get the black flickering, only in Destiny for some reason (and only during certain loading screens). A new HDMI won’t fix this, since I also tried that solution. I believe it’s an issue with the Xbox (or perhaps even certain games) since I never see the flickering when watching stuff on my Apple TV.

I followed his guide and my screen looks really dark now. Is this normal?
