    Yeah, VRR use was unintentional in my case. But it made the flicker extremely visible and I truly understand now why that can be a real issue in some games. The only thing that works is setting Kodi in windowed fullscreen mode and enabling gsync only for exclusive fullscreen. I tried disabling...

    LG 48CX

    Finally got a 3080 and updated the FW if the LG to .11.30 via USB - VRR works fine across the whole range. However - yesterday it was the first time I actually noticed the VRR 120Hz flickering issue. It was more than just annoying scrolling through menus in Kodi, running Kodi in Borderless...

    @Whoever just deleted the gsync-off-no-tearing post: If you turn gsync off and vsync on you'll just have VSync at > 120Hz.

    I think only in combination with VRR though. If not it would also mean it has to be broken on basically everything that runs on 60Hz, including Netflix, Prime and other apps that don't do a refreshrate switch.. Or it may only be a problem in gamemode.. then you could work around that by using...

    Best Smart TV? (>40")

    I would appreciate that. I'm on the latest .25 firmware on the CX that came out a couple of weeks ago. The only option I have on the WebOS UI is DLNA to my networked AVR or a USB device plugged into the TV. While I use Emby for my media library I'd welcome direct access to my file system for...

    Best Smart TV? (>40")

    I'm not saying WebOS is horrible. I'm saying it's the worst of all options. For me personally it's unusable because I have my SAT tuners go into my server in the basement and stream it around the house using tvheadend. Well.. there is no tvheadend client app for WebOS and there is no Kodi for...

    Large 4k monitor vs the Ultra wides

    I wouldn't buy in on both the Acer and Asus 43"ers. Too expensive for what they do. If you go big and go 16:9 I'd simply go for an LG CX right now - or maybe another 4X" 4k TV with HDMI 2.1 VRR and HDR if there comes along any competition for LG. Both the Acer and Asus as well as the Alienware...

    Best Smart TV? (>40")

    Samsung sticks to Tizen because they use it across their entire ecosystem on their propietery processors. From TVs over Smartwatches to IoT stuff. They try to be an Asian Apple clone. WebOS though.. just plain bad imho. Kudos to Sony, Philips, Nvidia and co who stick to AndroidTV and make it an...

    Yeah, I know that feeling. "I'm gonna wait, I'm gonna wait.." Next thing I remember was the checkout dialog 😂 I don't regret my descicion coming from a 43" 4k60 VA monitor. The LG CX is just phantastic and we're nitpicking at a very high level here.

    Imho nothing beats Android TV. Both Tizen and WebOS are unusable for me. Missing apps and features left and right so I'll end up getting another Shield or Xiaomi box..

    Large 4k monitor vs the Ultra wides

    I personally prefer 16:9 at 40" or larger. Had a 43" Momentum for 2 years and now moved on to a 55" LG CX. Imho the 48 CX would have been perfect, but the 55" was 400 EUR cheaper so I went with that and I won't look back for a long time with that baby.

    I think nVidia only introduced VRR/G-Sync compatible over HDMI on the 2xxx series. I know I got an overpriced 2070S opposed to a 1080Ti because of some sort of G-Sync compatibility concerns.

    LG 48CX

    Yeah, but still - what's the alternative? 120 zone FALD with generally worse blacks than even the "raised blacks" on the CX, halos, no VRR and/or no 120Hz support at all? Right now it's imho either: A) turn off VRR B) run at 60Hz VRR C) live with raised blacks D) get a 4k€ Alienware OLED that...
