    LG 32EP950 OLED monitor initial impressions

    I have a question about refresh rate support. In the LTT video it showed it supporting out-of-the-box 24Hz, 48Hz, and 60Hz. Does it by chance support 50Hz if you use a custom resolution and, if so, does it support it without any frame-drops or the like? (if you aren't aware, the vast majority...

    I mentioned at the top of the previous page that John from Digital Foundry found that BFI + VRR worked on his CX's latest firmware at least from the Xbox Series X, but only when Dolby Vision was enabled: https://hardforum.com/threads/lg-48cx.1991077/page-197#post-1045180420 There was no...

    I let this thread stew a little bit, but on my return I'm kind of disappointed now the thread as a whole seems to have doubled on HDR and isn't even willing to experiment to see if this BFI + VRR thing even works let alone if it's useful. I find it very interesting that, with high-refresh...

    Whoops I'm a derp and forgot to mention that I was mainly thinking that, possibly through EDID trickery, we could get VRR + BFI working withOUT HDR. But even with having to rely on HDR being enabled, to completely write-off the idea of VRR+BFI just because of the reduction in brightness seems...

    LG 48CX

    At least with the Xbox Series X, John from Digital Foundry says that firmware 04.30.10 on his CX allowed him to enable VRR and black frame insertion at the same time and, better yet, it worked. However, he was only able to do so when Dolby Vision was enabled (not even HDR10), so he thinks this...

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    The existence of embedded DisplayPort means that DisplayPort should continue being used at least internally regardless of external display support. It's my impression that pretty much all modern consumer electronics with an embedded screen of sufficiently high resolution and/or refresh rate use...

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    Wait, so something non-standard like 56Hz does work via a custom resolution, it just has to be no greater than 60Hz? EDIT: Erm, I just realized that, in Linus' video where it shows the stock refresh rate options, it only shows 24Hz, 48Hz, and 60Hz - not 50Hz, which is a pretty important one for...

    Well heck, do custom refresh rates even work at all, like a refresh rate less than 60Hz? (50Hz, 48Hz, weird in-between rates like 56Hz, etc)

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    Two questions: 1. It's my impression that, at such high resolutions, one has to use "DisplayID" timings via CRU. Did you do that and, if not, could you give it a whirl? 2. Did you try more standard refresh rates like 75Hz, and not just less-standard ones like 62Hz? I say this because I...

    Assuming that those videos were taken by you yourself, are you able to run a custom resolution that has a refresh higher than 60Hz on the monitor? (you may have to use CRU - custom resolution utility)

    Do you already own the C1's? I ask because the Aorus FO48U could be a work-around for that issue due to having both DisplayPort and HDMI (technically its 24Gbps HDMI bandwidth is less than the C1's 40Gbps, but it supports DSC anyway which your 3080 supports; furthermore your 3080 has 3x...

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    If it's with text rather than raster images, then you may simply need to change the cleartype setting, such as setting it to greyscale and/or just flat-out disabling it. I find using the program "BetterClearTypeTuner" to be the easiest way to achieve all of this...

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    I'm kind of annoyed that they didn't even try to see if the panel can handle higher refresh rates via a custom EDID, especially since actual professional workstation stuff tends to be binned better, no? I mean, my sister had a Westmere-powered HP 8440p Elitebook with a Quadro NVS 3100M and we...

    There's my previously-mentioned insane idea of using the display in portrait, setting cleartype to greyscale (or turning it off altogether), and then using something like fancyzones or Win11's built-in equivalent to only use the bottom half of the screen combined with a black desktop background...

    On an E9 with that setting turned off, the fireworks never show up and this is all that appears (apologies for vertical video syndrome, the TV is actually owned by a family friend): https://ttm.sh/FxF.mp4 (video will be automatically deleted in a few months)

    Cleartype is enabled by default... which is the exact problem - Cleartype expects a traditional RGB or BGR sub-pixel arrangement and doesn't know how to account for the white sub-pixel on LG's WOLED panels. For this reason, setting it to "greyscale" or turning it off altogether can make text...

    Adjust cleartype. Also maybe set up the screen so that you can quickly turn off the screen via the remote while still having the actual TV electronics still powered on, probably ideally via an OSD shortcut since I'm guessing that you don't have your C1 set up for voice commands (which also...

    170hz monitor stuck at 60hz (but the other monitor isnt) Dual 1440p displays

    Umm... My suggestion for using DisplayID is purely because it can handle higher bandwidth, so if DisplayID resolutions work on the monitor(s), then maybe the GPU will be able to output higher total bandwidth and keep both monitors running at higher refresh rates.

    170hz monitor stuck at 60hz (but the other monitor isnt) Dual 1440p displays

    Don't suppose you specifically tried using DisplayID custom resolutions inside of CRU rather than traditional custom resolutions? Anyway, random idea that won't really help your issue but can at least help narrow down if the issue is GPU hardware or the GPU software - see what happens on a...

    What if you try making the custom resolution via CRU, making sure to add the necessary data blocks for "HDR static metadata" and "HDMI 2.x" (for VRR)? There's also the option of black frame insertion which is something that's only available on the CX when not using VRR. Without trying to use...

    It's my impression that BFI at 120Hz on the CX results in a given pixel being turned off for the same amount of time that it's turned on, meaning that the panel is already natively 240Hz. So assuming that this is accurate, then going straight to 240Hz input seems like the more likely scenario.

    Maybe it wasn't entirely clear, but yeah I know the CX can't decode DTS unlike the E9 - that's why I'm asking about transcoding to a supported lossless format like PCM or FLAC because, contrary to what elvn says, transcoding does not inherently mean a loss of quality, only if you transcode to...

    I've never used plex, but is there any reason multi-channel PCM can't be used instead of AAC so that it's actually lossless? Or something like FLAC? At least, with a USB drive plugged directly into an E9 OLED, the built-in WebOS player is able to decode multi-channel PCM and multi-channel FLAC...

    I would think that all you'd have to do is disable VRR while keeping 120Hz to avoid the gamma issues and call it a day, which is also probably the most convenient method since you can simply set a game profile in your GPU drivers to simply have VRR disabled for that specific game. According to...

    Does this by any chance work with the usual USB ethernet adapter(s) that people use to get a ~300mbps wired connection?

    One thing a monitor is better at however is custom refresh rates - TVs typically being very picky at only running at very specific refresh rates and nothing else in-between, below, or above (though VRR certainly makes this much less of an issue than previously). In particular, I'd be interested...

    Are you saying the "freesync over HDMI" EDID override trick no longer works, or doesn't work on newer GPUs (e.g. RX 6000 series)? https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/g65mw7/working_freesync_mod_for_vrr_displays_tested_on/ (not that I guess you could test it since you've sold the C9 now...)

    I would refer to the post I made back on page six regarding "Better Cleartype Tuner" - setting it to greyscale or disabling it altogether should solve the "color weirdness" and blurriness issues as long as you're OK with the increase in text aliasing due to effectively cutting the horizontal...

    LG 48CX

    As I mentioned on the previous page, there's always the chance of a custom resolution enabling higher refresh rates. And while technically you could try force-enabling VRR via a custom EDID as well, that's obviously going to be way more hit-and-miss.

    HDTVtest posted their G1 review: Also, I can't be the only one that finds it annoying that he uses 24fps telecine'd to 60fps for the "talking head" portions of his review videos. I inquired about that in the past, and he basically replied that the presence of telecine shouldn't cause issues...

    Your setup to me looks like it has a good amount of empty vertical space, so obviously the solution is to rotate the entire screen 90 degrees in a portrait orientation and use it as a 2160px wide display with a horizontal screen size similar to a 27" monitor. :P ...I mean, it could work, but in...

    Was this with the internal 100mbps ethernet port, or were you using one of those USB ethernet adapters? (of course, if the video stream in question isn't anywhere close to 100mbps, e.g. non-UHD Blu-ray rips, then the internal ethernet port only being 100mbps really shouldn't make an impact, but...

    At the risk of going off-topic... So the reason I asked is because, while I don't know much at all about plex, I know a thing or two about digital audio formats. If you're transcoding to a lossless format, then there is no quality loss because that's literally (not figuratively!) what...

    Forgive my ignorance, but is plex unable to transcode to 7.1 multichannel in a lossless codec (PCM, FLAC, etc.)? I mean, WebOS's built-in media player for USB drives supports decoding those audio codecs. Maybe you're already aware, but WebOS supports some USB ethernet adapters which is a...

    Ryzen Motherboard that supports DDR4 ECC

    Since this thread did get revived semi-recently, it may at least be worth mentioning now that Threadripper Pro supports registered ECC, not just unbuffered ECC. ...of course, Threadripper Pro and the according WRX80 chipset motherboards are pretty darned expensive.

    I really doubt that's actually true as LG only make one 48" OLED panel, and that would bork up the built-in interpolation engine for 60Hz sources and in fact would mean you couldn't even use the exact same algorithm because 60Hz to 100Hz takes quite a bit more computational grunt than 60Hz to...

    Since UT3 should be able to easily run locked at 115fps 100% of the time, here's something else you can try: Set the framerate cap to 120fps Turn off gsync. Turn on "Motion Pro" (black frame insertion). Now it should be really smooth...though I kind of wonder if LG's implementation of black...

    What if you "cheat the system" by making a custom resolution that is 3840px wide, such as 3840x1440 or 3840x1080? Heck IIRC, the latter resolution is even supported natively by the TV itself when GPU scaling is disabled, though I believe it will be stretched vertically (though maybe you can...

    Technically the CX is already a 240Hz panel as this is how it achieves BFI with native 120Hz input. So if the panel electronics had the necessary hardware improvements (because I would assume it would require more than just a firmware upgrade), such a function as native 240Hz input could be...

    I would make a single exception for if you're using at least 200% DPI scaling since 4:2:0 by definition has the same chroma resolution as 1080p 4:4:4, and as someone with a father that needs the DPI scaling really cranked up (read: 150% on a 25" 1080p display; same desktop realestate as 720p)...
