So I received my Xbox Series X today, connected it to HDMI 4 using the bundled HDMI 2.1 cable and everything was fine until...I tried to play a game. Settings on the console were 4K, 120hz with HDR10 on auto and VRR enabled. As soon as I start a game my Q80T (55 inch) disconnects from the Xbox and shows a no signal error. From here I can press the Xbox button on the controller and switch apps and then I get significant screen tearing and flickering in menus.
As soon as I disable VRR on the Xbox it works fine. Hoping someone else has tested this with other cables or can offer solutions.
This guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8-6DmN9Gw4&feature=youtu.be was able to demonstrate that 4K 120hz with Freesync was possible on PC, so I'm hoping an update to TV or Xbox firmware will sort it out.
Edit: as Kyljaiden pointed out, some regions have version 1403 firmware. To clarify, I'm in Australia and we do not have that firmware update as yet and are stuck on 1402. Need to wait for confirmation from another user that 1403 replicates the 120hz VRR issues.
Edit2: Daparky shared this link https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/xbox/forum/xba_console/known-issues-on-xbox-series-xs/221c9d7f-d... confirming that Microsoft are aware of the issues.
Edit3: SOLVED - a number of users have reported that 1403 firmware fixes the issue I've detailed. Unfortunately some regions do not have access to this firmware yet and will simply need to wait until Samsung push out the updates locally.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yep the exact same issue here as well, my Xbox one x worked fine with VRR, but the new Series X does not like it at all. With or without 4k, 1080p or 120h/60hz
Q80T 75inch Here.
Quite disappointing !

It's interesting that you can't use 4k/60hz VRR - I can get that to work, it's only an issue when I use 4k 120hz VRR. I just tested 1440p 120hz VRR and after a few minutes of play I had no issues.
It's still a massive issue, I bought this TV a week ago so I could future proof with 4K 120hz VRR.

This is a good point, I can confirm that in Australia we are running firmware version 1402. Will be good to know if anyone else experiencing this problem in the US / EU is running 1403. I'll update the main post!
