New user here, and an owner of the XB1X since launch paired with an LG B7. Just wanted to get some input from some of you who have the console and maybe the same TV on whether or not you've encountered any issues with the HDMI signal dropping randomly. Haven't read through the whole thread yet so I'm not sure if anything like this has been mentioned. The issue is as follows:
The screen will go black and suddenly display some greyish static/noise for a few seconds and then revert to its screensaver page as though there's no HDMI signal detected. It doesn't seem to come back on its own. Unplugging the HDMI cable and replugging it solves the issue, as does switching off HDMI deep colour in the settings and switching it back on again. From what I can tell so far, the issue seems isolated to HDR content (specifically HDR gaming. I haven't tried any movies yet), and sometimes occurs when performing the actual switch from SDR to HDR when a game boots up, but other times randomly during HDR gameplay.
I've tried: power cycling the console, console reset, swapping HDMI cables with PS4 Pro, switching TV inputs, and fiddling with various settings like colour depth and "Allow YCC 4:2:2", but I can't seem to shake the issue. Right now I'm trialing having the "Allow YCC 4:2:2" unchecked again to see if it has any effect.
Has anyone had issues like this on here? I've scoured a few forums/reddit and it does seem to be a thing for some people, but I'm having a tough time determining whether this is faulty hardware, a software issue, or maybe some sort of bandwidth issue related to the HDMI cable or something. The fact that it seems to exclusively occur during 4K/HDR content made me think it might've been something like the latter. The fact that toggling Deep Colour setting makes the video signal come back leads me to believe there's some freaky handshake issue occurring with the X and the B7 of some kind. I'm enjoying the console a great deal so I'm hoping I can figure this out, ideally without having to ship the thing in and have MS crack it open so they can likely send me a note that says there's nothing wrong with it (it's a Scorpio Edition, as well).
