    Hello,

    I have a Vizio M55-D0 4K TV with an Xbox One X hooked up to her. Recently I have experienced a lot of screen tearing and flashes when using the 4K UHD and HDR resolution on the Xbox. In the past, 4K has worked fine, and in the 4K details I have all green check marks. The tearing only stops when I drop the resolution down to 1080p.

    I am using a Kramer UHD cable and have also switched it out with other HDMI 2.0 cables with no positive effect. HDR on the HDMI port is turned on, and like I said the Xbox is detecting 4K and HDR capability. I've exhausted what I know to do, please help!

    Thank you for the link, however the game I was playing was not on that list (monster hunter world) but it is Xbox one x enhanced. However, the issue is present from the time I start up the Xbox you can see the tearing every few seconds no matter what game or app I'm in.

    Hmmm... Does the same thing happen when the Xbox is connected to something else, or just that TV?

    Only does it when the resolution on the xbox is set to 4K. The tearing stops when I switch it to 1080p. And this is a new occurrence. The I've been able to use 4K UHD and HDR before now. All the other devices I have are not rated 4k and so wont allow it to go to that resolution setting.
