Not sure if anyone else if having this issue but I have my Xbox Series X attached to the HDMI 2.1 port with 4k120hz HDR, ALLM, and VRR (FreeSync Premium showing on game bar) enabled. Whenever I run games like Destiny 2 or Assassin's Creed Valhalla, I noticed that in the opening scene for those games, my screen gets a really nasty flicker. It hurts my eyes whenever the flicker starts because it gets really bright and sometimes noticed it in Youtube (on the console) whenever I watch HDR content

Sometimes I see a slight flicker in Fifa21 like in the stands or lights. I originally had the 55 inch Q70A but returned it and got the 65 inch Q70A. While at first boot, the TV had 0 issues but after the 1066 update, I noticed the flicker returned and wish I had the opportunity to turn back the update since I had no issues then. Weird that it only happens in certain games but regardless I also notice these slight horizontal lines going up when activating VRR on my Xbox and I see it clearly in the main menu of the console. I made sure to troubleshoot everything possible but the only fix I found so far was unplugging the TV for 10 seconds then plugging it back in (the power cable) and it seemed to fix the issue for some reason. Unfortunate that it has these problems but I'm totally fine tu

I just tested more games and so far the worst flicker was in the middle of actual games like the ODST campaign on Halo MCC or some slight flickering in the background of Cyberpunk during cutscenes. I have tried contacting support before but no one has brought a proper reply or solution to this issue I've been having with the 2 Q70A's I had. For now, I'm playing with VRR off and hoping to see the next TV update fixes it or if my TV just didn't support FreeSync Premium Pro as advertised it is.

I am having the same issue with the flickering and the Samsung q70a. The flickering occurs on the Xbox Series X mostly during cutscenes, transitions from menu screens, and when the screen fades to black. I have tried a new HDMI cable and numerous combinations of video settings. I believe the only fix currently is turning off the VRR setting on the Xbox Series X. It seems to be a software issue that I hope is quickly fixed. Let me know of any other potential workarounds.

I recently sent my Xbox for repair just in case it's that. I'll let you know if that was the issue. I got off of messaging support on Twitter a week ago and they told me no one else is having this issue really so I talked with Xbox support to see if it is a repair that needs to be made.
