Question Anyone planning on a new TV &/or AVR?

As per title really,

I’ve got an LG OLED 557V. I got it cheap and 2nd hand as it has a small burn in mark, which is only visible in certain scenes, so not really an issue.

However, we’re in the run up to the SX launch and in isolation so thinking changes. ;)

I gather that there aren’t any HDMI 2.1 AVRs yet, so that rules that out for a while, but I’m thinking of maybe upgrading my TV.

I need to also understand the full ins & outs of HDMI 2.1 to see what spending cash on this new kit will actually give me vs £ spent.

Why not hold off on the TV use the Xbox with your existing equipment initially, and then upgrade after having it for a year or so then upgrade your TV/ AV gear. Give your console a new lease of life after getting used to it sort of thing.

I was considering it , and as my 1080p TV died forcing an early upgrade to 4K I now have to consider an AV receiver upgrade as my current one doesnt pass 4K through it. Likely I will wait until closer to black friday to see what I can get a deal on.

My plan was to get a LG 65CX during Black Friday to go with the X but given current circumstances I doubt that will be happening.

To get hdmi 2.1 certification it is enough for the ports to have 'elements' of a 2.1 port, not all of them. Thus it is possible for '2.0 ports' to be compliant....

I was planning on upgrading my AV receiver and TV with ones that have 4K and Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync but I don't think my family are too fond of that and want to downsize the AV gear. So I am most likely going to get a 4K TV with Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync and maybe a small Soundbar :(
