Thought I'd post this incase anyone cares.    I'm running a 48" CX as a desktop monitor,  with a 3090 gpu.

Calibrating monitors and tv's is relatively expensive,   mostly because it requires specialized hardware and software that most people will never buy.     I don't own any calibration equipment.

My "go-to" source for display reviews is Rtings.    They posted a review of the 48" CX specifically as a desktop monitor.   In that review they posted an ICC color calibration file for their 48 CX.

Now, each panel is different and no two are the same.   But I decided to try their profile anyway,   and I'm really happy with the results.

https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/lg/48-cx-oled   (The ICC profile is halfway down on the right,  under "Post Calibration".   https://www.rtings.com/assets/pages/e64DtyqB/rtings-icc-profile.icm)

In the CX settings remember to,

Rename the CX's HDMI input which you are using to "PC" in the LG Dashboard.

Enable the "Game" HDR picture mode. Rtings calibrated in this mode.   I would reset the picture mode before proceeding.

Enable HDMI Deep Color for your HDMI input.    (picture / additional settings)

Set Dynamic Tone Mapping to HGIG

Set Black Level to HIGH.

In NVIDIA options,

Select "Use Nvidia Color Settings".

Color Depth 32 Bit

Output Color Depth 10bpc

Color Format RGB

Output Dynamic Range Full    (High Black level and Full dynamic range are related settings) 

Then I just typed "Color Management" into the windows start menu search box and set the Rtings profile as default.

In MSFS I set HDR10 to enabled.

Your mileage may vary,  but I like what I'm seeing.    Good luck.

How do you find the FREESYNC / GSYNC play together for you? I am getting a constant "flicker" when on GSYNC. I have the LG 85 NANOCELL OLED 50"

I don't have freesync enabled,  but Gsync is enabled and works well.  Not seeing any flicker.

One consideration though,  there is a difference between Gsync and Gsync Compatible.

The CX is a "Gsync Compatible" display.    It has a Gsync range of 40hz to 120hz @ 4K.

All native Gsync displays have a hardware gsync module, and they can gsync from 1hz to the refresh rate limit of the display.

So basically,  on a CX "Gsync" doesn't work below 40 fps.  Maybe that's a factor.

We just had an LG 77" C1 OLED TV installed in our home on Saturday (yesterday).  Watching football on it today was so unbelievable that I probably will never enjoy it as much on any other TV.  Coupled with a Sonos ARC soundbar and Sonos subwoofer, the sound bounces off every surface in my family room to magically envelop the listener.

I compared OLED to QLED (Samsung) and the blacks in the picture were so superior IMHO on the OLED device.  All I can say is WOW.  I won't be using this TV for flight simulation, but I can only imagine how beautiful the flight can be.  LG's technology is second to none!

Hi Stan,

My brother has the exact same setup, including the sonos sound bar and subwoofer. I too was over there watching football this weekend. So I can agree 100% it is an amazing experience. When we were done we loaded up MSFS on his new xbox and it looked amazing, very smooth and HDR visuals looked incredible. Looks like I'm going to have to save for a new TV.

It's absolutely incredible!  I put my Xbox on another TV for my children and grandchildren.  It keeps them happy and out of the room where I'm watching serious stuff, like football and movies.  That TV is also an LG but doesn't have the Sonos attached to it.  They are perfectly happy and when they are all over for Thanksgiving and Christmas, we adults love the C1 for the good stuff.

You'll probably laugh,  but a part of me wants to fabricate picture frames for a half dozen 48" OLED's and hang them on wall mounts,   so I can have them cycle images of fine art like a private museum gallery.    Sort of like the screensaver does.  

Wake up everyday to different masters.   Degas one day,  Van Gogh the next.    The LG art gallery app already has some interesting paintings in it.

Not laughing. Great idea.  I love the Gallery paintings in the LG C1.  I would like to know how to freeze the one I like for the day (so it really looks like a painting on the wall), and stop the rotation of images.

Went with Samsung 55in QLED to aviod the OLED burn in issue with LG. Multiple flights with the VC view in a static position will cause burn in.
