XL2546 owners + AMD video cards

Postby Falkentyne » 08 Mar 2018, 13:09

Can any XL2546 owners who have current AMD video cards (290X or newer please) please DISABLE DyAc (benq blur reduction) in the service menu and then tell me if FREESYNC becomes available in the AMD settings after power cycling the monitor?

Service menu: Power off, hold button#4 for 5 seconds, power on while holding button 4, then release when a screen appears.
Press button 4 to enter the service menu and disable DyAc.

Then power cycle the monitor.

P.S. It's my understanding that Blur Busters Strobe Utility 2.0 can allow you to turn on/off DyAc without needing to access Factory Menus.

1. Launch Strobe Utility 2.0 (or later)
2. Disable the "Enable Strobe" checkbox
3. Quit Strobe Utility
4. Power cycle your monitor.
5. See if FreeSync becomes available.

While the "Enable Strobe" doesn't immediately enable strobing on early XL series, it apparently does on the XL2540/XL2546 series. So that saves trips to the Factory Menu.
