So I finally got my spectrum, and when it works, it’s great!
But I’m having some random issues which I’m curious if others have encountered.
Sometimes when turning on or coming back on after being asleep, the image is vertically sheared/shifted (images below). Sometimes takes multiple times of turning off/back on to fix, with a different form of this shearing/shifting each time. Very rarely there’s a temporal shear, where it looks normal if nothing is in motion, but when things are moving, it’s clear that a portion lags behind the rest.
When the monitor turns off after 10 minutes of inactivity (windows power setting), it actually disconnects from the computer, rather than just going to sleep, which means all my windows move to other monitors and 3d programs crash due to the monitor connecting/resolution changing.
It takes a long time to turn on, both when initially turning it on, and when resuming from sleep.
When turning on HDR in games, the screen goes black and white (complete greyscale, no color at all). Sometimes if I save the HDR setting and exit the game and re-launch then it’ll apply and seem to work, sometimes not.
The back of the monitor and the power block both get quite hot to the touch (also the screen it’s self). Much hotter than any of my other monitors. This is concerning both for the longevity of the product and for power draw (and heating up the room)
I’m on firmware 102R875.
I’m hoping most of these can be solved with future firmware updates. The heat issue is the only one I’m really concerned with not being fixable via firmware
