Black screen on Spectrum whole playing PS5 COD

Today, I started playing Vanguard COD on my PS5 with Spectrum. Have never had an issue until today. The screen keeps going black. In fact I have to press the PS button to get video. The refresh rates are random too. Set to 120 and itll be at 64 and then in middle of game black screen and wait.

Anybody having similar? Not sure if its a PS5/Vanguard issue or Spectrum issue. Seems to keep changing refresh rates. Changed cables. Same thing.

Hi @shsabres,

The issue is likely caused by the VRR feature that landed on PS5 just recently. The feature doesn’t play well with Spectrum, causing problems and blanking.

Our team has been aware of this and is currently working on a firmware update to fix the issue. Until then, I suggest turning off the VRR feature on the PS5 to prevent the problem from reoccurring.


Hi @shsabres,

Our firmware team has managed to come up with an update that potentially fix the issue with PS5 VRR. Please note that it is not an official build yet, so please proceed with caution. If you do decide to continue with the firmware update, please let us know if it works for you!

EDIT: Published the most recent test bin. Much more stable.
