If you scroll down to the bottom where it compares the different cables it shows the specs and lists it as 18Gbit/s
Zeskit Maya is a proven cable that a lot of people around here trust. But if you want to stick with that brand for whatever reason, the cable furthest to the right is listed as 48Gbit/s
The reason many manufacturers get away with listing there cables as 4K120hz is because technically its possible but only with chroma subsampling (specifically 4:2:0)
I bought this and have it behind my desk so it just reached over the edge and my desk space is free. It hovers just over the back edge so I sit the perfect distance from it.
I use a standing desk with my 48 CX and the Ergotron HX. It is very sturdy when moving up and down.
I also bought this VESA adapter for use with it
Use something like this or any of the million similar devices and you're good to go.

Make sure you get an "HDMI Ultra High Speed" certified cable, most issues are from that:
Cable Matters 3-Pack 48Gbps Ultra 8K HDMI Cable 2m with 8K 120Hz and HDR for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, RTX 3080 /RTX 3090, AMD RX 6800 /RX 6900, Apple TV and More - 2 Metres https://www.amazon.de/dp/B081NXV3ZR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_XJH0WX9YH2G1WWXGDBMK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
No idea why the labeling on UK amazon is so shit, but this appears to be from Zeskit.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Not sure if these are available in the UK but I got a 3 pack of these and I have been using them with multiple HDMI 2.1 devices since November: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B084RFQPSP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1&pldnSite=1
Is "instant game response" turned on in the CX's settings?
Try setting the resolution to 1440p, 4:4:4, and 120hz. I had some issues with a 2.0 cable until I did that.
If you need a long 2.1 cable, I recommend the Ruipro fiber cable.
DDU your drivers and do a clean install. Check your cable, I had to try 3 different cables that were advertised as 2.1 cables and only 1 worked.
This is the cable that worked for me. Keep it at or under 10-15 ft. The longer cables will have issues unless they're expensive fiber optic.
I just wanted to let you know, I found a solution that (so far) is working for me. I started using DisplayFusion (perhaps other multi-monitor software would work as well). I set up three different monitor profiles:
Then I followed the steps found on this post that shows how to load a monitor profile on startup. I set it for my third profile with the LG CX disabled, and now I can turn my computer on without having to turn my LG CX on.
Also I can change monitor profiles using a drop down that I have set to a hotkey for easy switching. You can find how to do that here.
Maybe this solution will also work for you. Hope it helps!
I like it too. Works great for my set up. It’s super easy to put together and is sturdy. It doesn’t move around unnecessarily.
I use this since I have my TV set up in front of a window. I'm about 3' from my TV now and it feels much nicer than when I had it on my desk.
I ordered this for mine. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GFRP5HT/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Still haven't received it yet but Ive read good reviews from owners of the cx 48
Since this is a TV and not a monitor, I went with a wall mount. Got this mount and centered it on the wall behind my desk. Works great and don't have to fiddle with aligning it or anything.
That cable won’t work. The longest certified cable is 15 feet.
You’ll need this:

I currently have a beanbag "chair" for gaming but really want something a bit higher (as I'm 6'4"), and preferably with armrests.... after seeing your photo I looked on Amazon and saw this https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08K3PK65Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_E7XD1Y698AR6D6VCZ8GS
It looks great but want to make sure they are durable and comfortable.
Yea, don't go with the $130 one linked, that's a waste of money. Club3D has HDMI certified cables for 48Gpbs and the 9' one is $25.
I picked mine up here and have had 0 issues at 4k HDR @ 120FPS.
If you need longer than Zeskit's 10ft, I've been using 4x of these at 15ft from FSU. I have the CX 65" and my inputs are as follows: HDMI 1-Xfinity cable box, HDMI 2-JBL 9.1 soundbar eARC, HDMI 3-PS5, and HDMI 4-Xbox Series X.
My soundbar has passthrough, so I have an HDMI switch connected to: Switch, PS3, and N64. I have not once had any blackouts or anything, so these cables are pretty good for being 15ft long, good luck comrade!

I bought it.. fuck it.
You're right about the cable being the issue, I got this one and it worked flawlessly so far. https://www.amazon.com/48Gbps-Compatible-Netflix-Playstation-Samsung/dp/B07S1CGQ9Z/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=ultra+high+speed+hdmi+cable+2.1&qid=1617133353&sprefix=ultra+h&sr=8-3
Edit: the same brand also manufacture smaller and longer versions of the same cable if needed.
Have you try and disable live plus? Also I'm using zeskit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S1CGQ9Z/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_fFIeGbWH7KTNX?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 and its working fine i have lg c9 with rgb, full 12bit 4k 120@mhz
Probably the most basic part of the setup haha:
I've always had my monitors as low as possible. My previous screen was a 32-inch 4K monitor and I had it all the way down. I find my eyes being in line with 75% of the height of the screen is quite comfortable. I couldn't get the CX any lower as that would require me lowering my desk and my arms wouldn't rest comfortably anymore. So now my eyes are about 60% to the height of the CX.
I used this mount: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07YWWXFL1
putting aside the software/firmware related issues. i use this cable with my CX48 and MSI Ventus 3090 which has worked perfect.
Check this out. Fits the CX 48 and 55 stand perfectly.

i mean they make one? https://www.amazon.com/UPTab-DisplayPort-Adapter-displays-4096x2160/dp/B01B6ZOMIS
Im just not sure how great they would work. With Amazon's return policy i suppose you could just give one a try... You can also set your pc to display . It wont look perfect but for OP, 4k really isnt a great choice anyway.
PERLESMITH Universal TV Stand - Table Top TV Stand for 32-55 inch LCD LED TVs - $34 Amazon US at time of this post.
Not sure what the simpit mount is but this is what I use with my C1 48 along with Vesa adapter and it's been great.
Cheers, mate - PERLESMITH Universal TV Stand - Table Top TV Stand for 32-55 inch LCD LED TVs - $34 Amazon US.
My desk has a wall across the back of it -- can't use a monitor arm. The TV stand was "a happy little mistake" that worked perfectly lol.
mounting behind the tv is possibly, the vesa mount hols are your friend here, option exist all over the range for connecting things to those hole patterns because of the digital signs and conference room screens you see everywhere in stores and businesses.. using the vesa holes to mount the tv and hang a pc is also possible, costs more. You can even get pull out slides and shelfs etc..
Quick amazon to an affordable thing https://www.amazon.com/HumanCentric-Universal-Adjustable-Computers-Electronic/dp/B08ML8NF2G/ref=sr_1_12_sspa?keywords=mini+pc+vesa+mount&qid=1671336026&sr=8-12-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyT081WUFPU0lWM0kyJmVuY3J5cH... you may well end up having to adapt vesa hole patterns but thats easy..
Is there any particular reason you want to run them at the same time? I ask because I have a 65"C1 & a 48" CX in a similar layout. I have a PC & my PS5 that I mix and match on each screen.
Now I only have a RTX 3090 with one HDMI 2.1 port. Now this doesn't solve your problem but it's something lol. I run a 15/20' Zeskit certified cable from my 65".
Now, I have these running out of the back of my PS5 and Gaming PC work fine everything VRR you name it works. This allows me not to wear out the HDMI port built in the PS5 or the PC. And all I do is quickly plug/unplug whichever device to swap screens. Simple and I have the cable hidden. If I am gaming on my 48, I have the 65" running as a TV/Movie screen. That is why I asked do you really need the 65" as an extended display?

It wasn't too difficult! I went onto Amazon and got this VESA mount and this barndoor hardware set
I did have to drill 2 holes to get the hanging wheel bracket to bolt onto the Vesa mount. Then I added some long bolts on the bottom of the VESA mount to rest against the drywall. I added double nuts to those long bolts to adjust the monitor angle and felt pads on the ends to rest against the drywall.
Yeah sure. It is in the review up there but you can find it here too:
In summary it is just a TV stand xd
VIVO premium arm mount is great, holds my 32lbs ASUS PG42UQ elevated.
My C2 48 is being held up by this stand. Great price and sturdy
VIVO Black Ultra Wide Screen TV Desk Mount for up to 55 inch Screens
Thanks. It's from X-raypad, it's called Aqua Control+, they have more designs and different mat types and sizes.
You can get one from here: https://shop.x-raypad.com/
And the monitor arm I got it from Amazon (Amazon Spain, but it should be available from the other werehouses too). Link: https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B082B6FBYK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
a bit pricey but future proof.
Ordered the monitor arm used for CA$100, condition said "Good" but it honestly looks brand new. Happy with the purchase over an ergotron! I don't plan on moving the monitor with full articulating motion, just a simple swivel to reach for cable inputs and does so smooth.
The VESA mount is a custom job, I drilled 4 holes at 300x300mm in an old computer case door. Bought screws locally the right length (1.25"), super solid.
Yes, it's the Fasgear cable - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BJZHWZM9?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details
I found they had more reviews on the EU amazon site and even saw some reddit posts. So far so good!
I really want cablemod but the cable wouldn't be here until January. I also want the 180/90 deg adapter but not sure when those will be available so this will do for now!
I’ve never had or seen that and I’ve been using my c1 48” for months now on a evga 3080 ftw3.
I’d start with a new cable first. what I use
Otherwise I’d start looking in your nvidia control panel settings and see if there’s anything weird that would over ride each other like
Using this and the bracket it came with :)
Probably you need to change HDMI Cable, Buy a expensive cable, cheap cables never work fine, When i bought my TV i had to use a cheap HDMI cable and the 15FT Cable just provide 4k 30hz i changed to this, its certified. I have 15FT version and i play 4k 120 Hz with the 3060 TI RTX
HDMI Cable Amazon
Wayfair no longer has it on sale but Amazon has the same one for $169.32.
Flash Furniture 6-Foot Rectangular Wood Folding Banquet Table with Clear Coated Finished Top.
Usually previous year LG models drop in price around February, so I'm sure this price will be nothing special in about 1 to 2 months.
So what's your experience with this company, amy claims?
I read some of the trustpilot stuff about them(tho tbf people are more inclined to leave negative reviews) and they seem very forthcoming with communication and a willingness to work with customers.
I also prefer to deal with stuff like this over the phone because it's a lot harder to bullshit someone on the phone then it is in a email, so this is a plus with them!
39 inches is pretty deep. You could even mount it on somthing like this and have it floating behind our desk and even pull your desk out a few more inches to give you more distance.
I had a 30 inche desk and had a stand like this but even that was too close for me. In your case it might be good though.
It holds 11kg and 42" weights 9,4 or something. You need a vesa adapter but it works great. I believe this, ergtron LX and HX are only monitor arms that hold LG C2 and Amazons is direct copy of more expensive and highly rated Ergotron LX
Yeah. If you see glitches / flashes it is basically always the cable. I once had a 5m cable which was good in the beginning but started to show glitches after several months.
Im now using fiber cables in 5m and 10m:
No issues so far. The best part is, fiber cables are nicely thin and ultra flexible.
I haven't tested it but you could try a cable like this one. The last post in this thread on Hardforum claims that it works.
Im using this HDMI 2.1 switch that can be setup as 1 input 2 outputs or 2 inputs to 1 output. It has a button on it that can be used to switch the inputs, I have two of them that I use to switch my pc / PS5 between my 48inch C1 at my desk and my 65inch c1 for couch gaming, VRR and everything just works.
I use this:
Fits my Logitech Brio perfectly. It leaves about 3mm of clearance above the monitor, to allow tilt and swivel.

Works perfectly. apparently it may be a little weak in the pivot joint for widescreen curved monitors but it's been great for the C2
Just a basic one from Amazon.
Worked perfectly fine.
I'm going to buy this the height would be perfect if it was one or two inches higher.
Im running 12700k | 3070 RTX. DLSS\FSR is a bliss. 4k is easily manageable. I recomend these if you want a desk led strip or to put behind the screen. (its amazon spain but you can search for it on your preferred one.
wait so actually you sound like you know wtf is going on here hahah so maybe I can ask you: My 3070ti (laptop edition) doesn't have 2.1. Cringe, I know.
I'm trying to do Thunderbolt 4 (DP 1.4) to HDMI 2.1. I bought this cable at BestBuy but I think it's struggling as the colors are all washed out. I also ordered the Cable Matters USBC to HDMI 2.1 cable and will try that when it gets in, but are you saying that cable's no good compared to their usbc to hdmi adapter + using a 2.1 cable?
This was a really good video on reviewing several different mounts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bq8kK_vljE&feature=youtu.be
I plan on eventually buying the Mounting Dream MD2380. I have no idea what the UK availability is like, but a similar product will do.
Do note that the LG C2 is surprisingly light for it's size and only weighs 20 so odd lbs. This means you can get away with a significantly cheaper wall mount.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MIBN16O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1, I think he is referring to that which I plan on using with my c2 42, but you will need a vesa mount from 100x100 to 300x200.
It's a Vivo Extra Tall monitor mount. The leg rest I actually picked up from Goodwill ages ago, not sure what brand it is. For similar ones you can search for a Lounge Chair Foot Rest.
hey i'm looking at the same thing, I want to buy LG C2 42" for my macbook 14 but it doesn't support HDMI 2.1, however, I found this adapter i'm not sure if it would work. been trying to see if anyone has gotten their macbook to reach 120 hz
works like a charm, you send a 1080P signal to the box and a 4k signal to the TV. So I have 4k 120hz VRR on tv with still syncing lights. GOW looks so beautiful with this. On about 80 fps with Hue lights.
I’ve got you. I went through 3 cables until I settled on this perfect beast. Have been running my PC upstairs on my TV downstairs at 4K120 with no cutouts at all.
8K Fiber Optic HDMI Cable 50ft,... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09KZD4Z5C?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I just bought this for my 4k projector cable, works fine. Any certified directional cable with a chip to boost signal should work ok, but you're better off moving things closer if you can. I didn't have a choice.
Ultrawide Monitor Arm,... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08XZ5LRQW?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Used this extender VIVO Steel VESA Mount Adapter... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07LB4R7GM?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share and had no complaints with it.
I also tried wall mounts. I mounted it above first, and then inline and still didn’t like it. In my experience the desk arm is the way better.
You need a HDMI 2.1 Fiber cable for 30 feet, no way around that if you want 4k 120 4:4:4. The length is too long for copper.
This was the adapter I used when I had a 2080 and it plugged into t he virtual link port on the GPU (USB C) not sure if the 2080ti has that.
I had the same issues. I went through 4 different cables. I got the Zeskit Maya 8K 48Gbps Certified... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07S1CGQ9Z?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
And that seems to have solved the issues.
Hope that helps
Here’s a link for the one I use with my Projector. Have my AVR connected to one port for all home theatre use. Then have game console connected to the other to reduce as much latency as possible.
I would definitely recommend the two best options you have on your hand by other commenters. Rework the ports and get external enclosure for that SSD, then transfer everything to it. But I see above you keep all your consoles active for whatever reason, and honestly you do you on that. If it were just a PS4 Pro then I would push you more but I see you have all the old ones as well so it’s more of an enthusiast/subjective thing with no sound objective reasoning (we all have such tastes).
Most importantly, have fun!
Using this one works well.
Buy this, im using it right now. 4K@120hz 10bit RGB, easy pisy
(i also use the same cable for the PS5, ofc a second one xd)
I'm running Zeskit Maya HDMI cables, and I keep that input on Game Optimizer. I checked yesterday, and I actually have VRR enabled, with Game Optimizer set to FPS. Every once in a while when I switch to the input I'll see the no signal message, but pressing the Xbox button seems to get me around it. I'd say maybe once a week I have to turn VRR off, exit settings, turn VRR back on, and exit settings to bring things back.
Hi, I have a similar problem:
I have to buy a new TV that does everything ...
The one perfect for TV, gaming, multimedia, etc .. looks like LG EVO C2 / C1.
I should connect a Rog Zephyrus s17 with USB C (display port) to the LG's HDMI 2.1. I know there are very good stable 4k 120hz HDR adapter cables .. but none guarantee VRR / G-sync ...
This seems to work fine with C2:
let me know
Standing floor mounts are Great products. You will have to pull your desk out from wall a few inches mind you.
But if you dont want to drill holes, or dont want it perma in that spot.
Was it this cable? I see several reviews saying it works and gives the full 48Gbs
I purchased this one and it works good. I had to tighten it up but once that’s done, i can move it around easily and it barely wobbles.

My buddy picked up the Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2.4 Channel Dolby Atmos/DTS:X and he loves it.
Zeskit Maya are certified HDMI 2.1 and i purchased them under recommendation from Vincent at HDTVTest, i tried the 6ft and 10ft models and they worked flawlessly for me so far.
This is the cable I am running on my c2, has worked great, 4k 120 no issues.
Its just a rubber standoff feet with adhesive on it. You could just measure it and order it from amazon.
somthing like that. If you are worried about it not matching, just take the other 3 off and replace all 4.
Or just get a pack of taller ones, and put them on each corner, and leave the old 3 there.
Hi, I have the same problem with Lenovo Legion 5 82JU00PWUK.
I can run 4K@120Hz + 8bit colour depth Only.
Only when I lower lower to 60hz then I can push to 10bit colour depth.
I have LG C1 48 OLED connected to Legion 5 l. Ultra colour depth is activated in LG C1 48 OLED.
I tried legit cable tested by Vincent (HDTVtest) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lK2exL5xIbs
And still only 8bit colour depth.
I also check with this cable >>> https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08SLR3HW9/ref=cm_sw_r_apa_i_CDYKYA8TX71PRQA27CBY_0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
And original cable from ps5 was also tested. Still only 8bit colour depth was able to achieve in .
I updated to the latest nvidia geforce drivers, no better results.
Apparently hdmi port on Legion laptop is limited to 8bit colour depth in . What a shame
If you’re in the US, the Amazon basics monitor arm is supposedly a rebranded Ergotron, and gets a lot of positive marks around Reddit, especially for heavy displays. It’s normally $100, but on sale for $65
That looks exactly like my chair, Do yourself, and your elbows and favour and get these:
I had this problem also, it was a fake HDMI 2.1 certified cable, Once I got another one it worked well. I got the MAXONAR Ultra High Speed HDMI cable for $20 and worked like a charm.
Do you mind sharing the settings you have on the TV. I just got a 48 A90K and am looking for optimal VRR settings and am curious what folks have setup from the tv.
Here’s the led strip I got for my 75”:
A cord cover would also clean up the space underneath nicely:
Thanks a lot! The screen is this little sort of mini-ultrawide one I grabbed on Amazon. I just 3D printed up a case for it. There's a number of brands that make them.
Soundbar is the Soundblaster Katana V2.
I’ve got my ASUS PG42UQs mounted with this Vivo arm. The ASUS is heavier than the C2 so should work for both. You need to buy an additional VESA kit to use the arm fyi

That adapter is expensive has tons of bad reviews but I haven't used it myself. The USB C adapter I have been using for over a year is great.
VirtualLink has the full capability of DisplayPort 1.4 with Display Stream Compression. If the adapters are using Thunderbolt it might be limited to 40 Gb/s but with DSC that should still allow you to do up to 8k 60hz with full 4:4:4 RGB colour.
Universal TV Stand - Table Top TV Stand for 27-55 inch LCD LED TVs - 9 Level Height Adjustable TV Base Stand with Tempered Glass Base & Wire Management, VESA 400x400mm
This is what I used to put my C2 in the corner on my desk. I got it from Amazon and had a bit of a tile forward/back option built in.
No its not. Bought these and never looked back.
7.1 sourround sound with 3D audio. So comfy I've literally worn them to bed.

Edifier USB Speakers great sound and best price
I have no issue with a £10 cable from Amazon, this one here:
Try looking for it or a similar one on US amazon.
I ended up getting one of those cheaper "heavy duty" arms on Amazon. It deals with my C2 just fine and is fully adjustable. The only thing that I'm missing from the HX is the ability to lock the screen rotation. On the arm that I bought, it's very easy to knock the screen off its horizontal position when you're moving it.
I wish I could have kept the HX, but with the inability to buy the non-HD pivot, I'd never be able to comfortably use it with the C2. I'm also reserving myself the right to go with multiple smaller monitors at some point, which is where the HX would be completely useless.
This is the one I used to mount my C2 with the AmazonBasics arm:
It came with all the necessary hardware to attach the plate to the TV and monitor arm (including screws, bolts and standoffs).
