On the OnePlus 7 Pro, it displays fine on first launch and then a black screen on any subsequent launches.

I tried changing the value of "videoscreen.whitelist" in guisettings.xml to "00312001440090.00000pstd,00312001440060.00000pstd" as well as the reverse in the hopes of whitelisting the 90 Hz resolution too but no luck. I also tried adding it as a resolution.
