Try switching the TV to PC Mode with 0 sharpness. Switch off GPU and TV scaling. What timing standards did you select in CRU and Nvidia CC? Try rebooting after adding 60Hz reso to TV EDID with CRU (leave Manual timings unchanged), then add same reso in Nvidia CC. Can you select YCbCr 4:4:4 at that?

My bad, completely missed that part.

@ =LEVI= No worries bud smile.gif

@ zamaracrillio CRU by default showed the right resolution, I didn't have to add it, it just showed up, but some weird resolution under standard reso.:



and I just clicked OK then restarted the machine. After restart, The max resolution was 2280X1430 under both windows & nvidia's display settings.. I do have 2 monitors connected (Shimian lite 27" @ 1440P using DL- DVI, Vizio 55" @ 1080P through HDMI). I unticked the other 2 displays in nvidia's software, now I can see 2160P @ 60Hz, but when I enable it; the whole monitor turns to blue color, and the lower portition is flickering like crazy. I did switch the tv to PC mode, and lowered the sharpness to 0 in the service menu.


Edit: It worked, I played with the nvidia's software (man this thing is buggy as hell) and it decided to accept custom resol. @ 60HZ thumb.gif

You will need a HDMI 2.0 cable. Without it, even with the DP adapter, you will not get 60hz. The cable must also be HDMI 2.0 compliant.

I'm using a "1.3 rated" HDMI cable with no trouble @ 4k 60Hz, I don't think what's printed on the cable matters, as long as it's not terribly slim or something. I wanted to buy an amazon basic 2.0 advertised HDMI cable for $5 at the time of purchasing the DP adapter; but being cheap I thought I'd give the 1.3 cable that I have laying around a try smile.gif


For more than 2 months I've been torn apart between 21:9 or 4k. I was set to purchase wassabi mango 43", but couldn't justify the asking price; under $500 was the sweet spot IMO for IPS + DP. I was like why is everyone even wasting their time with SEIKI, being TN/VA and all. But for $288 OTD, this thing is amazing; knock on wood. I didn't want to upgrade my gfx card to get HDMI 2.0 support, but that club 3d cable did the trick smile.gif

Thanks everyone for the great info. I did submit a ticket with SEIKI a few days ago; haven't heard anything from them.

I don't know if it's useful to anyone, but I have got a copy of the SE42UGT firmware sent to me by Seiki. That might make it easier to test things out without fear of not being able to get it back.

But in the past week alone, the price has been creeping up:
At HHGregg, the price (before appying a 10 percent discount as a new member) has risen from $280 to $300.
On Amazon Prime (U.S.), the identical SE42UMS has gone from $330 to $350 to $400. At $400 plus $30 for an adapter, some would rather spend their money on the $550 Yamakasi 40, or perhaps a used Sony 43 for about $580. At least they'd give me 4:4:4 and, in Yamakasi's case, DisplayPort.

Updated:
If you buy the Seiki, from Amazon or HH Gregg, you pay sales tax. But if you buy the Yamakasi from Amazon, you don't:

$450 for $400 monitor + $29 adapter + $21 tax
vs
$543 complete

@ MarylandUSA

I've crunched the numbers, and in my case; I think this monitor is the best option there is seeing how much it costs, basically I saved $282! for $6 more I can have 2 of those monitors + 6 more inches of real state (I can have someone else use %10 coupon to pick another) the other one will run @ 30Hz though, until I upgrade to Pascal in a few months.

I'm not going to be doing any pro. video/picture editing. I've been using this thing for 2 weeks, and can't seem to notice any difference or discomfort for loosing the 4:4:4, really. I bought it thinking that I might 80% chance return it and get a wassabi mango 43", but that's $750+ last I checked.

I didn't want to go with a TN panel, seeing that a monitor is the most important part of my build and going to stare at it for hours daily, but this thing is beautiful and I think the tech. has progressed a lot. I notice a little bit of shift in the color & viewing angle in the far sides of the monitor sometimes when leaning towards the other side; but only when looking at a white colored website like Google's home page.

I think those Korean sellers are asking for too much $$ profit, the wassabi manago should be under $500 ( I can wait for a week or two for it to arrive here).

Edit: I don't have the receipt on me right now, but I believe I bought it for $288 (10% discount, 7% NJ tax) + $29 adapter, that's $317.

I'm thinking of Amazon shoppers who don't realize that the SE42UMS is sold under a different model number for about $100 less.
Like you, I bought my SE42UGT and adapter for about $300. And like you, I'm fine with the color and don't miss 4:4:4.I bought this baby to use as a monitor. But it's also my household's first 4K TV, so I've treated myself to an Amazon Fire 4K box and upgraded my Netflix account to stream 4K for another $4 a month. I've received my 60 Hz adapter but haven't had time to set it up; I'm doing OK with a 30 Hz adapter. In any case, 4K streamed from Netflix and Amazon is only 30 Hz. Not sure about 4K on YouTube.
