Seiki SE42UGT Streaming - Page 26

Anyone having problems with netflix and half white screen? This has happened about 4 times now and it seems I can easily duplicate it.

I was watching netflix for the first time and finished an episode, when it auto-played to the next episode, the right half of the screen went completely white while the left half played normally. The heads up volume bar showed across the screen 100% (overlayed on top of the normal left half AND the white half). I changed inputs to my hdmi src and the white right half did not go away but I was able to access the on screen menu which again overlayed on top of the white screen. I powered off/on and the display was normal back to 100%.

Again back to netflix, watched a part of a show with no issues, backed out to the menu and changed src to HDMI 3 and boom, right half of screen white. Also, on screen controls display normally as did previously.

I can easily duplicate this in netflix, watch something then back out to any other src or another netflix showing/anything else it happens of which a power on/off is the fix. I tried youtube and this problem doesn't happen. I don't have a vudu account so I couldn't test that. Any ideas?

The other odd thing to me is this type of problem is typically a loose connection or heat separation of the internal components no? I can duplicate this only with netflix (and also note this happens also when the unit is not warm).

OK as the original founder of this thread.... This TV rocks... I am now pulling 4k 60hz off of HDMI 2.0 with a simple GTX 970....... I have no idea what everyone else is doing... but it was plug and play....

Your 970 has HDMI 2.0 port, so no need for an adapter like my 670.


@ pingram

I watched 2 different videos @ 4K in the built in Netflix app; no issues. Why would changing your HDMI source makes any difference? Aren't you using the built in Netflix app?

@r4sh1d

Thanks for testing and posting your results. And yes I know the built-in Netflix does not use the HDMI source but rather my network; it was just to provide as much info as possible and also show that the problem continues even after exiting Netflix. The problem has only occurred after watching a Netflix episode and:

1) Watching the next episode (auto play)
2) Watching a different Netflix show altogether
2) Exiting Netflix and changing the source, i.e. watch cable TV

The menu's (even Netflix's menu) are full screen, just the actual broadcast playback itself is only visible on half the screen (vertically) while the other half is completely white.

I'll try to post up a video if I get the chance.

Totally agree it was plug and game for me too. I love it but the colors are a little weird with video blowing out the reds and making yellow/tan look like bruises

Ok everyone... I am now able to get 4:2:2 and 4k at 60z with both OS X (Hackintosh) and Windows thru a DVI-I to HDMI adaptor. Why or how it is doing this is beyond me. It shouldn't... but it is. Even got Linux running at this as well. With a GTX 970....


Thanks all for this forum....

Each time I've read that someone tried the Club 3D 60 Hz adapter but could not attain 60 Hz, I thought, "He must have overlooked something."

Then it happened to me.

I'm trying to drive my SE42UGT from an HP EliteBook 840 G1, which uses Intel 4400 graphics. At work, I use this monitor to drive two Seiki 39UY04s to 4K at 29 Hz, using an HP docking station, which has two DisplayPort 1.2 ports. My work adapters are Plugables that each cost about $22.

When I take this laptop home, I mate it to a second HP docking station (the same model) to drive my SE42UGT.

Before ordering the 60 Hz adapter, I drove my Seiki 42 at 30 Hz, using a $12 active adapter labeled CableCreation. I had set the Seiki's menu to HDMI 1.4 because when I had set it, out of curiosity, to 2.0, Windows Display Screen Resolution began showing me options for driving 4K at 60 Hz. Honestly, I didn't want to see those resolutions until I'd received a proper adapter. I was afraid I'd mess up the monitor.

To prepare for this day, every HDMI cable I've ever bought has been rated for 18 Gbps.

I installed the Club 3D adapter. But try as I might, I couldn't, and can't, see options for any refresh rate faster than 30 Hz. yes, my Seiki is set for HDMI 2.0; or must I do that independently for each HDMI port? If so, I haven't discovered how.

I've spent a good 90 minutes trying different settings in the display's main menu and maintenance menu, to no avail. I've tried two cables, to no avail. I'll try one or two more.

In one sense, I'm worse off than I was before: When I close the laptop's lid, the laptop goes to sleep and can't be awakened. I must leave the lid open or do a hard restart.

But in another sense, I'm better off than I was: With the Club 3D 60 Hz adapter, I now get 4:4:4 color at 30 Hz! I haven't grabbed screenshots, but for the first time I'm seeing unbroken red letters against the blue field in the test screens. And for the first time, when I'm in Windows Display Screen Resolution, I see the blue screens as a gradient. That alone has mad the 60 Hz adapter worth getting, even though I realize I won't enjoy 4:4:4 when I use the Seiki TV to stream Netflix, Amazon, or YouTube; only when I'm doing work on my computer.

Meanwhile, I've ordered the UpTab adapter; on Amazon and from Uptab's site, it's $49 plus shipping. But on eBay, where I bought it, it's $49 with free shipping.

I can live with 30 Hz, but I can't live in fear of closing my laptop's lid. I'm hoping the UpTab (aka Micro SATA Cables) adapter will cure that problem. If I attain 60 Hz, so much the better.

I'm running windows 10 X64, gtx 670, HDMI is set to 2.0 in the menu. I got the club 3d adapter last week, had a lot of trouble enabling 60Hz; messed around with CRU and patching..etc; it magically worked after i don't how many tries. But, since I want to pass audio through TV to my speakers, under audio settings I didn't have the TV listed for some reason. So I thought I should uninstall nvidia drivers, then used a removal tool to completely remove any traces.. I installed the latest nvidia drivers, but been trying for the past 2 days to get 60Hz back, no luck mad.gif

I ran the nvlddmkm-patcher, restarted the machine, ran CRU, under detailed resolutions, it listed 2016 @ 60HZ, chose custom resolution block, restarted the machine. All I get is either black scree, sometimes red screen, sometimes the whole screen is blue!! I have my shimian 1440P screen hooked up through DVI, it doesn't show any picture here either when restating my machine!! after messing around, it starts up, but the resolution is set to 1080p, with black bars around the screen and sh**, but I'm 100% sure it is NOT 1080P. I've tried reinstalling the darn nvidia drivers, reverting back all the CRU & patching crap. Nothing seems to work! I was using a 1.3 advertised HDMI cable, an old slim cable. Just got this cable a few hours ago:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014I8SSD0?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
but same BS. Is it the adapter? the stupid windows 10? I'm loosing my mind! I tried to test custom resolution under nvidia control panel, but says " test failed: this resolution is not supported by your monitor...etc"



Edit: I got it up to 54HZ, anything higher and the screen turnes to blue; with the lower portion of the screen flickering. I had to "create custom resolution" under nvidia CP in 5HZ increments till I reached 54HZ; but nothing higher frown.gif

Hello All,

Here is what I am getting in OS X 10.11.3. I am using a DVI-I to HDMI. How this is working is really beyond me. I am not real sure if it is 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 or not.
