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:

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

When I had the SE42UGT with the Club3D DP to HDMI 2.0 adapter, I was able to get 4K/60 but only with 4:2:2 color. This is with an nVidia Titan (1st Gen). After the SE42UGT failed and I bought a Samsung 40" JU6500, I was able to get 4K/50Hz and unstable 4:4:4, but nVidia control panel kept saying my TV didn't support 4K/60Hz under custom resolution. I tried a couple of different HDMI cables (Amazon Basics high speed and standard), but the one that worked for me to achieve 4K/60Hz with a stable 4:4:4 color was a well shielded HDMI cable with a Ferrite Choke. The Ferrite core attenuates high frequency EMI/RFI electronic noise. The SE42UGT HDMI 1.4/2.0 selection is per HDMI port. I had a TIVO mini (HDMI 1.4) on port 2 and the computer (HDMI 2.0) on port 1.

Elsewhere in Overclock.net, there's a thread about 4K 60 Hz active adapters. I've listed all five brands I'm aware of in this post.

As if dropping the price to $248 weren't enough: Today through 4pm local time, HHGregg is selling the SE42UGT for just $221 shipped, plus tax! Apply coupon code LUNCHBOX. Edited, 11:20 am: As StammesOpfer points out in post 265, I was wrong: The Feb. 10 discount cannot be applied toward certain TVs, including the SE42UGT.

You don't need to be a member! If you haven't yet joined, you can still use their one-time 10 percent discount on a different purchase--say, a second SE42UGT.

They're also liquidating the Seiki 4K upconverting cable for $10! With the coupon code, make that $8.90!

Fine print excludes the SE42UGT specifically. $248 as still a great price though.

Damn, so it does. Sorry, all; I'll edit my original post, lest someone act in haste.

@ terracode, thanks for the detailed info, I ordered that cable in your link (6ft), but same issues. I then reinstalled windows 10 X64 PRO (clean install) updated nvidia drivers..etc, same BS, can't get past 54HZ. I'm going to contact Amazon and request a replacement for the Club3D adapter and hope it's the cause of this. otherwise, I don't know if it's my gfx card's DP that's acting up, or the TV.

@MarylandUSA Thanks a lot for the heads up, I contacted hhgregg & got the difference $$.

r4sh1d.... its plug and play with the GTX 970 and above. no adaptor needed with HDMI 2.0. I am pulling 4k 60z on Windows 10, Mac OS X 10.11.3 and Linux 15.10. I am actually using DVI-I to HDMI standard cable from amazon...

I've now received the UpTab DisplayPort adapter. It gave me all the same results as the Club 3D. I'm beginning to think that it depends less on the adapter and more on one's graphics card and cable--in my case, Intel 4400 graphics on a chip. I'm about to buy the Accell, but I don't expect that it will let me see 60 Hz or prevent my HP laptop from entering a nonwakable sleep when I close the lid. Heck, i didn't have the latter problem with my HDMI 1.4 adapters. But but those adapters gave me only 4:2:2 color.

Yes, I understand. But I'm just trying to figure out what's causing mine not to work properly @ 60HZ even though it was working fine when I first got the TV; you know? Amazon is sending me a replacement adapter.

I'm waiting for Pascal to see my options in terms of gfx card upgrade; so I'm stuck with my GTX 670 for the time being.
