    hi all,

    i am new here and this if my first post.

    After reading lot of different threads etc i am still struggling to solve this issue.

    I have following specs on my Dell T5500.

    CPU: Intel Xeon E5606 2.13Ghz
    GPU: Gefornce 1050TI 4GB
    RAM: 12 gb
    PSU: Dell 875W
    OS: Windows 10 Pro 64x

    Connected to Denon AVR X-2300W (Dolby Atmos 4K enabled AV receiver) via HDMI Premium Cable

    This AV Receive is then connected to Panasonic LED TV TX-58DX802B (4k UHD display) using HDMI Premium Cable

    My problem is....

    No matter what i do i can only get maximum 1920 x 1080p @ 60Hz resolution.

    what is it that i can do to get 3840 x 2160p resolution?

    additional problem. I do not have NVIDIA Control Panel on my desktop menu or even under windows CP the NVCP doesnt work.

    hi mate,

    the cables are HDMI 2.0 as anything less and Denon will display blank screen.

    Done DDU and tried to re-install the Nvidia drivers but new drivers installation doesnt work at all.

    so just solved the NVCP problem by DDU and by installing creator version instead of game ready driver.

    But still cant get UHD resolution. not even at 30Hz.

    If both the HDMI MONITOR 1 and HDMI MONITOR 2 connectors are
    connected and “Resolution” is set to “Auto”, the signals are output with a
    resolution that is compatible with both TVs. (v p. 167)
    When the “Resolution” setting in the menu is not set to “Auto”, set the
    resolution in “Video” - “HDMI Monitor 1” and “HDMI Monitor 2” to one that is
    compatible with both TVs. (v p. 213)

    then something in your chain is not hdmi 2.0 compatible.

    so i have now connected my PC directly to the TV using Premium HDMI cable but still only 1080P @ 60Hz is best i can get
    also
    as I have an android TV box and its desktop resolution was UHD @ 60Hz while connected via Premium HDMI cable i have. So i think cable is fine but there is something else going on here

    That's strange for sure. I wonder if it's Windows itself not detecting the TV properly from its EDID, what does your NV control panel list the TV as?

    As a workaround you could try forcing it by adding DSR factors in NV's control panel and then selecting 4k60 from the resolution section of the CP.

    This unit mightly only do 4k60 at 4:2:2 or 4:2:0, and you need the X2400 or later for Enhanced mode to do 4k60 at 4:4:4 8bit.

    But it could also be you need to use one of the 2 hdmi ports closest to the output port.

    also make sure this is off

    4. Make sure, your AVR compatible to the HDR format the source device is outputting. Please see this FAQ for more information. If you are using a 2017 (or later) model, please make sure, the 4k Signal Format setting in the AVR - if available - is set to Enhanced. You can find this settings in Video section of the menu of your AVR.

    TV is displayed on NVCP as Panasonic TV but under Windows 10 Device Manager>Monitor is Generic Monitor (not Panasonic TV)

    Tried DSR which turbed NVCP in 4K resolution Mode but when tried Netflix it forced the resolution to 1080P @ 60Hz

    i am now thinking something more fundamental. What if the CPU isnt up to the task?

    the CPU would only be a factor if you're aiming for Blueray's in PowerDVD or similar software (since addin cards can't do PAVP)

    So what you are saying is that the CPU won't be an issue here?
    I would like to get NETFLIX to show 4K

    on the actual Denon Product Info document (AVR-X2300W_EN02.pdf) it clearly says

    4K/60 Hz full-rate pass-through, 4:4:4 color resolution, HDR and BT.2020

    But the problem is that the desktop connected directly to the TV isnt even giving 4k @ 30Hz

    don't mistake subsampling and rates, they are still meeting their product brief by providing 4k60 only at 4:2:x

    BT.2020 is misleading because it provides for 1080p HDR at 4:4:4 but the 4k format is 4:2:x

    >
    HDMI 2.0 supports the Rec. 2020 color space.[15] HDMI 2.0 can transmit 12-bit per sample RGB at a resolution of 2160p and a frame rate of 24/25/30 fps or it can transmit 12-bits per sample 4:2:2/4:2:0 YCbCr at a resolution of 2160p and a frame rate of 50/60 fps.[15]

    but then why my TV is not giving 2160p while directly connected to the PC?
