    I bet you Kaitain knows! I have several input connectors on my motherboard that I have no clue what they do.
    But the smart money says they won't let you down load a new and better computer.":O}

    I though it might be helpful to see mine in comparison, a very different result...WHY?

    And should these files be removed?

    Short answer is because you already had mint-meta-codecs and libdvdcss2 installed.

    The other files are harmless - I'd leave them for now.
    Thanks for that. I couldn't find a 46" HiSense H6D, but did find reference to a 43" HiSense H6D. All this tells me is that they're no longer sold.

    Anyway, what all the above tells me is that you've connected via an A/V receiver. Your Denon receiver is providing its own EDID rather than passing through the HiSense unit's EDID. I think you talked about this in another thread.

    Anyway, what we'll eventually try to do is extract the TV's EDID, then force the graphics card to use that, rather than try to negotiate with the Denon unit. Since I don't want to let the magic blue smoke out of anything, it'll be slow steps.

    First off, let's see what your computer can actually see. You don't need sudo for this bit. Can I have the full output of:

    xrandr --verbose

    I initially tried hooking up with the Hisense as my switcher hub, But I could not get the audio to sync with the video, So I went with the Denon switcher. So now I have to force UHD for my Roku. But the set itself won't recognize UHD when it is present..probably the Denon pass thought. A minor but persistent annoyance.":O}

    OH! It probably is a 43 inch. My bad! ":O}

    EDIT: OK, so you have 4K at the moment with 340 drivers - your concern is that you can't use 370s, yes?

    Crud, I can't find the box that held my mainboard in the last system upgrade. Perhaps one of these connectors is in there. Arrgh. They are the up to date ones that supplanted data ribbons in days of old. Those ribbons looked cool, at least to me. BUT they were great blockers of air movement too.

    SATA cable? Or if you're going old-school, then just ATA or IDE cable

    Basically yes.No other drivers will go to 3820, they are stuck at 1920 and won't offer anything higher So I'm stuck at 340 drivers.

    Weather this is a good thing or bad is hard to say as the newer drivers can't do 3820 for me.

    OK, that makes sense. At around revision 364, nVidia enabled support for kernel modesetting, but in true nVidia style, they didn't use a lot of the kernel infrastructure but rolled their own. Among the problems are lack of support for the fbdev high resolution framebuffer.

    What this means for you is that at the moment, you're not making use at all of kernel modesetting, but instead late modesetting, by which time X is starting and negotiating its own screen mode. It's then able to settle on a 4K resolution.

    The steps I'd like to go through to test that this is really the case are:
    1. Dump and extract the EDID your system is currently using. This will allow me to confirm whether it's the Denon's EDID or the screen's.
    2. Upgrade your nVidia driver - you may end up with a few days on 1920x1080 as we're on different timezones while we go through this. Don't panic!
    3. At that point, I'll need to see things like your xorg.log and some output from xrandr etc. to see what your computer thinks is connected to it.
    4. We'll check boot options, initially disabling modesetting to force the nvidia module to use the old method of negotiating a screen (though this will slow down your boot time, which is important to you for some reason ;))
    5. If that's not satisfactory, we'll force the system to use the EDID that we extracted in Step 1.

    Reasonable? If so, then first instruction is:

    sudo apt-get install read-edid

    Thank you Kaitain!

    Shoot, I think I have one or two ATA power supplies in a closet. Note to self: Dude! They'll never be of any use!

    OK, next thing - I'd like to see your current Xorg.log. It'll be easier all round if you attach it as a file, so:

    Code:
    sudo su
    cp /var/log/Xorg.0.log /home/daniel/.
    chown daniel:daniel /home/daniel/Xorg.0.log
    Then in your next reply, select "Upload a File" and upload /home/Daniel/Xorg.0.log

    Next, while still with root permissions:

    Code:
    get-edid -q|parse-edid
    ... and paste the output. Also, let's retain what your system currently sees:

    Code:
    get-edid -q > /home/daniel/4kedid.bin
    (You may need this file later)

    While I'm thinking about it, you'll also need to do some hardware checking:

    i) Ensure the HDMI cable from your computer to the AV unit, and from the AV unit to the TV are both HDMI 2.0 compliant. If only HDMI 1.4 you will not get 4K @ 60Hz whatever we do.
    ii) Ensure that the HDMI cable from your AV unit to the TV is connected to the HDMI-2 port (ARC) on the TV. You have 4 HDMI ports, the two at the back are only good for 4K @ 30Hz, the two on the side are good for 4K @ 60Hz, HDMI-2 will allow you to control the AV receiver from your TV remote.
    iii) Likewise, if I can have the exact model number of your AV unit, I can check for similar restrictions there.

    Looking at supported cards, your GTX 670 is currently supported by the latest 430.34 revision.

    Sure, if in the meantime you can post your Xorg.0.log and edid output as given in post #92 then I can look through those and make sure I'm on the right track.

    Follow each of these steps in turn. First:
    Code:
    sudo su
    
    then type your password. You're now in a shell with root privileges.

    You can just copy and paste the next block - the computer should do it all for you.
    Code:
    cp /var/log/Xorg.0.log /home/daniel/.
    chown daniel:daniel /home/daniel/Xorg.0.log
    exit
    Then copy/paste this instruction
    Code:
    tar -czf /home/daniel/Xorg.0.log.tar.gz /home/daniel/Xorg.0.log
    
    Then, in the bottom right of the message editing box on GoL, you've got 3 buttons - "Post Reply" "Upload a File" "More Options..."
    Click "Upload a File" then click "Choose File" in the dialog that pops up. That will open up a file chooser, which should automatically point to your /home/daniel location.

    Click on the "Xorg.0.log.tar.gz" file you just created in the above, then click "OK". It'll upload the file to the board, at which point you can close that dialog and post your message.

    That's perfect, thanks D~!

    Not to worry, I'm several hours ahead of you, so I'd posted that then gone to sleep :rolling:
