Good day FredBelfast,
Sorry to hear this,

To be able to sned a video signal over USB C ouput ojt he system, it needs to have Displayport Alternate (Alt) Mode support. Please check if the system(s) you are testing with have that.

I will have [email protected] send you an email with link to the latest Firmware for the CAC-1504.

Hello,

I have recently purchased a CAC-1504 (Rev: A0-02) adapter but I cannot set it to 60 Hz in 4K mode. (only 30 Hz)
My computer is an MSI GT72 6QE and my monitor is an LG 27UD69.

Do I have to update any drivers?

Thank you for your help.

I have a CAC-1504 Rev A0-01. it has no issue to connect my 4K TV @60hz, however when I connect my Macbook pro to a LG 4k monitor it gets hit or miss. I have LG 43UD79-b which has two HDMI 2.0 ports. thanks for your help.

Hi Guonghua,

Sorry to hear this.

In general …

  • Setup

Setups with TV’s normally work best by making a custom resolution, in this case for: 3840*2160 at 60 Hz with Timing Standard set to CVT-RB (Reduced Blanking).

(For setups with Monitors Timing Standard can remain on “auto”.)

On most TV’s you will need to do some settings like “Enhanced Mode”/ “PC-Mode” and/or “UHD Color” for the HDMI 2.0 port in use. 

Please make sure the HDMI port of the Screen/TV supports 4K 60 Hz, often not all HDMI inputs support that.

Please make sure the HDMI Cable can do 4K at 60 Hz / 18Gbps, like our CAC-1310

  • Custom Resolution

To be able to generate such a Custom Resolution you will probably need an app like SwitchResX since MAC OS does not provide such settings.

Should be something like this, please do make sure to have it set to “CVT-RB”

I will ask [email protected] to send you latest available firmware.

Because of HDMI 2.0a or better HDMI 2.1 Version that support High Dynamic Range.
Is there a newer Firmware Update for my Converter CAC-1504 REV.:A1-00 FW:C002 0008/V7.2b 1708 ?
Thanks in Advance!

Hi Graviton,
There is indeed a newer firmware version than V7.2b, i will have [email protected] send you that by email.
However, the CAC-1504 adapter does not support HDR if that is waht you are looking for. As far as i know there is no DisplayPort 1.4 Alternate Mode, which is needed for HDR support, in the market yet.

Hi MST1407,
thanks again for the new fw.
Yes of course, not yet now, but should be the CAC-1504 works with the Intel Thunderbolt™ 3 controller JHL7x40 series in the future or we need a new Adapter like CAC-1080 ?

on 27-02-2018

Hi Graviton, yes that would mean you would need another adater like CAC-1080 but then with USB C / Thunderbold connector.
