OK, so I have the Quadro M2000 in my system; all its output ports are DisplayPorts so I feed my LG 21:9 2560×1080 monitor with DisplayPort cable, and my Samsung SUHD TV – since it only has HDMI 2.0 inputs – with my Club3D DP->HDMI 2.0 active adapter, and a high quality, high speed, HDMI 2.0 compatible cable. I have the LG monitor configured as RGB full range, but of course I wanted to configure my Samsung SUHD panel as YCbCr 422 with at least 10 bpc – but I can not !!!
What happens in the nVidia Control Panel is: when I chose YCbCr422 and click Apply, the bpc drop-down list – only offering 8 in RGB mode – contains the choice of 8, 10 and 12 bpc, which is a good sign that the Samsung panel actually supports these (judging from the fact that when I test YCbCr with my LG monitor, which is 8 bit color depth only, no other values for bpc are displayed in the drop-down list but 8). HOWEVER: when I choose 10 bps, the card communicates with the Samsung panel for some 1-2 seconds, and upon clicking “Apply” – reverts to 8 bpc!
I think I tried everything (including “Enable Video Editing Mode” in the Desktop menu of the Control Panel. and “Force 10 bits per Component” in the 3D Settings – nothing works! Even though the choice of 8, 10 and 12 bits per color is offered, my Quadro M2000 and Samsung 49KS8000 only connect in one of the 2 modes:
– YCbCr422 with 8 bps only, and Limited Output Dynamic range, or
– RGB with 8bpc only and Full Output Dynamic Range
I’m a professional videographer, and I need to monitor my editing of 4K, 4:2:2, 10 bpc video footage from the Sony FS7 camera. PLEASE HELP!
With Best Regards,
PS. I tried to run your fw updater, but it did nothing (exit with errors)
