Minidisplay to HDMI2.0 [email protected] not working

Hi, i have bought a Mini Displayport 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 UHD Active Adapter to use with my 4k Sony TV and my Macbook Pro 15″ 2014, but the only output i can get out of it is [email protected], the same as the output i get plugging the HDMI cable directly on the PC.
What am i doing wrong?
I thought that my Mac was supported since it has Intel Iris Pro 5200.

Can someone help me to solve this thing?
Thank you so much!

Most Sony TV’s need to be set to “Enhanced Mode” before they support incoming signal of 4K 60Hz over HDMI.
Please make sure to have OS version 10.12.6 loaded.
Sometimes it works best by making a custom resolution with timing standard set to CVT-RB (Reduced Blanking). If teh MAC Version of the Intel Grpahics Driver does not offer such setting, you would need an app like SwitchResX to be able to do that.
