Hello Paulius,
Your notebook is capable of outputiing 3840×2160 at 60Hz over the Mini DP 1.2 output.
The adapte is abel to convert taht into HDMI 2.0 signal. Your Monitor has 2 HDMI inputs out of which 1 is HDMI 2.0 or 4K 60Hz capable.   This should work !

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 is capable of 4K 60 Hz or 18Gbps.

Please make sure the Software of the Screen/ TV is updated

Just to stisfy my own curiosity, why dont you just use a CAC-1163 Mini-DP to DP cable to connect your screen ?

every setup I tried to do pluged in HMDI to HMDI, because with adapter I got  no signal.


1) When i tried to make custom resolution it crashed “the custom resolution exceeds the maximum bandwidth capacity. I can get max 34hz.

2) its monitor there aren`t such an option.

3) Yes it support 4K 60 Hz

4) Yes I have right cable.

5) I cant find any updates.

6) its Hp pavilion x360. it have just HDMI port.

Hi Paulius,
ad 6) Are you saying you are using the HDMI output on the Notebook to go to the DP input on the monitor ?
If yes than we found the problem. The CAC-1070 / CAC-1073 is are DP-to-HDMI converters and not bi-directional, so you cannot use them to convert HDMI signals coming from your notebook, inot a DP signal.
Is there a USB Type C output on the Notebook that has Displayport Alternate Mode support?

then i am sorry, but your Notebook is not able to output a 4K 60Hz Signal, since it does not have an HDMI2.0 or DP 1.2 output.
The only solution i can think of is using a product like CSV-1477
That porduct you cannot to a USB3.0 output, the driver/software picks up te video signal compresses and packs it, send sit like data over USB3.0 and the GPU inside the CSV-1477 converts tha into max 2 x 4K 60Hz signal.
The CSV-1477 is USB 3.0 to 2 x DP 1.2
The CSV-1474 is USB 3.0 to 2 x HDMI 2.0
