4k on hdmi 2.0

I have 4K Philips 28" 4K LED 288P6LJEB/00 with HDMI 2.0 and geforce 970 also with hdmi 2.0. But I am unable to get 60 Hz with 3840x2160 in Linux. Is there any option I can use in xorg.conf.

Could you elaborate? There are a lot of us in the forum that have been having the same issue without success.

The Philips Brilliance 288P does NOT support HDMI 2.0 properly. I do not believe Knut49 even has this screen…

It only supports HDMI 1.4 and DP 1.2 (which is capable of 4K input - I’m using it to write this post). If you own this screen like me you will know that the HDMI 1.4 / HDMI 2.0 option which should be below the DisplayPort 1.1 / 1.2 option and above the reset option (in the monitor setup menu).

Philips tech support are offering refunds on this screen since they do not current sell any monitor capable of 4K @ 60Hz so can’t even send replacement item instead.

So to all having issues sorry - you need to contact Philips for a refund if you need HDMI 2.0 input.

I have a Philips PHL 288P6L which support 4k with 60 hz.

Prove it.

The 288P6LJEB/00 does not support 4K over HDMI2.0. Philips do not sell ANY monitor capable of 60Hz @ 4K over HDMI 2.0. The specs in the manuals and on boxes etc were incorrect according to Philips tech support.

They knew the drill when I called, they were incredibly nice about it though. The lady I spoke to was very knowledgeable and incredibly nice about the situation. In fact I think she was rather embarrassed by their marketing dept’s mistakes.

Companies such as Philips don’t go round advising customers their monitors don’t support 4K @ 60Hz over HDMI 2.0 and offer refunds immediately no questions asked (we had a nice chat, it wasn’t as if I was a customer from hell). It was also confirmed by her colleagues too.

If your monitor does support 4K over HDMI 2.0 you won’t have a problem showing the HDMI 1.4 / 2.0 setting option in the monitor’ setup menu which is MIA on all 288P’s.

Prove you’ve got it running at 4K over HDMI 2.0 instead of just a load of xorg text gumph and help dchurch315 and others with this monitor to get it working 4K @ 60Hz or your word on this or any other topic is worthless.

Could you share your EDID?

nvidia-settings->GPU-0->HDMI-0(Or DFP-0 and name of the monitor)->Acquire edid

If it says Max dot clock 600MHz, it really is hdmi2.0(well it’s in binary form, it have to be parsed). You should even see it on /var/log/Xorg.0.log(edit. oops, /etc/X11/Xorg.0.log), were should be parsing information of your edid too. Nvidia have some yuv tweaking on windows side, where you can get 4k60Hz over hdmi 1.4. But I haven’t heard it could be possible with xorg.

Good advice Tuke81, My Linux install is still waiting to get done on my new rig so I went another direction.

These days I’m more of a Hackintosh/BSD user and only really use Windows for gaming. I installed OSX Sierra the other day, just waiting for Nvidia webdrivers to use new 1070 in OSX. If Windows does weirdness to EDID info I can try and get it out of SwitchResX in OSX but I expect the results will be the same.

My Philips Brilliance 288P6LJEB/00 displays the following EDID info (done in Windows via EDID Viewer & MonitorInfoView):-

For the DP it’s EDID is version 1.4 with a max pixel clock of 600Mhz, vert = 23-80, horiz = 30-160Khz
For the HDMI Port it EDID version is 1.3 with a max pixel clock of 300Mhz, vert 23-80, horiz = 30-99Khz

Anyways to prove the limit I used the 300Mhz as a barline to cross andupped the refresh over the HDMI 1.4 Port to a max of 34Hz before I reached the pixel clock limit. Go over the 300Mhz and guess what blank screen.

Knut49 is full of bull**** This monitor does not have a HDMI 2.0 port. Philips told me the truth, I wonder why he’s lying, what has he to gain? Fake kudos for getting something impossible to work maybe?

I had to change som option in the menu for the monitor to enable hdmi 2.0. This is my EDID

The option is MIA because the monitor spec is wrong. It simply isn’t there. Philips have confirmed the manual is wrong and the setting DOES NOT EXIST on this monitor.

Video of you actually accessing the settings menu or I’m still calling you out to be billy bulls*it. Anyone can hack a EDID to try and prove a pathetic point…

We should close the the threads. I have probably another Philips monitor that is bought in Europe not US. but I did have to change the default in monitor menu as shown on page 8 in the manual http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/2/288p6ljeb_27/288p6ljeb_27_dfu_aen.pdf. Thingi please provide me with a source since Philips has not change their manuals and personal communication do not count.

I bought mine in Europe too.

Philips are happy for any Euro customer to receive a refund due to no official support for HDMI 2.0. I’ve spoken with them already. Feel free to phone their support line for your country they will tell you what they told me.

Philips sell ZERO monitors with 2.0 support, you’ll notice the screen’s updated model is 5k and Dual DP only.

I’m sending mine back via the UK retailer I bought it from since they have agreed to supply me a new Dell S2817Q as a replacement.

I’d be interested to know the firmware revision and manufacturing date on your screen etc. I’m happy to post mine when I get home.
