Force Jetson TX1 to boot into 10 bit RGB/YUV Display Mode (Over HDMI)

I have been trying to boot the Jetson TX1 board into RGB or YUV 10-bit Display mode (30 bpp) over HDMI, but so far don’t have any luck with it.

I tried following things on L4T R24.1, None of them worked:

  1. Adding following lines to /etc/X11/xorg.conf file as follows and restarting lightdm:

    Section “Screen”
    Identifier “screen_test”
    DefaultDepth 10

This fails the display driver and I get the “The system is running in low-graphics mode” Error! ([url]xorg - How to fix "The system is running in low-graphics mode" error? - Ask Ubuntu)

  1. Connecting it to one of the TV which supports 10-bit output (Deep Colour Mode), but the board still boots in regular RGB 8 bit (24 bpp) mode.

    Can anyone please tell me the proper way to boot the system one of modes RGB 10-bit (30 bpp) or YUV 10-bit (30 bpp)?

Hi IS-118,

Those features are not supported in TX1, just under investigating, but no clear roadmap yet.
