I got a Sony 4k tv and a old samsung 1080p tv hook up to a splitter than to my pc so need to change between 4k and 1080p resolution. The monitor configuration only allow me to change desktop resolution not active signal resolution. The only way i can do this with nvidia control panel.

Is this something you're able to set in the Windows display properties too? This could be an nVidia-specific thing.

Would you be able to do the following to help troubleshoot this further?
  • Download this tool: https://www.binaryfortress.com/Files/DisplayFusion/BFCustomerTest.exe
  • Configure the monitor using DisplayFusion Monitor Config, then run the tool and save the output
  • Configure the monitor using the Windows settings so that the Active Signal Resolution is correct, then run the tool again and save a second copy of the output
  • Reply with both copies attached

Thanks!

Hello,

just wanted to point out that I've got the same issue using Display Fusion 9.5 Beta 1
(previous steam downloaded version also has the same issue)

When changing resolution with DF 9.5b1, Active Resolution Signal is 4k.
Whereas with windows or Nvidia control panel it is

This issue is blocking when you need to send a FHD signal :
(HDMI cable length or target device hdmi limitation)

Thanks for your help.

Just a quick update on this, we've opened an issue on our list for forcing the active signal resolution. I'm not sure how much work it will be, but we'll definitely let you know when we have it done so that you can test it out.

Thanks!

Just wanted to say I'm having the same issue. Whether Display Fusion is set to clone the 4k display @ 1080p with another monitor, or if it's set to extend alongside my other monitors, it doesn't matter what I have the resolution set to; it doesn't work. I can get it if I set it to only output to the 4k monitor and nothing else, but that is not ideal. Someone higher up was speculating that active signal resolution might be an NVIDIA thing, and I just wanted to clarify that it's not. If you open Windows display settings, and scroll down to advanced display settings, you'll see it's a part of Windows. In the attached screenshot, I was able to make this method work on my gtx770, but after it fried and I replaced it with an rtx2070, I haven't been able to get it going since. When you click apply in the box on the screenshot, the cursor spins for a few seconds, but otherwise nothing happens, and my desktop resolution is set to 1080p with a 4k active signal resolution, with no picture on the screen. Also, I've noticed that it gets really wonky with 30hz vs 60hz; it keeps trying to drop down to 30hz when you try to set it, even though the monitor is capable of 60hz, and coincidentally it appears to put a very heavy load on explorer.exe whenever it is attempting to configure the displays. I hope this info helps you track down whatever the cause is. Here are my specs as well:

DF 9.5
i7 4770k
32GB RAM
MSI RTX2070
6x viewsonic 27" 1080p monitors (top 3 from IGFX, bottom 3 from RTX2070)
1x TCL 65" Roku TV (from RTX2070 and (ideally, if you guys can get this fixed) cloned with bottom middle monitor)

Haven't seen any updates on this post since May; wanted to make sure it doesn't die before it gets resolved. Thanks guys!

Thanks for the additional info! We've made a change in an internal build of the next beta. If you'd like to give it a try, you can download it here: DisplayFusionSetup-9.6-Beta1.exe

Please let me know how it works out. Note that you might need to re-save your Monitor Profiles after updating to this build.

I have this same problem using the Steam version of DF, and never thought to bring it to your attention. lol

The only place I seem to be able to change the active signal resolution is in the NVidia Control Panel. Windows display settings also seem to only change the internal resolution, upscaling it to 4k... at least in every attempt I've personally had.

I put my 4k in 1080p for various reasons (cloning, gaming, streaming, etc), and while it can natively support 1080p, both Windows settings, and DF refuse to use true 1080p.

Since I use the steam version, how would I go about testing this beta? do I need to uninstall the steam version, then install this beta?

You can just download and install the beta with the Steam version, it will automatically pickup your Steam license with no issues. :)

Thanks! I tested by setting to true 1080p, and saving. When I changed to 4k, then changed back to 1080p, it was still upscaled.

This happened both with an overwrite, and a new save. Is there an option that I'm supposed to change first?

If you setup your monitors with Windows (or the nVidia control panel) first then save that as a DF profile, can you load that later successfully?

When I use Windows settings, (which don't change the active resolution) yes. When I use NVidia (which i use to force active display resolution) no.

When forced with NVidia, saved, and then returned to later, it still has the 4k active display resolution. Still has to be overridden by NVidia to get the display to change to real 1080p.
