HDMI Receiver Subsystem v2.0, Software Driver v3.2 - Why do I have problems detecting correct video format when switching to 3840x2160 64:27 4:2:0?


3840x2160p60 (64:27 formats) YUV420, can sometimes be detected as follows:


It can occur under the following conditions:

  • When switching from 3840x2160p60 (64:27 formats) RGB to YUV 420
  • When switching from 3840x2160p60 YUV420 from 64:27 formats to 16:9 formats
  • When the format is 3840x2160p60 (64:27 formats) YUV420, but you plug/unplug the TX cable.

Normally it can be reproduced within 20 switching tests.
