My external monitor keep flickering via HDMI (10m)
Hello my name is Oudom. I have problem connecting my TV as external monitor.
I would like to use my Sony 4k TV 49'' (model kd-49x8300c) to view when I want to do the CC/Grading. But when I connect it using HDMI, it keeps flickering. I have set in Display settings as Extend monitor and resolution is 4k (I even try 1080p but It still flicker). I have update my VGA to the latest one already.
one thing I notice is, its not flicker all the time. I realized that when I unplug the HDMI cable and plug it again.. it works for awhile. but it come back flickering in no time. and sometime the screen changed to purple color and split it 2 screen on that tv. Is it cuz of my HDMI cable is 10 meter? too long? but its not flicker once I use only this TV as my main monitor (not extend). or is it cuz of my main monitor is 2k and extended it to 4k TV (but I have tried changing my TV to the same 2k res as my Monitor, still not working) ? Please help me!
