Some other users have reported issues, and RGB Fusion seems to be a buggy POS, but I'm reluctant to RMA as the card itself works great and if it's...

    4k 4:2:2 from a 1080 to a Samsung JS9500 4k TV?

    I play games on my HTPC using a 1080 connected to my 4k TV (Samsung JS9500) It outputs 4k 8 bit fine however if I turn the HDMI UHD Color on so I can watch 4K UHD discs with HDR via a UHD Blu Ray player or my PS4 Pro with HDR then the 1080 only outputs 1080p.
