*Linux* Output range (Broadcast RGB) on Displayport Automatic sets to Limted

Hi.

I'm using Intel GPU on Linux and Windows with both an 8th Gen NUC (Iris Plus 655) and an i5-3470S on an Intel DH77DF motherboard (...Intel all the way? 🙂 )

Windows detects the correct output range on several monitors (Dell P2314H, Iiyama XUB2493HSU-B1 and Dell U2419H) correctly and outputs Full range/Full RGB.

Linux however seems to default to Limited 16:235 on both the NUC and DH77DF system and with all 3 monitors.

Using xorg you can have a startup script to use xrandr to force Broadcast RGB to Full but on Wayland/Gnome there's no easy way to do this.

System is running Fedora 33 and 5.9.8 Kernel (latest Fedora Kernel available)

I've also tried a live boot USB with both Gnome/wayland and KDE/xorg with the same results on both the NUC and DH77DF.

Any ideas? I don't think this is what the default behavious should be for Automatic Broadcast RGB via Displayport 🙂

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello @Forester

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

 

It is worth mentioning that we usually support one issue per thread and per product. Due to this fact and also since the Intel® Desktop Board DH77DF, Intel® Core™ i5-3470S Processor and its graphics Intel® HD Graphics 2500 have been discontinued (all of them), Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for them.

Perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to help so we recommend creating a separate thread for peer-to-peer support. You may also find the Discontinued Products website helpful to address your request:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/discontinued-products.html

 

Having said that, we will focus on the Intel® NUC. Not all Intel® NUCs have been validated and tested to work with Linux operating systems. You can find the list of validated NUCs for Linux in the following link:

Intel® NUCs not included in the previous website as tested or validated with Linux may work or may not work properly.

 

Since the Intel® NUC works fine under Windows*, this could be an issue related to the Linux operating system (OS). We recommend checking this further with the Linux OS vendor or their forum* (e.g: https://www.fedoraforum.org/), install the latest kernel, and use their distribution resources for driver downloads and support.

 

However, in order to take a look into this behavior, could you please provide the following information from your NUC:

 

1- Exact Intel® NUC model. You may check on the label on the bottom of the chassis. Refer to "Product Code" and "Regulatory Model".

2- Intel® System Support Utility for the Linux* Operating System >> https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26735/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-the-Linux-Operating...

3- Log >> /var/log/dmesg (You can also view the content of this file using the $ dmesg -c)

4- Log >> /var/log/kern.log

5- Are you using a straight-through connection (DisplayPort*-to-DisplayPort) with a single cable?

 

Best regards,

Hi, thanks for your reply and apologies for the delay in mine 🙂

The NUC is a NUC8i5BEH.

Sadly it  hasn't been validated for use on Linux...but then only NUC7's seem to have been...and on Ubuntu/libreelec/clear only...

So moving on 🙂

The cable I'm using is a USB-C to Displayport cable. It's the same behaviour when using a generic "8K capable" cable or an AmazonBasics uni-directional cable. (NUC8i5BEH only has HDMI or alt-mode DP from USB-C for outputs. I'm also not using Thunderbolt.)

Please find the requested files. I ran SSU on KDE (xorg) and Gnome (wayland) but I can't see much in there different.

Thanks
