Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

hi!

The best resolution I can get working on my 2nd monitor (SONY Bravia KLV-S32A10E) is 720p.

When I switch to 1080i /60 in Windows, the TV screen goes completely nuts.

It was working 100% on my old Graphics Card (GTX1060), and even worked on my Raspberry Pi with Linux and Kodi, but now I have a 5700XT Red Devil and the Adrenaline Drivers just don't seem to get it working.

I tried making a custom resolution, but nothing with 1920x1080 gets accepted, although I already know that the TV can do 1080i /60 from my previous Nvidia card...

Some screenshots attached showing 720p working, and how screwed up 1080i /60 looks...

Please tell me how to get 1080i, I like the card, and don't want to sell it again and buy an RTX3070 instead...

(my 1st monitor runs at 1080p/60 and is an iiyama Blackhawk, but that doesn't really matter)

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

Maybe the solution is, that Win10 doesn't have my SONY TV properly recognized with it's display modes, and the NVIDIA card didn't care about the Windows Display Driver data and instead addressed the TV properly, but the AMD card doesn't do that. I don't know.

I extracted the EDID data from the TV (as listed above) and even made an .inf file and installed that, but it didn't change anything. Still not working in 1080 interlaced mode with the Radeon Card.

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

From what you posted to get 1080i output your Resolution Frequency must be 50 Hz. If it is 60 Hz it will output 720 instead:

CE video identifiers (VICs) - timing/formats supported
    1920 x 1080i at  50Hz - HDTV (16:9, 1:1) [Native]
     720 x  480p at  60Hz - EDTV (16:9, 32:27)
    1280 x  720p at  60Hz - HDTV (16:9, 1:1)
     720 x  576p at  50Hz - EDTV (16:9, 64:45)
    1280 x  720p at  50Hz - HDTV (16:9, 1:1)
    1920 x 1080i at  60Hz - HDTV (16:9, 1:1)
     640 x  480p at  60Hz - Default (4:3, 1:1)
     720 x  480i at  60Hz - Doublescan (16:9, 32:27)
     720 x  576i at  50Hz - Doublescan (16:9, 64:45)
    NB: NTSC refresh rate = (Hz*1000)/1001

Go to Windows Settings - Display and see if your Monitor Frequency is set at 60 Hz instead of 50 Hz:

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

Thank you, I already tried, that, and it looked the same way distorted. also, the EDID says it can do both, 50 or 60Hz, which as I wrote I confirmed myself using a Raspberry Pi with Debian Linux, LibreELEC with Kodi and my own GTX1060 card, which all had zero problems with this old LCD TV.

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

Maybe i need a better "Displaydriver" for the monitor in Windows. I made a monitor.ini from the EDID and installed that, but that was probably not it. When i go to the Hardware Monitor, and try to update drivers from the same ini file, Windows tells me it already has the best (microsofts own) driver for it, and also it needs a monitor.sys file. Anyone know how to make such a file?

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

I have now successfully installed my own monitor.inf driver with the EDIT info from the LCD-TV. (despite that it worked flawlessly with an Nvidia card). and I still can not get 1080i to work with the 5700XT/AMD driver. So it is definitely a bug in the AMD driver... I wrote a bugreport for that, and if I dont get a helpful answer within a week, I will sell this otherwise nice gfx card again RX 5700XT Red Devil. too bad.

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

I am experiencing the same with an older Bravia TV as well. Model KDL-V26XBR1. I am using Linux. I felt compelled to reply to this thread because I can't seem to find anything else about this bug. Intel GPU is able to set to 1080i. I am using an RX 550 now and it is only presenting 1280x720 as the highest resolution.

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

it's an AMD driver bug, all you can do is hope and pray they release a better driver sometime in the Future.

good luck bro. One more thing, you can also write a bug report in the new Adrenaline driver, maybe it will motivate them to fix the issue. I did it also.

Re: Can't get 1080i working on my Sony Bravia (2nd monitor on RX 5700 XT Red Devil)

one more thing... since you are on Linux, maybe you can fix the issue despite the bad drivers. On my Raspberry Pi I used to add some line to config.txt (might have different name/location depending on your linux distro) to get 1080i working on my SONY TV. Here's the 2 links with some info about that.

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/README.md 

https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/video.md 

maybe you can get it to work, would be nice to hear of your results. cheers.
