mixed resolution Eyefinity broken in windows 10

My setup uses 2 1600x1200 Panels with a 1920x1200 panel in the center. Under Windows 8.1, this worked fine. Under Windows 10, I cannon select a suitable resolution for either of the side panels (in Windows or the CCC). The available resolutions aren't even 4:3, they are all 16:9 resolutions.

 

If I could manually set my eyefinity to display 5120x1200 @60Hz, I would probably be fine, but I can't. I have to keep trying to use tools which don't work because the additional monitors aren't correctly picked up. If I try the 2 1600x1200 panels on their own, they work. It only seems to become a problem when you try to output onto panels with different resolutions.

 

I got so tired of trying to find an answer that I decided to roll back to Windows 8.1, but for some reason my backup files are missing so I really need to find a solution to this

 

I have a few friends who use a TV monitor as a second screen and they are all having a similar problem in that they can only use the main monitor, and additional panels will not work if they operate at a different resolution

 

Any feedback would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,
