5700 XT VSR does not work on HDMI/TV

Question asked by rikersix on Nov 5, 2019

I bought a Sapphire Pulse 5700 XT about a month ago. I have never gotten VSR working on my TV (HDMI, 1080p, 60hz). I can enable the VSR toggle in the Radeon Settings but neither Windows nor any video game show resolutions higher than native. It is as if the toggle does nothing.

 

What DOES work:

If I set windows to only use my second display, a monitor (Displayport, 1080p, 60hz), VSR works.

 

What DOES NOT work:

If I set Windows to extend my desktop, like I normally do, with my TV(HDMI) and monitor(Displayport).

If I set Windows to only use my TV(HDMI).

To be clear, I can always enable the VSR toggle on either display, but no game, nor windows, shows higher than native resolutions when trying to use my TV, extended or solely.

 

My previous video card, a 980 Ti, could do DSR just fine with my TV, extended or not, so it shouldn't be an issue.

 

Any workarounds or am I stuck until a driver fixes this?

 

Monitor showing higher resolutions:

Asus Monitor showing additional resolutions

 

TV not showing higher resolutions even with VSR toggled on:

Panasonic TV not showing higher resolutions
