    [SOLVED] UHD / 4K support from NUC using Mini Display Port (mini DP)


    Over a year later, trying again to fix this problem again I stumbled across this post--> [NUC5i5MYHE don't recognize automatically my LG ... |Intel Communities] and the user "Whamsday" was correct. Full credit to them.


    In summary, the NUC must have "legacy boot support" disabled.

    This required a reinstall because my extant SSD was not seen by the UEFI boot.

    1. Disable legacy boot support, confirm UEFI boot support is enabled
    2. Reinstall from libreelec USB stick
    3. boot, using DP, 4K resolutions are now available (23.98/24/25/29.x/30),
    4. finally, yay (without having to boot with one DP to HDMI dongle (belkin from the apple store FYI), then hotswap to another which oddly seemed to enable 4k, but not on a cold boot)!
    5. Now my photos on slideshow look awesome in 4K 8)

    after swapping to a straight HDMI cable it works. no need to manually code. somehow LE didnt like my mini DP - HDMI pup cable, while OE had no problems with it.


    still have major lag issues though (also on OE). Would love to make this work, but thinking my NUC is underpowered.


    I have this same problem, Intel NUC i5, Haswell. OE and LE 7 worked well with the mini display port DP1 in 4k/ 2160p; in fact, if I used HDMI, the resolution was selectable, but the screen would flash off at about 1Hz in 2160p/30. In 4K it was fine at any refresh rate. And, for the record, both my NUC i3 and i5 used to play 4k content at full rate, with no stutter/issues at all.


    Unfortunately the LE8 (beta) does not see the DP1 port resolutions at 4K - i thought it might have been because I was loading the new OE image into "Updates" and something in my old config was stopping it; so over the Christmas break I wiped the install and loaded a fresh copy. Unfortunately this made no difference. So I'm back to 2k.


    I use 4K because my screensaver is the picture slideshow and our photos are well above 4K so the higher resolution of 4K (over 2K) is very noticeable; not to mention photos look great in large (tv) size in high resolution compared to viewing on a small monitor.


    I am not near my NUCs at the moment, but I can dump an xrandr when connected to HDMI1, and DP1 tonight if that helps.
