Help HTPC Display Frequency

I have an HTPC with the following setup:

- OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
- Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz,
- Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB
- GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
- Display Panasonic TX-58DX902B 58 Inch 4K HDR Ultra HD (https://www.panasonic.com/uk/support...-58dx902b.html )
- A/V Receiver Anthem MRX 720 (https://www.anthemav.com/products-cu.../page=overview )

Until recently I was running the recommended setup in windows as the HTPC was utilized for Audio and video purposes. However, I'm starting to run games on my HTPC and thus trying to figure best setup. I went to Panasonic website and it stated that this particular display has a frequency of 30Hz, but I'm not completely sure especially that the display is running through the AVR

Please note some of the relevant A/V specs:

- 4K Pass-Through with fast HDMI switching
- HDCP 2.2
- High Dynamic Range (HDR)
- Dolby Vision™ Compatible
- Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG)
- BT.2020 Color Gamut
- On-Screen Display with 4K 50/60
- 4K 50/60 Switching

Nonetheless, on Windows, the recommended resolution is 3840x 2160. However, on both Windows and Nvidia Panel, there are drop menus to alter the frequency up to 60 and the resolution up to 4096x2160.

I'm really confused about what the proper setting should be in windows and would appreciate your help on this matter

Thanx

Your tv.s manual states 4k 50 or 60hz. Insure you have an hdmi certified high speed cable for connections to both your tv and receiver to gpu. I do not own the tv but some have an option for "expanded color/hdr" that you may have toggle on for that specific hdmi input on your tv. The same may hold true for your receiver. As far as 38 by 21 resolution, this is correct 16 by 9 versus I think 16 by 10 for 4096. Sorry I couldn't help more. I own different tv, receiver and 1080ti gpu.

It states in your manual 4k @ 50 or 60hz. If the tv supports hdr it should support 4k 60hz . My oldest hdr tv(2016) supports 4k 60hz

are you asking or stating?

4096x2160 is not the resolution you want. It's only included for compatibility and it probably results in letterboxed image. You should probably use 3840 x 2160 @ 60hz for games and 384 x 2160 @ 23.976 for video. I assume you're using madVR for video.

Video: JVC RS4500 135" ST130 G4 screen in batcave, htpc nvidia 1080ti madVR.
Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, Infinite Baffle Subs 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 2x12 fi audio mounted in main chair firing into back.
