I needed a 65" 4k tv for other reasons, but I do some video editing, so looking to get most accurate image for editing.
Just updated the old 2008 MacPro with a mac flashed 980ti, and picked up a TCL 65S405 4k tv. Mac is running most updated possible OS for it which is 10.11.6.
Since it's on a mac, though, I don't have Nvidia control panel, and system options gives only 30hz or 24hz output options, and image is way too small (underscanned?) The card has 3 DisplayPorts, and 1 HDMI 2.0 port, and Tv's docs say all of it's 3 HDMI inputs are 2.0 as well, so I'm not seeing anything incapable of 60hz. Fairly sturdy thick looking 6 foot HDMI cable, though I can't speak for it's particular rating.
Image is set at correct UHD resolution, but shrunk and severely letterboxed several inches or more on all sides. Do I need SwitchResX to force overscan and dial in, or is there some way to just get correct pixel mapping without shrinking and then enlarging it?

Just ordered a new cable. Reviews seemed to agree that the Certified Premium High Speed cable from Monoprice (despite being dirt cheap) succeeds at 4k 60hz 4:4:4 where others fail. It's 28AWG, but reviews (and specs) all seemed worse for the only thicker copper I could find. Anyway, if that's an issue, it should be eliminated soon, and I'm only running 6 feet.


But... assuming it's NOT just a cable issue, generally speaking, how are Mac Nvidia card users dialing in their settings? Is this just a case of needing 3rd party software since we don't have Nvidia's control panel? If so, SwitchResX? Something else?


4k 60 hz aside, I'm not even getting proper 4k 30 hz at the moment due to the scaling issue, but I have no controls for it.
