Using a 3440 x 1440 wide screen monitor

I have an ultra widescreen 3440 x 1440 monitor. Is there any way I can get Kodi/Vero 4K working on that?

If you connect it, Vero 4K should pass a compatible signal immediately.
It might take a bit of work to get a native resolution, but it can be done

An EDID dump from Vero 4K will help (with full logs)


FYI I couldn’t get a signal displayed on my ultrawide PC monitor via HDMI when I first got my Vero 4k to set it up. Tried a number of times and even different cables but nothing worked. Had to hook it up to my 4k TV to be able to get a picture.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Here is the log, I hope it is the correct one:

Your TV is advertising support for 1080p50Hz and 1080p60Hz
Does that work out of the box?

I’d stick with this resolution; as the content you will likely be playing will be 1080p.

There is still ongoing work re. supporting custom video modes. I will make a note of this mode requested.

It is a LG 34UC98-W monitor (3440 x 1440 @ 60 Hz), and I get the resolution when using 1) an old HP laptop running Linux mint over HDMI and 2) Another newer HP laptop running windows 10 over DisplayPort .

One time I booted the Vero I think I got the OSMC logo in full screen but it reverted to the 1080p once the skin came up?

I did a workaround and did video calibration for the screen/skin size. Works when playing videos which are 21:9. Problem is of course that it is “only” 1080p. Would be great with support for the full format.

Could there be a cable issue since the resolution is not supported automatically? I dont think I can update the monitor firmware.

Hi @jesperstig

Vero 4K isn’t aware of 3440x1440 yet, so it is falling back to 1080p.

I’d need your raw EDID for this, which can be found with this command:

osmc@osmc:~$ cat /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/rawedid 

I won’t be able to add support right away, but support for other resolutions is ongoing.


Hi @sam_nazarko

Thanks a lot. Here is the EDID:


I understand you won’t be able to fix it immediately, but grateful for support whenever possible.


Thanks. This has now been added to the list.

Hi, my Lenovo L24q-10 should be able to display 2560*1440 but lists 1080p as the highest available resolution. Maybe this resolution can also be added to the list?

Here a dump of the edid data:



Hi @sam_nazarko

Thanks for the great recent update to OSMC. I realize that my screen support request might not be on top of your list of things to do. But would you have an indication of when you are going to include it? Or will you post it in this thread, so I don’t need to check changelog for every update.

Best wishes


Unfortunately I don’t have a timeframe for this yet.

It should be noted that when support is added (and it will be); we will still switch to 1080p for video playback if Adjust Refresh Rate is enabled, as this will provide the best experience.
