    You will need to use display port or hdmi to connect your dock to the monitor.
    And that's most probably mean losing freesync and possibly hdr and the 120hz refresh rate but I guess that would work.

    Hi

    So usb C from the MBP to the dock. Display port from the dock to the monitor. I though using the DP still gave you 120Hz rate and it was only an issue if you used HDMI?

    Thanks

    Thats true but it will depends on how the graphic card in the dock decodes the thunderbolt signal and pass it to the display port. Theoretically it should work but that might depend on the dock components.

    I have the 1080p version of this screen and I have notice a dead pixel in the last week or so(bought it in may) and I have tried rubbing it but it wont come to life. Its quite odd as I can only see it on dark colours,, light colours I cant see it at all. The dead pixel is red, so I would thought it would stick out like a sore thumb on light colours.

    So today I decided to contact the site I bought it from and to my amazement they refunded me £100 and they said if I get anymore dead pixels between now and May, they will sort it.. How good is that.

    I have just set mine up and I can see there is talk of a firmware update. Does anyone know where to check what firmware it has at the moment?

    Menu > Information > Current Version . Mine says m-RG949CCAA-1001.5

    Looks like there is a 1004 firmware floating about but I can't find the download, also I'm not messing with mine as it seems fine :)

    Looks to download an .exe which isn't really handy on a Mac

    What difference have you noticed? Is this firmware designed to resolve anything ?
