    DPI scaling on the second screen?


    Windows 10 Anniversary... I can go to 150% scaling in PRIMARY and MIRROR but when I use only the secondary screen (it's a TV) the DPI scaling is disabled... why?

    Are you connected to the HDMI/DVI port on the TV or a standard HDMI port ?

    My guess is Windows thinks it is a TV (HDCP) and you are going to watch TV , so doesn't allow scaling

    On the HDMI/DVI (PC Port) it should I think ?

    Hi,

    I have a laptop with HDMI OUTPUT.
    I have an HDMI patch from laptop HDMI output to TV HDMI in.

    In the primary monitor I can scale DPI as I want (100%, 125%, 150%, and so).
    In the secondary monitor (TV HD HDMI) I cannot scale, I have to remain to 100%.

    Why this?

    PS: I check about the DVI/HDMI question, my PC output is simply HDMI while the TV is DVI/HDMI input. I can swear that on Windows 7 and even on Windows 10 (but not the AU) I was able to scale DPI on the secondary. But I had another graphic chipset there (AMD).
