MSI RX 560 4GB HDMI to Philips TV 1366x768 GREENed screen!!!
Resolution that activated and available is 1360x768.

hdmi to VGA converting works well with same TV.

Something about bit-depth.

Correct resolution 1366x768 is NEEDED!
Color problem fix is NEEDED!

And how to fix that annoying screen-tearing?!

Please help!!

Have you tried this for the screen tearing on amdgpu:

Why tearing happens at the first place anyway?
With Nvidia 1050 there is no tearing.

From inxi -F it is clear that DRI = yes.
video surface update always must be v-synced.
According to what I know, there must be overlay HW accel caps, that is multibuffered and always synced.

And I found something about HDMI handshake failure, which causes ugly color.
On ms windows HDMI connection works fine, with to pixel precision.
Is there way to disable/bypass handshake on linux?
