    Hi All,
    I just bought a Mac Pro 2013. I am using a Vizio 50" 4k TV for a display. There is one port on the TV that is labeled HDMI 60HZ. So I'm assuming the TV will take 60HZ.

    I have bought different HDMI cables and I did purchase an ACTIVE mini display port to HDMI adaptor from monoprice.
    I thought the key to getting 60hz over HDMI was making sure the adaptor was ACTIVE.

    Well...with the adaptor and a "high speed" HDMI cable, I still do not get the 60HZ as an option in the Display drop down box.

    Can anyone suggest a way to get 60hz on a 4k TV?

    The adapter needs to be active, but not every active adapter is able to output HDMI 2.0.

    You'll need an adapter that specifically states DP1.2 & HDMI2.0 support, such as the Club3D adapter often recommended here.
