External Monitor resolution (would like 3840x2160)
Hi all,

I've been doing searching on this forum, and I haven't found many good answers.  One or two threads closed, some others not really answering.  Here's my question:

PineBook Pro -> USB C adapter -> HDMI -> LG 43Un700-B

Resolution at 1920x1080 is supported on the external LG monitor

Problem: The monitor itself frequently suggests that I switch to 3840x2160

Question: Is this theoretically possible with PBP?

Datum: When I attempt this, I get a KDE error "Outputs could not be saved due to error"

USB C to HDMI adapter:

CableCreation 5-in-1 USB C Adapter with 4K HDMI
