    My SP4 is up to date as is my firmware on my MS Wireless Display Adapter, Version 2. I'm using the extend display option.

    While using the MS Wireless Display Adapter, I connect to my second display and it only allows for 30Hz in the driver menu. There is no option to change it to 60Hz. In this case, the second monitor is a TV.

    If I connect directly with a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI on the TV - I have the option to choose 60Hz. Everything is fine. If I connect with the Wireless Display Adapter - I'm capped at 30Hz - the 60Hz simply isn't an option

    Any suggestions?

    Impatient, I posted the same question on Reddit. I was told it is limited to 30Hz at 1080p and there's nothing I can do about it except lower the res. I guess I mistakenly thought it was 60Hz in the past - and that a recent firmware update capped it. I guess I was wrong and it is what it is.

    Yup, pretty much. You can get 60Hz on 720p. But that's about it. And it still chops at 720p if you are far enough away.

    Such a neat adapter concept but poor hardware overall.

    How do you reach that conclusion? Mine works just fine for streaming media.
