Trouble using Xbox One on DisplayPort monitor

This is my monitor

https://www.asus.com/uk/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG_SWIFT_PG278Q/

I have been trying to connect my Xbox One to it - but since the monitor only has 1 DP port and the xbox has a HDMI port, I had to get an active HDMI to DP adapter:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0752D33PJ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

After connecting the Xbox and monitor with the adapter and using the adapter's usb cord to power it, the Xbox was only outputting a 640 x 480 resolution, occupying around one twelfth of the screen.

First I tried changing the resolution in the xbox settings - to 1080p or 720p - but changing the resolution made a message pop up on the monitor saying OUT OF RANGE.

I tried using a different DP cable, power cyclling the xbox and the monitor, messing around in the monitor's settings,. but nothing changed.

I need help in making the Xbox output a 1080p image.

Any help is appreciated.

Answer
Sort of a dead end IMO.

HDMI means HDCP and such convertors may have to violate a law to remove the HDCP.

Be sure to google your issue, either folk have solved it or are very upset.

https://www.google.com/search?q=xbox+to+displayport finds this to be true and upsetting.

Your link notes that you have to use another USB power supply, can't use the XBox source for USB power. Did you try that?

Still nothing...

I did try an iPhone charger and an Android charger - both 1A and 5V, as recommended by the supplier.

It's a product with problems.

Or the display not being 60Hz is a factor. Remember, these don't always work. Always try them with full return privileges.

Need to lower refresh rate to 60hz for 720p-1080p
"An incredible 144Hz refresh rate and a rapid response time of 1ms eliminate lag and motion blur, while an exclusive Turbo key allows you to select refresh rates of 60Hz, 120Hz or 144Hz with just one press. I/O Ports Signal Input : DisplayPort 1.2
USB Port(s) : 3.0x2"

Thanks for that.

I haven't read much success with over 60Hz out of consoles. I think between the USB power source change and this, they have a chance to fix it. If not, back it goes.

Done that

The refresh rate automatically changed from 144hz to 60hz, since the xbox supports a maximum of 1080p 60hz

Answer
Freesync not gsync

Not sure if I'm right but your monitor you listed only supports gsync and not freesync. If you want one that has freesync I suggest the Asus mg248q
