Camera preview on i.MX8MQ EVK

We are running L4.14.78 GA BSP on NXP i.MX8M EVK board.

The SD card image was downloaded from 


Board revision is SCH 29615 REV B3.

We have NXP MX8_DSI_OLED1 display and NXP MINISASTOCSI camera connected to the board as described in application notes: 

The DTB file used is fsl-imx8mq-evk-dcss-rm67191-b3.dtb


When running camera capture and preview on the connected MIPI display by executing the following commands:

   gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! video/x-raw,width=640,hight=480  ! fpsdisplaysink
   gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! video/x-raw,width=720,height=480  ! fpsdisplaysink
   gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! video/x-raw,width=1280,height=720 ! fpsdisplaysink


we get the correct picture.


However when using higher resolutions
   gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! video/x-raw,width=1920,height=1080 ! fpsdisplaysink
   gst-launch-1.0 v4l2src device=/dev/video0 ! video/x-raw,width=2592,height=1944 ! fpsdisplaysink


the picture quality worsens, it becomes visibly greener with some parallel lines running across the image.


The problem does not occur when previewing on HDMI display. It also does not occur in previous GA BSP release, L4.9.51

We can also reproduce the problem on our own i.MX8MQ boards.


Please help us fixing the problem.
