how to keep desktop resolution on htpc?

hi, i connected my HTPC running beowulf to a sharp 4K tv and set the desktop resolution at 1920x1080.

However, sometimes when i open the TV, the desktop seems to automatically adjust to 4k (3840 x 2160), when i reverted back to 1080p resoluton, it will change again to 4k after a while, and the fonts will become too small to read.

how to keep the desktop at 1080p?

Check the settings on the TV itself:  Refresh rates, timers, and ALL general settings first.  See if they match refresh rates under devuan display settings.

I'm still looking for a solution.

both HTPC and TV are set to 60HZ refresh rate, but HTPC automatically sets to 4k after some period of idle time.
