U2719DC, Daisy chain causes strange resolution on second?

I've connected my Dell XPS 9560 to my 2 new monitors (U2719DC) using USB C and DP (Daisy chained).
So this is the setup: XPS --> USB C --> Monitor 1 --> DP Out to DP IN --> Monitor 2

This works but the last screen can only have a max resolution of 2048x1080. I've already tried a lot of stuff. I’ve even connected a third U2719DC monitor which fixed my resolution on the second monitor. Problem is that this third monitor isn't mine so I had to disconnect it again.

You advertise Daisy chaining as a feature for this screen but this doesn't even seem to work correctly. My XPS 9370 has the same problem so this problem isn’t specific to one device.

Re: U2719DC, Daisy chain causes strange resolution on second?

I know, but there is no explanation to why this doesn't work?

PC TB3/USB Type-C out port --> U2719DC USB Type-C cable --> #1 U2719DC USB Type-C in port (2560x1440 60Hz)

#1 U2719DC DP out port --> U2719DC DP to DP cable --> #2 U2719DC DP in port (Menu- Display- MST Off) (2048x1080 60Hz)

If you read the specifications of daisy chain, it should be possible to at least connect two 2k screens.
