DisplayPort to LCD TV Tags: Nvidia TV Connection DVI Graphics Last response: November 7, 2010 9:15 PM in Graphics & Displays Share konartist November 5, 2010 6:06:45 PM Hi, I'm hoping to find some help. I currently have a Thinkcentre D20 with a NVIDIA Quadro FX 380 16-core (256MB, DVI + DP) video card. My goal: Connect 2 screens. One from the DVI to a VGA monitor(currently works) and second connection from DP to LCD TV via hdmi. Items on hand: 1x Startech DisplayPort to DVI Video Converter 1x Startech HDMI to DVI Digital Video Cable Problem: The DisplayPort works when i connect it to a VGA convertor and to a monitor. If i try to use a DisplayPort -> DVI converter and then connect a HDMI-DVID cable to the tv, i get no signal. This problem might be caused that the DP cable is a DP++ where the port i think is only a DisplayPort. Can someone help me out what DP->DVI adapter i need, and what is the difference between the Active DP adapter and passive? Would i require an Active DP Adapter in this case? Any help will be appreciated More about : displayport lcd konartist November 7, 2010 9:15:24 PM Any one have any ideas on the setup? Any help will be appreciated. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
