Issues with GTX 660 Ti via HDMI

Hey folks,

Wonder if anyone can help me out with an issue I'm having. I just put together a new PC (with help of a more tech-savvy friend) and when trying to connect my display to my video card via HDMI, I'm presented with a flickering black screen that shows the desktop for a second or two then goes black (rinse/repeat). I've currently got the display working via it's DVI output but I want to run an HDMI connection primarily.
The display I'd like to connect is a Sony PS3 3D Display via HDMI. For the record, the HDMI connection had the same issue when connected to a 42" Samsung LCD HDTV.

Thanks!

I would stick with DVI for 3D, it doesnt limit the FPS, where as an HDMI can and most likely will limit your FPS... a buddy of mine did that, his FPS never went above 24 with HDMI but hit 60+ with DVI..... but that was with Radeon not Nvidia.

Most TVs don't got DVI connections....

and it seems that either:
the cable is faulty
the card is faulty

try a different cable... it should cost like $3 for a 5 foot cable...

Thanks for the replies. I'm happy to stick with DVI, though I'd need an adapter, also fine. Still, I'm curious as to what's going on. I tried a different cable, same problem.

Could be drivers, make sure you have the most up to date drivers. Also it could just be the HDMI port, could be defective. Did you over clock the card? If so maybe the HDMI cable can't handle it especially if you have a "lesser" quality cable. I would check the port and make sure it isnt damaged or have anything jammed in there, or an excessive amount of dust, same with the cable.

No overclocking, and tried different cables. I also picked up a DVI to HDMI cable today and it's producing the same issue... any ideas? Possible HDCP issues? Any solutions?

are you connecting 2 displays at the same time.if that is what you do then you need to try the Windows+p option before connecting the the second display and select the necessary option. Try selecting the duplicate option first.

I tried just one display initially, the 40" Samsung HDTV and it's producing the black screen flicker via HDMI or DVI to HDMI. Now I've got the Samsung display connected via DVI - VGA which is stable and trying to trouble shoot the PS3 display while it is connected via DVI - HDMI. I currently have them both set to duplicate.

them I am afraid the fault might be with your hdmi cable as well.
try to manage another one from any friend of yours and check that our,just to be sure.

Oh I've swapped out many different cables. Two different DVI to HDMI sets as well as a few different straight HDMI to HDMI...

Sorry, it's ASUS. Specifically the DC20-2GD5.

I have not found such a problem in the asus forum though.
I would advice you to contact asus customer support for a fool proof solution.

Just had a breakthrough (of sorts). I just deleted all video drivers and my ps3 display is now functioning at 1920x1080 via HDMI... it seems like it's using the onboard as I have no performance when loading a game or anything but it's more than I have gotten before...

What should I do now?

Got the exat same video card... having the exact same issues. HDMI is dead in my ASUS.

i guess its asus/nvidia related... with my previous ASUS boards, i always used ATI/amd and never had an issue.

send it back for an RMA
