external displays not working
i connected two external displays to via mini displayport to dual HDMI mst hub adapter. I then have two HDMI to DVI cables running from that to both monitors and am getting nothing except blank screen flickers and a “no signal!” sign. How come it is not working?
I looked further into it, and i read this:
- If you're using more than one video adapter to connect your display (the adapters are "chained" together), try connecting the display using only one adapter if possible. Some video adapters can't be connected together. For example, a mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter can't be connected to a DVI to HDMI adapter.
so doe this mean in my case, i’d need a mini displayport to dual dvi adapter, then two dvi adapters running to my monitors for this to work? Apparently you can’t chain them the way i have it setup with HDMI adapter to HDMI to DVI cable, so it would need to be
DVI adapter ————-> DVI female to DVI male cable ————>monitors. Is this correct?
