I bought [Iiyama XB2783HSU-B1DP](http://www.iiyama.com/gb_en/products/prolite-xb2783hsu-b1dp/) monitor. However I'm not able to connect my MacBook Pro 2015 from HDMI with [DisplayPort to HDMI](https://www.alza.co.uk/roline-displayport-hdmi-connection-shielded-2-m-d504901.htm?catid=18848641) cable. From monitor menu I am able to select DisplayPort, but monitor will fail to receive any signal from laptop. I tried to connect monitor with Asus laptop, DisplayPort no signal again, while connection through VGA port works fine. Any advice?

I am trying to connect my laptop to my television by HDMI, i've done it before and it worked. But now I'm having some problems:: When I connect the HDMI cable to my laptop, my laptop's screen goes black, as if it didn't receive any image signal (neither the tv). I disconnect the HDMI cable, and my laptop's screen stays in black, I have to keep pressed the ON/OFF button to turn it off. I've tried to update my drivers, but with no result. Also I have de Uniblue Driver Scanner, but it doesn't detect me any driver update. I …

Hi, all. I'm having trouble getting audio over a DVI-to-HDMI connection out of my video card. The video card supports audio over DVI by way of a 2-pin cable connecting the S/PDIF header on the motherboard to the video card. The motherboard is an Asus P5N7A-VM. The video card is a BFG Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT. I have disabled the onboard video card. Yes, I know the motherboard has and HDMI out, but I've had other issues with that and I'd prefer to get the video card working the way I would like. I have connected the 2-pin cable that …

So the problem with this monitor is that: 1) Not much information on it on the web - makes me suspicious 2) Not a very attractive bezel 3) No HDMI (Not a major problem) 4) I don't know if it's the best for it's price 5) NO HOTKEYS !

I just built an HTPC using the Asus AT3IONT-I motherboard which has onboard CPU and GPU. The board is supposed to be HDMI ready, but I am getting no sound through HDMI to my TV. I know the HDMI cable and my TV settings are fine, because I can get sound using my laptop perfectly fine. All drivers are up to date, and I even flashed the BIOS. I have been into the audio settings in control panel and HDMI is set to default. When I run 'test' in audio device applet, the green bar moves up and down, which …

I recently bought a 3DTV (today, in fact. Just waiting for it to arrive early next week) and the only thing I need is an HDMI cable which can carry a 3D signal since my current one is only v1.3 which I believe cannot carry a 3D signal. I know that in terms of picture quality, there is little to no difference between the top of the range and bottom of the range so the main thing I'm looking for is the durability. The reason why I didn't buy an HDMI cable with the TV is because the cheapest one …

So I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC that I use as a Media Center. It has an ATI video card with HDMI out that I use for both video and audio output. An HDMI cable runs from the PC to a Pioneer Elite A/V receiver and then out to my speakers and a Mitsubishi 1080p projector. The resolution is 1920x1080 and it looks great. The problem is that sometimes the audio decides to stop working and I get audio decoder errors in media center mode. When I exit media center and look in my Windows audio devices the …

I'm about to [URL="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/whats-included-in-windows-7-service-pack-1-sp1"]install SP1 for Windows 7[/URL], it seems like it includes a lot of already-installed improvements but it also promises to include "improvements to features and services in Windows 7, such as improved reliability when connecting to HDMI audio devices, printing using the XPS Viewer, and restoring previous folders in Windows Explorer after restarting." So here we go... and by the way I can definitely use the improved reliability when connecting to HDMI audio devices on my Media Center at home too.

[ATTACH=RIGHT]18413[/ATTACH]Are all [URL="http://www.hdmi.org/learningcenter/faq.aspx"]HDMI[/URL] cables created equal? Without lab equipment it is difficult to tell the difference between HDMI [or any cables] at short lengths [under 6 feet]. But signals traveling greater distances do degrade and that is a fact. The longer the wire, the greater the resistance and weaker the signal or current on the receiving end. Here is a round-up comparison of a handful of HDMI cables, designed to provide a 1080p picture at the end of a 50 foot run. This is not a very complex and technical review, just a simple test to show what can be …

I know this is a easy problem to fix normally, but I've had no success yet. I have a Sony Vaio FW with Windows Vista, and a Maxent TV. I've connected the laptop to the tv with an HDMI cable. The image is displayed on the tv with no problem but there is no sound whatsoever. I've gone to the control panel and changed the default sound device to HDMI Device, still no success. I went into "Configure" and pressed on "Test", and it says it failed. I've also noticed that when I play a movie or anything at all …
