I am new to the forum, but hope someone has an advice.
I wanted to use the DP-DVI cable for my old 19" Samsung monitor (1440x900 res, DVI and VGA inputs) and HDMI for my old TV (analog, CRT old display via HDMI-component video cable).
Here is my problem.
1. HDMI to DVI cable works on my Samsung monitor, no issues. 2. DP to DVI or DP to VGA does not work with the Samsung monitor. No input signal detected at all. (Not even flickering - nothing). 3. HDMI to component video cable does not work with the TV (no input detected) at all.
Not sure what the issue is. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. I am especially enterested in why I do not have any signal output through the DP using either DVI or DVI cables (I think they are passive, not active adapters)
