Hello TKein, thanks for sharing this information with us. I would to inform you that Intel recommends using direct cables, no adapters because the usage of adapters may impose restriction while getting screen detected.
However, we have received comments from customers saying that they were able to have video when using a DVI to HDMI cable.
The following link is an FAQ regarding graphics. http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-033418.htm?wapkw=033418
My recommendation at this point will be to test another cable, may be a better quality cable.
Thank you for the reply.
Interesting...I wonder what the deal behind screen detection problems is while using an adapter. Judging by common sense, it would appear that as the pin carrying hot plug signal is - supposedly - correctly connected through the adapter there should be no detection issues.
Oh well, I'm going to have to do further troubleshooting to pinpoint the problem source in my system. I'll _try_ to remember to report back.
