I recently purchased a Blu-ray drive to go in my PC. Both hardware and software was installed successfully.
I have a dual-monitor setup, one of which is a TV. Currently a DVI connector on my graphics card goes through a DVI to VGA adapter which plugs into a VGA on the TV. This works and my computer detects a 1080p TV correctly.
My main monitor is plugged in using the only HDMI connector on my graphics card.
When I play a blu-ray it will appear on my main monitor correctly. If I drag the window to my TV, a message pops up stating that the video can not be played and that I need a DVI or HDMI connection.
Already I'm a bit lost on the technicalities, in my mind if the TV can receive a 1080p picture through VGA I see no reason why kicking the signal out from a blu-ray should make any difference. Regardless, I am now after a solution.
I can't use the DVI to my monitor as it's a 3D monitor and must use the HDMI connection. So, I found this DVI to HDMI adapter. Would something as simple as this work? As I don't really understand why VGA doesn't work I can't see how this would make any difference, to me they are all digital signals it's just the shape of the connector, or is that not the case?
