HDMI, DP, and VGA are media connections, where USB is a data connection. USB doesn't transfer actual video/audio signals, just the data that they can be produced from. Your dock has a USB video adapter in it that actually processes the data coming in via USB into video, mostly via software, using the computer's CPU to process (most of) the data. The ...

The DisplayPort-HDMI connection is indeed the cause of the problem. The graphics card supports only two TMDS (DVI/HDMI) connections. Because your cable doesn’t have an activate converter but is made for DP++ (Dual-mode DisplayPort), it requires the card to output HDMI on its DisplayPort connector. So you either need a DisplayPort-capable display or an ...

2560x1600 @ 35Hz works because it's slow enough for single link DVI (pixel clock is less than 165 MHz). Anything faster for DVI such as 2560x1600 @ 60Hz requires dual link DVI which these HDMI adapters do not support. HDMI is single link but allows for pixel clocks up to 340 MHz (HDMI 1.3 or greater). So, I'm not gaming or anything, so didn't care for 60Hz ...

The easiest way to do this is use VLC to capture the screen and then send out a stream to the internet. Then, you can use vlc on other machines to connect to the stream. More documentation: https://software.grok.lsu.edu/Article.aspx?articleid=14625

Open the Desktop, find the volume icon on the Taskbar. Right-click on Volume button and select the Playback devices. In the list, find the one for your HDMI Output. If it isn't there you probably need to update the drivers for the graphic card hosting the HDMI port. Right-click the HDMI Output device for your TV connection and select "Test". You should hear ...

VGA is analog port using basically 3 signals. When signal is converted between HDMI, DVI and VGA the same 4 contacts are used (see picture): At the same time these signal are missing in Mini DP pure connector. http://pinouts.ru/Video/mini_displayport.shtml So, additional circuit is required inside the adapter to convert signal levels from DP to VGA. Like ...

The resolution provided by a graphics adapter is the sum of the total resolution of all the displays used. You can change those settings by going on the Start button (bottom-left of the screen), Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Personalization, and then Display Settings. You then go to the Monitor tab from which you can select the ...

OK. I found the solution to the problem. The problem was that Mini Display Port(Thunderbolt) HAS TO HAVE a active adapter connected to be able to successfully convert signals from DP to HDMI. As soon I replaced a regular converter with an Active Converter which I bought from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Mini-DisplayPort-Active-Adapter/dp/...

According to the HDMI 1.3a spec there is a power pin that provides 5V/50mA, but it specifies that the power flows from the PC to the display. However, MHL is a standard for connecting smartphones and mobile-tablets to displays, and while I couldn't find the spec, according to the wikipedia article it allows power to flow from the display to the device, ...

Found a free (GPL) alternate and thought I would throw it out there for anyone else stumbling in from google... before anyone throws away $20 to CheVolume or installs their adware-containing trial software (at least according to my AV scan on version 0.5.0.0, downloaded directly from their site). found something called Audio Router on reddit / github / ...

Digital audio & video have a latency/delay. If using hdmi as video output, you should also route the audio through the hdmi, and for sure not use the sound card (or motherboard) analog output. Otherwise you lose the sync between audio & video. To use different equipment for sound playback than the hdmi receiving device, you have to route the sound ...
