I bought a HDMI to DVI-D cable today and it doesn't work on one tested monitor, but works on another. It's a High Speed HDMI cable with Ethernet.
I know there are multiple HDMI standards, perhaps also multiple DVI standards, and so I'm wondering what might be causing the problem. Could this be a HDMI/DVI version incompatibility between my laptop (providing the HDMI signal) and the monitor (receiving DVI-D signal)? Is there any way for me to debug it?
My video card is a Nvidia GeForce GT 630M, the monitor the cable does NOT work on is a Gateway LP2207, and the monitor the cable DOES work on is a Dell U2711. The Dell is a newer monitor.
All the best.
