Dell U2311H Display Port Issue!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi guys and gals,

Quick question that someone must know. I have the above monitor and a display port to HDMI from dell as well. I am trying to run my xbox 360 through this but it doesn't seem to be working. Nor does it work from my machine either.

Is there something I'm doing it wrong it just puts the monitor to power save mode. help would be fantastic.

I'm not sure what type of connection you are using for your machine to the Dell. If its a DVI cable it must be a dual link dvi. HDMI should just work, as should a plain displayport

I Tried to do this with my monitor also. Never seemed to work for my Xbox or PS3. For some reason the converted DP port to HDMI wont display at all.

I just ended up playing on my TV, Also picked up an ASUS 23 inch for about 150.

You might need an Active Displayport adapter which can be pricey. They will require USB power source. I know AMD GPUs require them for DP converters.

Why arent you just using HDMI? The Dell has an HDMI input, while the xbox has an HDMI output. Why use a converter cable?

The monitor only has VGA,DVI, and DP.

We have them as our standard monitor at work that's how i know.

Ah ok, I was presuming that because my U2711 has a HDMI that so does the U2311. In that case, the OP could use a HDMI to DVI cable for the xbox. No signal conversion is needed from HDMI to DVI, so its probably cheaper than a Displayport adapter.
