17:37 19-Mar-2012 Handed over to Customs GBCVTA
Customs retention reason : Invoice missing

anyone have experience with dealing with customs biggrin.gif. I'm cool with paying for it now that I'm busted but I don't want to have to wait over a week for it!

Damn UK customs.

Guys, I hooked up my second monitor, and windows only comes up on that monitor BUT it seems that it's detecting the catleap. But still no picture. I don't know whats wrong! Red light just blinking....ugh

EDIT- Looks like maybe this is what the problem is? Says it's not ''HDCP compatible''. How do I fix this???

All right, I'm starting to get annoyed. I ordered from dream-seller on March 5. It took two messages to get the tracking number on March 13. As of today, EMS tracking still displays a status of Posting/Collection as of March 8. I wouldn't mind as much if he hadn't advertised 3-5 day shipping and given me the run-around on tracking numbers. I messaged him again for more information, so we'll see where this ends up.

Need more info - GPU, how is it connected, did you use the stock cable or did you buy another, have you used your other display's cable and disconnected the first monitor, etc

 

A blinking red light means there is an issue with the connection (I get it when I tweak with refresh rates - monitor goes black).  Try powering off and on.  Also check cables, disconnect first monitor etc.  Get the Catleap up first then try to add the second monitor.

Smells like backorder, though you did order before most of the masses I'd think.

I ordered the less-sold Crossover monitor from dream-seller on the 14th. Flew out of South Korea and eventually on to NYC on the 18th. Arrives tomorrow.

Has to be back order or 1 that fell through the cracks.

Yeah my posts have skipped a couple pages back already but I did give all that.

I tried 2 different GPU's, a gtx 460 2win and an 8800gts 512mb, both of which have dual link DVI connection. I did use the supplied cable. I have tried only booting with the catleap, the second monitor was the next resort effort. Tried unplugging and plugging everything back in multiple times.

And actually, I've tried unplugging the DVI while the PC was running at both the card and on the monitor. Both times it makes the ding sound like being disconnected and reconnected. So the connection is good. Thinking about trying a different DVI cable not sure what else to do.

Bought the Catleap Q270SE from green-sum on 3/12. Received on 3/19. Packaged in a huge box with smaller boxes wedging it into place. No pixels stuck on. No pixels stuck off that I have noticed yet.

Revision 12C, will only go to 66Hz.

Mine also shows that it is not HDCP compatible.

OK thanks for that info. I guess thats not my problem then. What video card are you using?


I've now tried 3 cards, tried my gtx295 still no go.

Oh and I also forgot, it started blinking red before I ever even hooked a DVI cable to it. Just plugged in the power, started blinking. Stays blinking no matter what you do.
