You can get 1080p from a multi-input Catleap.

HDMI -> Dual Link DVI converters are either non-existent or very, very rare - I have not seen one on the market as of yet. As you surmursed, no cheap "HDMI->DL-DVI" adapters will work. None of the ones I searched up for quickly on ebay or amazon do what you need it to do. PS3 on a single input catleap is a waste of a Catleap - you can't make real use of it anyways.

Thanks, its more for my pc i dont actually own a ps3 the ps3 would be for gf only.
How would i plug it in to use 720?
although i guess it would look very bad :/ might be better off just picking up a cheap 1080 tv and keeping the catleap for the pc.

another question ive got a 7970 at the moment will a catleap work off the dp-dvi connector? or i have to use dual dvi?

thanks for the help smile.gif

However, as of yesterday I've been getting an odd problem. The screen has been "blanking", or going black and then back to normal during normal use. I'm using the included DVI-Dual Link cable and power supply and have not tampered with the stand or bezel.
The problem is exactly like what is seen on these two youtube videos:

and also...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXX66vuOYEU
This is exactly what I'm dealing with. Has anyone experienced anything similar? Is there anything I can do to fix this issue? I really love the monitor but this problem has made it un-usable. I've contacted the seller, but I'm not expecting anything.
I fear that I've flown too close to the sun on the wings of Yamakasi.

I just wanted to follow up on my situation in the hopes of helping out others. I purchased my Q270 Multi from AccessoriesWhole via Amazon. The screen fading / screen blanking problem came up 7 months after purchase. After numerous attempts to contact AW through Amazon with no reply, I finally opted to contact them through their eBay storefront. I received a reply fairly quickly yesterday so that's a feather in their cap. It seemed to be a standard tech-support form email that others have received:

Hi

Sorry for the inconvenience.
Have you removed the paneling to see if there's something blown?
Will you check if the board is defective?
If you take off the back panel of the monitor to see that a MOSFET on the PCB board had burned out like these photos?

Sincerely
- accessorieswhole


I replied as soon as I could with the following:

Hello:

I've checked out the PCB and did not see any obvious signs of burnt MOSFET, capacitors or traces. There was one area that I wasn't sure of and I've circled it with yellow via MS Paint.

I've taken photos of the front and back PCB so you can see first hand what I was looking at. The pictures can be found here:

Thank you for replying. I really appreciate the good customer service. smile.gif I just want this monitor working again. I really like it. Thank you.


If any of you guys could please take a peek at the pictures I'd appreciate it. My untrained eyes may have overlooked a PCB issue. Frankly, I'm surprised to be getting a response from them. I'm cautiously optimistic about this. Hopefully we'll all see some resolution soon.

Best to get a random 1080p tv for the PS3. If you really really insisted on using the PS3, you could probably use a standard HDMI -> DVI converter and set your PS3 to do 720p output.

You could work off a DP-DL-DVI connector... but you won't want to. Use your DL-DVI port. Besides of which, when you say "the" DP-DVI connector, it probably won't do what you want it to do anythings. Use native ports when possible.

Because DisplayPort is more extensible than DL-DVI. There's no consumer video card that can drive more than 2x DL-DVI ports.

Just stick with DisplayPort monitors. That's what I do and I never run into any problems.

ahh didnt realize that, yeh surely running 3 catleaps would be a problem, if sli cards could only run 2 ha.

I just wanted to post an interesting finding that I've had with my defective Q270 Multi.

http://youtu.be/lkyzLwqdd1g

I've sent this along with two other videos to AccessoriesWhole in hopes of at least getting a new main PCB and a new OSD/Menu PCB to see if it corrects the problem. In cross referencing some of the technical issues, I've read that a run of Crossover panels had a similar issue whereby the menu and function PCB was causing issues with the entire function of the monitor. This seems to be a similar issue. If there was a short in the on screen display/ menu PCB it could very well cause issues in the main PCB.

We'll see what unfolds and I'll post my results here in the hopes of furthering our technical knowledge of these awesome monitors.

Please help me out AccessoriesWhole! lol.

Hi Guys,
One of very few 2a models here - (Panel still going strong - deal of my life for 330$ smile.gif Got a bit of a problem - just added second gtx680 to my rig and I'm experiencing huge screen flickering in games when running 100Hz overclock on q270. Looks like cards are asynchronised or something. No problems with 60Hz bumping to 80Hz and I can start to see flickering bump to 100Hz and screen is all over the place. Anyone experienced something like that?
Mobo Asus P67 Sabretooth (latest bios) , (Drivers : newest 314.14 beta) my first "old" gfx is Galaxy gtx680 (no problems with 100Hz single card) my new gtx 680 - MSI twin frozer. They have different stock clocks, I tried to match clocks on both cards but still getting flickering on 100Hz so its not the cause.
Kind of a bummer with sli not working at 100Hz , I'd rather avoid buying overpriced Titan if I can .... and going back to 60Hz after couple of months butter smooth 100Hz is not an option for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
