When tested on other computers it works then retrying on mac minis/books etc it just don't work. Can't really help on this one. Only thing I can think of is If your going to be using this on mac minis and laptops etc why did you go with the 27Q, get the multi input with hdmi and make this less of a hassle?
Again, I appreciate the help. I just got the Kanex adapter, and same issue. LED turns blue, screen comes up, and then just shuts off. It sometimes tries again, but never stays up. Booting into Windows 8 via Bootcamp works fine.
I think I may try the official Apple Adapter, but one thing that I have noticed about when it does come on. There are faint black vertical lines throughout the screen. I'm not sure if anybody else has seen this before and have tried a solution related to this. I ordered another cable, but they sent a single link, so I have to wait on a replacement (much cheaper than running to the store to try it out).
Anyways, thanks again, but if anybody has any insight on the vertical lines that may help me along, thanks.
