post #2541 of 25921
Hi all, i have the X-Star glossy, i have a very strange issue though and was wondering if anyone else has come across this, to me it seems to defy the laws of electronics.

It only works with the cable it came with, i have now bought an addition 4 cables, plus i already had 3, all DVI-D dual link, the last two the highest quality i could find. How can this be?
The cable it came with is too short for where my MacPro is located, so im in a pickle. I cant see how it could be wired differently as then it shouldn't get the signal from my GTX285 card in the first place.

Any help would be deeply appreciated. Its the only thing stopping me from buying a second one, since i cant even use the first properly smile.gif

^Strange, I just got my Tripp Lite 6 ft DVI-D cable and it works perfectly.

Weird, do you have any other computers you could try to see if its from the pc side?

Tried it with my older windows machine and same deal, works with the supplied cable but not with any of the other, although (as i forgot to add in my earlier post) they do all work with other monitors, even the samsung 27" in the living room

I was so hoping someone would say something 'oh thats bla bla bla, do this and all will be well.'

Its certainly got me stumped too.

Could it be a DVI-i cable it came with?

No, its definitely DVI-D, in fact the very first cable i bought (not counted in the 4 i said i bought earlier) i accidentally bought a DVI-I dual link cable. Should have paid more attention. But i didn't even notice till i tried plugging it in, which obviously did not work.
