post #3191 of 25888
Bought a QNIX QX2710 LED EvolutionⅡ 27" 2560x1440 WQHD PLS from green-sum. Couldn't pass up paying $289 for a 1440 monitor instead of $599 for the cheapest Asus. Can't wait for it to arrive wheee.gif

HDMI to DL-DVI adapters aren't really available. I haven't found a single one for sale on the internet.

You're talking about this?

That's not an HDMI -> DL-DVI cable.That's an HDMI -> SL-DVI cable. The connector at the DVI end has nothing to do with it. The electrical connections simply aren't there since HDMI is not electrically compatible with DL-DVI.

The more you learn. I was unable to find a hdmi to dl-dvi cable as well. What 's the max output resolution of a normal HDMI output?

I'm almost positive that wont work - youll need an active adapter. If I remember correctly I tried a passive display port -> DL DVI and it didnt work on both my CrossOver and Tempest. But youre free to give it a shot

Normal?

The maximum output of a current-gen HDMI 1.4a output is 340mhz pixel clock. That may not make much sense on the context of your question, but here's how it breaks down:

At 1080p, this corresponds to a refresh rate of ~163hz. Less depending on your front/back porches etc etc. Suffice to say, about 150hz refresh.
At 1440p, this corresponds to a refresh rate of ~92hz. Same caveats as above; probably around 85hz refresh at 2560x1440.
At 3840x2160, this corresponds to a refresh rate of 40hz. Same caveats as above; probably around 35hz refresh at UHD res.

However, all that assumes that this is a native HDMI connection (HDMI source, HDMI sink), an HDMI 1.4a compliant source, HDMI 1.4a compliant sink and HDMI 1.4a compliant cable.

got my x-star from dreamseller today at the discount price..no dead pixel and slight backlight..then found irritating problem for me...all the osd button dont work(brightness/power/vol)...even the power led not function...any advice guy..or should i send it back
post #3199 of 25888
A few dead pixels or lots of panel play is an "irritating" problem; this is much more than that. I guess you are lucky it is in the "on" position (by default?). Unless it's a loose connection inside that is not something you can generally fix yourself.

In one of the videos in the OP there is an Auto and Menu button hidden on the control panel, does that actually work? Just thought I'd ask before I take mine apart.
