7970 Eyefinity with (3) Asus 24"?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I recently bought three Asus VN248 displays and is trying to hook them up to my 7970 via Eyefinity. VN248 doesn't come with either DVI or Display ports, only two HDMI ports. For some reason I can't get the third display to work. My connections are as following.

1st Display : 7970 > Minidisplay port > Minidisplay port to HDMI converter > HDMI cable > Asus VN248
2nd Display: 7970 > DVI port > DVI to HDMI cable > Asus VN248
3rd Display: 7970 > HDMI port > HDMI cable > Asus VN248

Now the problem is that I can see 3rd Display in control panel but it is "black out", the display doesn't detect any signal either. I know for sure it is not the cable. Does this mean I need to get another Minidisplay port to HDMI converter for Eyefinity to work? Does anyone know if Minidisplay port to HDMI cable will work as well?

Any help is appreciated!

You need an active DP to HDMI adapter like this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009YC3W1Y/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I run the same setup and use that adapter and it runs great, some say its possible to do without an active adapter or a direct connection DP - DP but so far i havent seen it done where it works.
