Shimian Q270 Lite HDMI 1.4 to DVI -D?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if it would be possible to use my laptop that has hdmi 1.4 support for my shimian Q270 lite and what i would need to get this going. Assuming hdmi 1.4 can ouput a 4k resolution, so it must be dual link right? What would i need to get this working just an hdmi to dvi-d cable; i assume?

It is not possible to run your Q270 over dvi via HDMI to dvi converter. HDMI 1.4 is not compatible with DL-DVI.

I have just tried to connect the HDMI port of my Clevo P151SM Haswell CPU laptop to my Shimian 27" QHD( has DVI only port) via a PureAV HDMI to DL-DVI cable but it just has a blank screen. It can run my 1920x1200 DGM monitor though. I am trying to use it to run as extended or main display in W8.
As far as I can find out, I need to use the mini or standard Displayports via a display port to dual link DVI cable. I am in the process of trying to find a cheap (just incase it doesnt work) cable or displayport to dual DVI adapter.Most of the adapters seem to specify 1080p max resolution though.
If anyone has tried this or can link to a suitable connector I would be very grateful.
