Eyefinity Display Detection Issues(1xHDMI, 2xDP) - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
I am at my witts END with this BS. Every AMD agent has a different theory and most of them conflict. I'm SEVERELY dissapointed with AMD on this and regret going with their card at this point. That being said, I'd still like to get this thing working.

No ideas though at this point. So confused and everyone says something different.

I've tested all ports the ports are fine.

I've tried one HDMI->HDMI, one HDMI->DVI, and one HDMI-> MiniDP and that doesn;t work either so it's not a port/signal sharing issue.

I'm using the &^%&^%! approved dongle AMD said would work.

Would it kill them to just print up a 'things you should know about eyefinity' guide for users?

If this doesn;t resolve itself quickly I'm going to become the loudest anti-AMD voice on the interwebz.

Using adapters of course.

The 6870 doesn't even have 3 HDMI ports

using my 5970. I had to use the mini-Display port to display port adapter. Then I had to use a display port to dvi adapter which was active (only would work up to 1920x1080). Now I tried using VGA to DVI adapter on that same line and it didn't work. You may want to check if all of your adapters are confirmed working together. The issue you are having is the same issue I had when I was using a PASSIVE adapter. Each display on its own worked, but all together only 2 of the 3 monitors would come up. I have a feeling your adapter may not be active.

But I got it off of AMD's list of approved adapters...

Accell B086B-002B HDMI to MiniDP.

One agent claimed that active/passive adapters are just for legacy connections(vga, dvi) and does not apply to HDMI-> miniDP.

Another agent claimed I cannot use one HDMI and two miniDP because I need at least one DVI->miniDP.

AMD needs to get on the ball, seriously. The CSR training is inadequate, the product support is inadequate, and I'm at the end of my rope on this.

Going to go out on a limb and guess that one or both of your adapters are defective. Maybe a bad batch, who knows, wouldn't be the first time. No other explanation makes any sense, everything else has been tested and eliminated as an issue. Maybe try a different brand.

Stop being dense. Watch the ncix video. Then switch everything to dvi adapters, then to hdmi. Then enjoy your eyefinity or sell it?

add $100 adapters to the price of the setup and NVIDIA SLI becomes a better deal. I'm also so down on AMD after this whole experience, I'll remain Nvidia fan for life now most likely.
