    I have a Sony VPL11HT and a HTPC with a nvidia 6600GT with twin DVI outs

    Situation 1

    From the HTPC DVI out I used a DVI to VGA convertor, then a cheap VGA breakout Cable R G B H V straight into the PJ all ok no problem


    Just bought 10m DVI Cable and have plugged that into the Nvidia, then the DVI cable runs into a DVI out wall plate, I have pushed a DVI to VGA contvertor into the wall plate and then my cheap break out cable and it doesn't work????


    Is there any technical reason for this?

    Thanks

    Is the cable a DVI-I cable? It must be DVI-I to get the analogue signal.

    Hello Andy thanks for the reply

    Well you could be right its DVI-D cable, which incidentally I bought from you!

    I thought the more expensive DVi-D cables did both obviously not


    I wish I was dead!
