Dell monitor not working with Odroid XU3 (DVI to Displayport)

Post by somdipdey »

I am using a Dell monitor to connect to my Odroid XU4 and XU3 devices. When I connect my dell monitor with Odroid XU4 over HDMI [dell connection from dvi to HDMI on XU4] I am able to see the output on the monitor. However, because XU3 has only DisplayPort connection, I am using a dvi cable (DisplayPort (female) to dvi (male)) for the same monitor to connect to XU3 over DisplayPort. When connecting to XU3 I am not getting any output on the monitor (no signal received). I have attached the picture of the cable that I using to connect XU3 to the monitor (or vice-versa).

I have modified the boot.ini file to host for dvi ports as well by uncommenting setenv vout "dvi" and commenting setenv vout "hdmi" but with no luck. How can I make my dell monitor get display output from my XU3 device?

P.S. I have attached my boot.ini file as well

Yes, the displayport in xu3 can't be used with adapters. It can only drive true displayports monitors only.

So, my dell monitor has DVI output. I bought a DVI to DisplayPort cable and using that to connect to the DisplayPort output of Odroid XU3. This should work because its not an adaptor, its a direct cable, isn't it?

I doubt that would work since it has an adapter inside. You'd need a monitor with native displayport input
