Problem with monitor (HDMI-DisplayPort cable)
I've used my RPi 3 with the latest version of Recalbox in my TV and in my Dell monitor, with an HDMI-HDMI cable (TV) and with an HDMI-DVI cable (on my Dell monitor). I bought an HDMI-DisplayPort cable because I want to have my PC and my RPi connected to the monitor and not having to change the cable every time I want to play, but when I plug it in, the screen appears black and detects no signal, and I don't know why this is happening. Anyone can help me? I've tried the cable with other devices and it's working fine.
Well, seems to me you're the first one to try. If you don't even get the rainbow screen at star, then this looks bad ... I haven't even seen people reporting it was working on the official rpi forum ...
If I understand you use the dell monitor with the PC using the HDMI-DVI cable and the RPI with the HDMI-Display port cable?
Have you used the RPI with the HDMI-DVI cable?
I wanted to use a DVI-DVI cable to connect the PC to the monitor, and a small HDMI-DisplayPort cable to connect the RPi 3, because I had already bought those cables, but since this hasn't worked, I've deceided to buy a 2m DisplayPort cable to connect my PC, and a short HDMI-DVI cable to connect the RPi 3. I don't have a clue why the HDMI-DisplayPort cable is not working with the RPi 3, so I will use the HDMI-DVI cable, which is working fine.
