does anyone here has a htpc working setup that use gtx nvidia video card for monitor display using dvi-d out and hdmi out from the card to receive i.e onkyo nr515 ? have it working and no display problem?
i want to know what hardware you got, monitor model, gtx model and receiver model.
because i have a htpc right now using gtx 670 dvi-d out for monitor and hdmi out to my receiver and the desktop of the pc is normal.
i just bought a dell s2340m monitor and hook it up the same way as before and i got this problem, it like the desktop is showing but no desktop icon at all. and the mouse is showing, and when i press alt+crlt +delete the screen turn black. and i press ESC to cancel and it jump back to that same screen.
here is some info.
my old setup the monitor is asus ms238h that have hdmi support: 1 x HDMI, 1 x AV Audio HDMI -- i have never seen any monitor that state 1xAV audio hdmi before. could this be the reason it work with this monitor and will never work with others monitor even with HDMI?
all i want is to upgrade a monitor and use same cable setup and get same result. apparently it not working with this dell s2340m and i have to return it tomorrow and try with a hdmi support monitor.
please share the setup that work for you and maybe advice why it didnt work with the dell monitor?
