The nuts and bolts:

I have small LCD capable of displaying 1280x800 natively. I connected it to my laptop, and the laptop was able to detect this display. I purchased this display specifically for it to be a field monitor for my Canon 7D camera. The 7d has a mini-HDMI port. My LCD panel has a DVI port, no HDMI. I connected it using a mini HDMI-HDMI cable, and a HDMI-DVI adapter on one end. I have been completely unsuccessful in seeing anything display. I know the problem is not with the camera HDMI port, or the HDMI cable. I was able to successfully connect it to a monitor with an HDMI port, and it displayed a crisp picture. So the question is, are there any signaling issues going on when you use a mini HDMI cable with a DVI adapter on the other end? I can't for the life of me figure this out. Please help a brother out.

I am having the exact same problem. Canon 7D to Marshall 10" field monitor with DVI in. The converter doesn't seem to work, in getting the signal to the monitor.


This is an old issue and I'm hoping someone has figured out a solution?

borrow someone's blu ray player and / or dvd player with an hdmi output. Use a normal hdmi cable and your dvi converter to display to your monitor. IF it works then its likely not the converter. Based on my experience with an cheap HD video camera, the mini-hdmi cable that came with the camera is "suspect" even though it is relatively short (1M). I have to seat it well and also "restart" my camera a few times to get it to work with a samsung display.
