HDMI TV Compatibility
The adapter supports HDMI through the 1.3 standard. To use a TV as a monitor via the adapter, the TV must support EDID, the extended display identification standard for communicating monitor capabilities to a PC.
Changing to DVI Output
The HDMI standard is built on DVI. This enables easy conversion in the video output from HDMI to DVI with a simple plug converter or using the cable as at HDMI to DVI Cable. However, conversion to DVI disables the ability to route audio through the adapter.
If you’re experiencing slowness or latency on your USB-connected display:
- Make sure your adapter is connected to a USB 3.0 port (if available) on your computer.
- If USB 3.0 is not available, play 3D games and videos on a display that isn’t connected via USB.
- When all else fails, reduce your USB-connected monitor’s screen resolution via the Windows display control panel.
By reducing the amount of data that needs to be compressed and sent over USB, you’ll increase responsiveness.
- No Hubs! USB hubs provide more ports but can’t increase the amount of data a USB port can send.
- If your system has more than one USB 3.0 Host controller, connect one adapter to each controller. You can also try adding an additional PCIe to USB 3.0 adapter card to your system as an additional controller.
- Lowering the resolution of the monitors also lowers the amount of data needed.
- Change the Windows Power Plan to “High Performance”. Modern computers try very hard to save power. Sometimes they try too hard and this can effect how much data they can send over USB.
