Just picked up a CSV-5300A to work with my Sapphire RX480 8GB video card.
I confirmed it works without issues with DisplayPort monitors (tested 2 including a 30″ 1600p).
When I plug in adapters to convert from DVI to DisplayPort I get black screens, snow, or shifted image even after resetting. I confirmed my adapters are passive.
This is occurring using different monitors, different DVI cables, different adapters, I even tested it on a different video card (onboard Intel HD4600). The adapters were tested plugging directly into the video card, the adapters and monitors work fine when bypassing the CSV-5300A.
I even tested a dual-link DVI-to-DP adapter (powered by USB), it doesn’t work (hooked it up to the 30″ monitor just to be sure it exceeded the passive bandwidth).
The firmware of the CSV-5300A is .45
Did I read the literature wrong? I was under the impression the CSV-5300A supported adapters – doesn’t seem to be the case for me.
