I’ve just purchased a CSV-5200, and have instantly struck a problem. I have 2 AOC 1920×1080 monitors, and I bought the CSV-5200 because the AOC product page says that the monitors support DP1.2a. When I connect everything together with DP cables, my laptop correctly identifies that I’ve connected the two monitors (it recognises the model name, resolution, etc.), and it seems to be sending a correct signal, but my monitors only show a black image. The monitors show that they are receiving a signal (green activity light indicates it’s trying to display something) but the image is black and I can’t access any on-screen menus.
With a little further investigation I’ve found that despite the monitor production features page saying it supports DP1.2, the specifications page says DP1.1.
Should it be possible to connect DP1.1 monitors to the CSV-5200 using MST and DP cables? I’m wanting to extend the display, not mirror it.
I should add that I’ve tried using DP->HDMI adapters to connect the monitors and then everything works perfectly. But this is not a good solution for me, as I need the HDMI ports on the monitors free to connect a different device. I really want to use the MST Hub with DP connections on the monitors.
