Apple's own mDP->dl-dvi adapter.

Any help?

Could this be a just another hdcp issue?

@toke-lahti, Does your GTX 760 has mini DP ports or is there another adapter used?

@itsage,

It has.

Next obvious Q will be: why don't you use that dvi socket.

Because I'm trying to find a way to use dl-dvi with new 5500, which I'd like to buy.

Seems to be that there are none with dl-dvi socket on the card.

And buying a new adaptor would cost as much as the whole card.

So if this Apple's adaptor can't be used, I'll have to buy 580. Which isn't so bad either. Just wasting a bit more energy in plain desktop use.

Notable is, that SysInfo tells that Apple's adapter is connected, right rez and also display tells all right freqs, but the screen is blank.

Oh well, just found out, that screen is blank, even with straight DL-dvi cable...

....and problem solved!
Somehow nvidia's webdrivers were dropped off.
Installing them again with PW and now I can order 5500 and use my apple-adapter.

Now just to find a nice cheap mechanical dp switch, so I can check easily what's happening in old mini2012...
