Hi

Windows 7 64 bit Professional

Card:  XFX HD6970

  • DVI-D
  • HDMI
  • DVI-I
  • 2 x Mini Display Port

Monitors:

2 x GW2760S

  • DVI-D
  • VGA
  • HDMI

I have used the DVI-D output on the card to one DVI-D input on one monitor.

I then tried to used the HDMI out on the card to HDMI in on the other monitor and can not get it work via windows extend desktop or Catalyst Control centre.

I have seen here and there that apparently both these ports can not work at the same time, but can not find the exact evidence in the HD6970 user manual pdf.

Any advice?

 

should i use a Active Mini Display port to DVI-D adaptor and drop HDMI to have my 2 monitors working?

 

thanks
