Recently, I bought a Dell U2711, which has a maximum resolution of 2560x1440, however, if you're using HDMI, it will only allow 1920x1080. I've been fiddling with custom resolutions and such, but it doesn't seem to work for me, also I don't like the idea of having to compromise for frames for second.
Now, my question is, is there some kind of adapter from HDMI to DL-DVI/DP (as this are the only cables that will allow the maximum resolution on the U2711)? I read something about passive and active adapters, saying that you need an active adapter because otherwise DVI would funtion single link, and not dual link, but I also read something about HDMI's backwards compatibility with DVI...
I'm very confused.
Another thing I picked up, is that this cable (http://www.amazon.com/Kumo-High-Speed-HDMI-Cable/dp/B0085B0QNC) works. Don't know if that's true, and I'm not really willing to buy it unless someone can confirm this.
The one who can solve my problem, gets an imaginary cookie from me, and (optionally) an imaginary hug.
Hope you can help!
Thanks in advance.
