Active DP to HDMI adapters/cables should be used instead of passive ones.Hi guys, VK5 user here. I currently need extra HDMI ports to connect a 1080p 60Hz display. However, when I try to plug a DP to HDMI adapter into the VK5 DP Extension, it doesn’t work. The adapter will only work if I plug it directly into the GPU.
I’ve tried using upgraded DP 1.4 extensions as well as active and passive DP to HDMI adapters. Any suggestions?

Would you be able to try using a single active DP male to HDMI male cable? Having a series of 3 cables may be causing issues.
