Hello,

I want to set up all my monitors + tv to my computer. I have a 2080 TI Windforce that has 1 HDMI, 3 Displayports and a 1 USB-C

I purchased a HDMI to Display Port for my 2nd monitor so that I could free up the HDMI port for the TV (no other ports viable).

My main monitor is using a DisplayPort, when I used the HDMI/DisplayPort cable on my 2nd monitor both my screens will go black for 1-2 seconds every few minutes.

On the original setup (2nd monitor with HDMI-HDMI, main monitor with DisplayPort to DisplayPort) I experienced no issues.

I reverted back to just manually switching the HDMI cable whenever I wanted to connect my PC to the TV.

Any help?

Thanks!
