Hey, for some reason my new monitor only has a SL-DVI and DVI port (no HDMI, which is ridiculous may I add). Anyways, I originally had my monitor hooked up to my pc via a single SL-DVI to HDMI chord (HDMI into my GPU - 1070Ti). I just bought an oculus and as such need the HDMI port for it to run. So I spent 50$ dollars (wtf) to get a HDMI to Display Port Adapter and plugged the original SL-DVI to HDMI chord into the HDMI to Display port adapter and plugged that into my gpu; now I get no signal. There is no other way for me to do this, besides me buying a new SL-DVI to Display Port cable, which is another 50$ and will really piss me off. If a SL-DVI to Display Port works I dont see why this configuration wont work?
