Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

Unfortunately no, this device has an intended source and an intended destination.  Refer to the title of the webpage for this order.

This is an active video signal converter.  

A passive video signal converter changes the type of connection that is being used but does not change the signal that passes through the converter. Because the video signal is not modified, passive converters tend to be smaller, simpler, and less expensive than active video signal converters. Examples of passive converters include DVI-I to VGA, HDMI to DVI, and DisplayPort to Mini-DisplayPort converters.

An active video signal converter modifies both the type of connection that is being used and the signal that passes through the converter. Because this type of conversion can be complex, active converters tend to be larger than passive video signal converters and sometimes require additional power. Examples of active converters include DVI-D to VGA, HDMI to DisplayPort, and VGA to HDMI converters.

For more information about passive and active DisplayPort video signal converters, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/DisplayPort_Converter_DP_Multi_Mode.

For more information about which type of video signal converter you should use when you convert video signals with an MST hub, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/mst_hubs_passive_vs_active_adapters.

Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface that can contain different types of signaling, based on the application. DVI cables and ports are created using different connector types to identify what application they are intended to be used in. The connector types are identified by the number of pins on the DVI connector. DVI comes in the following five different connector types: 

Single and Dual link DVI indicate the maximum resolution capabilities of the video source or video destination. The maximum resolutions are Single Link (1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz) and Dual Link (2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz).

Note: The maximum resolution of your video source and video destination are ultimately determined by the technical specifications of the devices. The connector type is not a definitive indicator of the maximum resolution.

DVI-A carries only analog (for example, VGA) with no digital component. DVI-D carries only digital video (for example, HDMI) with no analog component. DVI-I combines DVI-A and DVI-D connections to include both analog and digital components. A DVI-I port may be on either your video source or display, but whether or not a display carries either or both analog and digital sources depends on the technical specifications of your device.

Installation

This device is plug and play. It does not use any drivers, and does not require any setup tasks other than plugging in the source (for example, a computer) and the destination (for example, a monitor).

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a video adapter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video cables

  • Video adapter

  • Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)

  • Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different cable, video adapter, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Remove the video adapter from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video adapter.

  • Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.

Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, adapter, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.

Try the following:

  1. Check that the monitor’s video port works with another source.
  2. Check that the cables between the source and the destination work with other equipment.
  3. Check whether the video adapter works with another source and another destination.

The error “Out of Range” normally means that the resolution being output by the computer is not compatible with the display. Try lowering the resolution to see if that helps resolve the issue.  You may need to connect another monitor or restart the computer or source to accomplish this.

(5 stars) uncomplicated and a snap to use

By:
I am not exceedingly tech savvy so I was pleased when I received the HDMI2DP HDMI to DisplayPort Active Converter at no cost to sample and test for this review. I opened the box to a cord with a power source attached, 3 adapter ports/prong types and the ‘power house’ brick. It is important to note that the box does not come with HDMI or Displayport cable. I selected the US adapter port and slid it into the power source. There is a small push button to release the adapter port. Unlike some “release” buttons, this one did not require breaking a nail to dig in, and it was easy to switch out the prong types as needed. Next I plugged the power source into the wall and the reciprocating DC/5V point on the ‘power house’ (as I have dubbed it). The power house has 2 LED lights, one on each side which advises if the particular connections on that side of the device are connected. Following this I plugged in my HDMI cord on the labeled side and my Displayport Cable to the other side. Done! DisplayPort output via HDMI. It worked across various resolutions (all at 60Hz): 1024x768, 1280x720p and 1920x1080p. I do want to point out that the ‘power house’ does get hot. To put this in perspective, my computer ‘power house’ on the cord gets medium warm, but it’s not hot. This centralized box does get pretty hot; however this is not unexpected since it is small and when you consider all the electricity running through it. However, unlike a computer charger which is plastic, the StarTech unit is a metal box. I am not sure if this design was to reduce the heat, but I would have thought plastic (since it is not a conductor) would reduce the heat output. Since the video output sometimes blacks out I`ve occasionally had to cycle the power when it`s been on for a couple of days. My brother in-law says it is because the device is a “passive converter”. Simply put- this device is uncomplicated and a snap to use. No drivers to be installed making it straightforward. The image is accurate and the sound quality is effective which, when all combined is precisely what is necessary! *The person who wrote this review received a free sample for providing an open and honest review of the product.

(3 stars) Good but didn't work for me

By:
I bought this device to connect it to our Projector. However, it doesn't work with 1080i resolution. 720P worked fine and I suspect that 1080p will work well too. Just don't expect it to work with interlaced signal (1080@30hz). Besides that I liked that it came with a universal ac adapter and a Mini DP to DP cable

Hello, Thanks for sharing your feedback on the HDMI2DP converter. We wanted to mention that the HDMI2DP should have no issues supporting the resolution you were trying. However, without knowing you source and the model of the projector, we cannot be 100% sure where the issue may lie. Thank You,

(2 stars) Runs Hot, Stops working

By:
I purchased this item in September 2013. I needed to connect an HDMI computer output to a Data Port input on my projector. The converter works but runs really hot and stops working after a few hours. I have to disconnect the power and reconnect it to get it to work again. This is a real pain because the projector is mounted on the ceiling.

Thanks again for letting us know. What you originally experienced with the HDMI2DP would definitely be frustrating. Based on our discussion with you, we determined the HDMI2DP was located too close to another heat source (the projector), but moving the unit to an area with better ventilation fixed the problem. If you run into any more issues, feel free to contact us again at 1-800-265-1844 or through e-mail at support@startech.com.
