    Hi,

    Got a problem with my Optoma projektor, since i´m using a OPPO HM-31 hdmi switch that doesn´t support Dual-link DVI, so my macpro can´t display anything and just keep switching between desktop and blue screen. I´m connectting from 2600xt via dvi-hdmi through a hdmi cable. Without the switch there´s no problem.

    Q: Is it possible to by bypass Dual-link DVI, so that my hdmi-switch only receives a Single-link DVI signal?

    I would imagine that using a single link DVI cable would do what you are looking for.

    Chances are you are currently using a dual link cable.

    A single link cable will have fewer pins in the connector.
    Look for one, you probably have one laying about, and compare it to your current cable.
