    Hello,

    I would really like to be able to use my 24inch LED display with my Macbook, but as the laptop has a mini-DVI connector, it doesn't work.

    Now, for much cheaper than I wold have thought (only 17$), I managed to find the 3 pieces I needed to link them. Now I know they would physically fit together, but my question is this: would the signal get to the display?

    Here's my planned set-up:


    MacBook (with Mini-DVI connector)
    +
    Mini-DVI male to DVI female
    +
    DVI male to Mini Displayport male
    +
    mini Displayport coupler (female to female)
    +
    Apple LED Display (with mini Displayport connector)


    Is there any chance the signal might get through? :-D

    Thanks

    Loa

    It sounds like it only works that way, not vice versa like you would be using it. As far as I know, you need this
