I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, and I just bought the Samsung HDTV Adapter (MHL to HDMI). However, my Dell U2412M monitor only has VGA, DVI or DisplayPort. So I also bought an HDMI to displayPort converter cable. Alas, the connection doesn't work.
I know that everything is properly connected. The Samsung MHL is properly connected to both the phone and the (official Samsung) charger. The HDMI cable goes from there to the displayPort to HDMI (female) adapter, which in turn is properly fitted to the monitor. Then, I switch the input on the monitor to DisplayPort, and sadly my monitor goes to power save mode.
Is there anything I can do to make this configuration work? If not, have you got any advice?
