Since the graphics card had two DVI ports, I thought I would just use the standard DVI to VGA converters I used in the past. I quickly learnt about the different DVI ports that exist and how on this particular card, one of the ports was DVI-I which worked with the converters (as it transmits both analogue and digital signals) while the other was a DVI-D that only transmitted digital and the converter did not even plug in due to a physical difference between the two. I then did my research, found and ordered this adapter, plugged it in and success.
Update: Two days in, and multiple reboots later, having an issue with the device. I'd say 1/5 times it doesn't work even using the supplied USB power booster. Going to continue testing, but as it stands, will return and am lowering my review.
The secondary power was needed, so make sure you've got a free USB port but the image quality is fine. It's a tad on the pricey side but hey, once again, it works.
If you've got an R9 290 and a monitor with only VGA inputs, this is what you need.
I wanted to connect 2 VGA monitors which are 1440x900 and 1280x1024 to my computer. After hours and days of researching, and help with a friend to see if you could put VGA to DVI-D, it came to the conclusion that you can't just use a converter to connect VGA to DVI-D due to the VGA sending only analog signals. At first, I bought a plastic converter for $5.50 that was colored gray with the DVI-D on the front and the VGA on the back. Once it arrived, I plugged the converter into the DVI-D port as tightly as I could so it wouldn't budge, and then I connected my VGA cord into it. I turned on the computer and as a result, it didn't work. After on the verge of giving up and just sticking to one monitor, the StarTech converter was my last resort. A converter for $25 was a bit intimidating, since someone on a review said that it didn't work after 3 days, but I took the risk.
Now on to the review of the converter. It was a simple set up, just the matter of plugging everything in. I'm not too sure if the USB cable to the converter actually sends in more power to the converter since other reviewers have said that it doesn't need it. I just leave it connected anyways. After tightly plugging everything in, I turned on the computer and both of my monitors powered on. I realized that my main monitor, which is the 1440x900, kept on appearing as Monitor #2, and my 1280x1024 as Monitor #1. After looking around the monitor settings and properties, nothing worked until I realized that I had to switch the VGA plugs.Read more ›
The issue I was trying to solve was connecting 3 monitors to a Evga GTX 760 graphics card with on of them going through a VGA KVM. Problem is once you install the drivers the VGA / analog signal is turned off when a digital (HDMI and/or DVI-D) monitor is connected. So you must use some sort of digital to analog converter. Windows looks at the signal from your monitor to decide what can be displayed and evidently to enforce HDCP does checks for monitor changes regularly. So unless the KVM fakes a signal to all PCs connected to it Windows will reconfigure (scramble) ALL your windows when you switch to another PC. As far as I can tell almost no KVMs do this correctly but if you have and older graphics card it might not do the polling either so you will not notice. If you are looking for an adapter to hook your late model computer to your KVM I'm sorry to say you are probably looking at a lost cause. I finally found this post [...] which outlines the issue.
Now the reviews:
This is for my main 27 inch display on my main computer which I'm on most of the day doing programming and video editing so it has to be very legible. All the adapters all are simple to install and come in easy to open, all cardboard, packaging that fits nicely without a lot of extra inserts or wrappers.
I started with the StarTech.com DVI2VGAE worked great. Nice clear picture till I switched the KVM. Which I know now means it was working correctly but did not solve my problem.Read more ›
