SuperVidel DVI connection

Postby TheNameOfTheGame » Tue Sep 24, 2019 4:34 pm

Finally getting my SuperVidel installed in my original falcon case.

I don't like putting the DVI cable in like this:

Has anyone found a good solution to get the DVI connection out to the back of the falcon case without a big, bulky cable?

I have the dual VGA/DVI cable on mine, still doesn't have a good way to get out of the case though, so my lid has been off forever. Would have been nice if they'd put a mini DVI port on it.

So I bought one of these; https://www.amazon.com/Extension-CGTime ... 081&sr=8-2 It works with the DVI connection, but sadly does not support the dual-monitor output that my VGA/DVI cable does.

I'm using a short DVI -> HDMI (female, mounted into the Falcon's case) adaptor from eBay. HDMI because I couldn't find a short DVI->DVI extension cable.

Yeah, I say a few of those. Was hoping to retain the potential of using two screens. Not sure if you can split out HDMI like that. I am getting to the point that I may attempt to just make a cable...then I could at least attempt to keep the size if the plug to a minimum.

I'm also using a short 15-20 cm DVI to female HDMI-cable, that is turned 90 deg towards the back of the case and just barely exits the case.

But I don't think you can do dual head off of that at all, can you?

You're correct. I don't use the VGA output at all, just the DVI signal.
