Subject: Re: KMS but AMDGPU And Black Screen
I'm not so sure these *aren't* active devices with a translation chip in
the middle, even my current all-in-one cable. My last dongles on my
desktop were "active", but no external power craziness., and these were the
most unstable. Club3d units, they were rated the best at the time years
ago, I wouldn't say so much. I'm not sure if any of these cables or
dongles are particularly passive devices these days. I'll carve one open
when I get annoyed enough to replace it and see.
