FOR FUCK'S SAKE

My verdict on display ports? From 1 to 10 10 being horrible as fuck I'd say it's about the same amount of times my fucking monitor went black and I almost had a siezure.

This may have nothing to do with programming but honestly, it fucking sucks. I've read so much online about how DP is better but no. I've never had a problem with HDMI, but HERE COMES ALONG THE MAGICAL DP. I was playing a FPS game and my left monitor went black over and over and I almost had a siezure. So I umplug the DP cable and my game fucking switches to my right monitor which is portrait mode, AND IT WASN'T EVEN SIDEWAYS GAMING... IT WAS PORTRAIT ON ONE FUCKING MONITOR... PORTRAIT.

I HAD TO PLAY THE REST OF THE GAME LIKE THAT. IN PORTRAIT MODE. THE DOOR FRAMES IN THE GAME WERE SO SKINNY IT LOOKED LIKE PAPER COULDN'T FIT THROUGH IT.

    Sorry to hear that. Since I like DisplayPort for some unknown reason, I am going to shamelessly accuse drivers for that.

    Interesting, I'm still on the DVI bandwagon, but will probably go DP with the upgrade. I've had some terrible experiences with HDMI like the screen not being able to "wake up" after Windows sleep mode

    I'm with DVI too, still use it a lot on sensitive equipment (eye tracker) because is the most stable (fixed edids rule)
    DP (God this sounds wrong) is hdmi without the patents if I remember correctly.

    DP is from the same group that standartised wall mounts(vesa) and hdmi is from the film industry.

    HDMI is crippled by its shitty DRM. I don't have any experience with DP but HDMI can suck my sweaty balls.

    @Jop- Lol whatever do you mean? The whole point of DRM is that it's not optional.

    @Jop- I'm talking about using it, not developing for it. HDMI is flaky and unreliable in my experience.

    @Jop-
    Hdcp can mess things up, even in situations where no intellectual property is at any danger on complex multimedia setups ( think multiple matrixes, capture cards, hdmi cat extenders). So yes drm can be bad.

    I like DP 'cause it sounds dirty. *Hihi*
    I'll show myself out
