My System Specs

Default Eyefinity Troubleshooting

So I have two DVI-D single-link monitors, and a HDTV. I can't get all three to display simultaneously. It's either the tv or one monitor, or both monitors.

The card they're plugged into is a reference Sapphire 6950. The tv goes into the HDMI port, one monitor is going into a DVI port, the other monitor is going through an active mini display port Single-link DVI-D adapter. According to AMD The TV should go through the HDMI, only one DVI port should be used, and the third should go into a display port adapter.

I've tried every possible combination and port, short of getting an adapter to plug the tv into the display port. In theory I shouldn't need a second display port adapter for the second DVI monitor but it seems like the only other thing I can try at this point.

Any ideas?

What adapter are you using, could be a passive one claiming to be active.

I'm using a Power Color Active Mini DisplayPort to Single-Link DVI-D adapter.
