Display Port Extension for Pimax 8k X

I have a display port extension (15m / 50FT) and a adapter (female/female). It works perfectly with valve index, but not with a pimax 8k X. I think the problem is the adapter. I tried two adapters (one passive and one active), see below for details.
Could anyone suggest an adapter for me (preferably: passive), pls?

I ended up using the Lindy active repeater:

I can’t guarantee it’ll work but it seems like the Lindy repeater has been the most successful one when used with the 8KX… :slight_smile:

Holy smokes, 75 euros for a repeater?

I use this repeater, too. But with a 8k plus and he works fine. And yes he’s expensive but he works :slight_smile:

But you can use now cheaper cables :joy:

Passive DisplayPort Cables (male/male)

I only tested a few passive cables with the Lindy 38415 Repeater and 5 meter passive cables didn’t work but if 3m is enough for You I would think any good quality DisplayPort cable at 3m length would work as long as it’s coupled with the repeater.

The following cable has been verified working:

Do you mean “3m” or “3m DP (geflochtene)”?
And if I want 1,8m - will it work too with Lindy? Then what cable I should choose “1,8m DP” or “1,8m DP (geflochtene)”?

Hey TForm4, This is the cable I use with the Lindy repeater. https://www.amazon.com/KabelDirekt-DisplayPort-Supports-Lockable-Connector/dp/B07HL7RSRW/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=KabelDirekt+–+8K+DisplayPort+Cable+Version+1.4+(VESA+Certified%2C+Supports+8K+60Hz%2C+4K+120Hz%2C+HBR3%2C+DSC%2C+HDR10%2C+DP8K)+–+10+feet&qid=1613115834&s=electronics&sr=1-1

I use the 10 foot cable aka 3 meter length and it works great.

I need 2 meters (6 feet) that’s why I asked )) So 6 feet from your link should work too I think…

I’m pretty sure the only difference is the looks and feel (there’s a “sock” on one of them)… :slightly_smiling_face:

If 3m works (which it does) I would think a 2m of same manufacturer + model would work too (unless they skimped on the quality of that one)… :+1::wink:

Lindy repeater became USD 90.55 instead of 101,98 € on those link. Seriously cheaper. Is it still the same, didn’t they replace it with something other?

Most likely the same.

Visually do things look more less the same as running direct cable input vs repeater and extension?

Yes. No difference to me.

Anybody seen this Lindy repeater on amazon.com? I didn’t find :frowning: Or similar that works 100% with 8KX?
