I tried with the 3m cable and it didn’t work for me either.

That’s why I went on to try out fiber optic cables + repeaters… :slight_smile:

maybe only a repeater with my 3m cables would work?

Might do, but remember to check the “gender” of the connections… :wink:

The repeaters have female connections so they’re for “normal” male/male cables, not extension cables.

So I tried the Cable Matters 5m active extension, both their USB and combo USB and displayport,

The displayport cable doesn’t work, the Pimax 8KX doesn’t even show up as connected in PiTool.

However the USB cable works and when I chain both of the USB connections to the PC but keep the DP plugged in directly to the PC, then PiTool is happy.

Going to try a fiber cable and active repeater for the DP next and will report

Did just order 2m extension so in some days I will know if it will work for me.

Small update…
Tried two active repeaters, and both copper and fiber display port extension cables and no combination worked at all sadly.

Still waiting on the LINDY repeater to see if that one can work.

These are the products I tried here and failed:
(driven by a 2080Ti FWIW)
