  1. They work just fine for me on the youtube app.
  2. That won't work, as that's a DVI-D cable, and they need DVI-I. Instead, an (active!) adaptor like this should work: Otherwise, if you'd like something else, I recommend buying a monitor second hand, as you can get much more for your money that way.
  3. Well, presumably, you have a monitor connected to the motherboard displayport port, and a graphics card installed. Conmect the displayport cable to the graphics card instead, it should then work.
  4. Many old graphics cards used DVI-I, indeed. (one of the best ports, in my opinion) Yup, I'm using the same cable (tried it with multiple, even). The artifacts don't occur when I plug the VGA cable with HDMI -> VGA adaptor into my laptop. When I got this GPU, I also experienced the artifacts, and after extensively trying everything out, found that it had to be the VGA cable/port on the GPU, unfortunately.
  5. DVI-I does that indeed, but unfortunately the GPU has a DVI-D port, which is only digital, so my DVI-I <-> VGA adaptors wouldn't work (or even fit).
  6. This is the one I have. I'd love to use the VGA port, but it sadly gives artifacts on the screen, which is obviously not desirable.
  7. Thanks. I think I have active adapters: And they work on my laptop just fine, so it's weird that they don't work on the HD 6570. The HDMI port itself works just fine, I tested that again.
  8. Hello, I'm trying to connect a GPU (Radeon HD 6570) with an HDMI to VGA adapter, and a VGA cable (3 meter) to a VGA monitor (LG Flatron E2040S), but it doesn't work. It just says "Power saving mode" when connecting the cable. When I connect the same setup to my laptop's HDMI port, it just works without a problem. The HDMI port should work just fine, as I've used it before with an HDMI to HDMI cable without issues. Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this issue, and how to solve it? Thanks in advance.
  9. Just today I read that an RTX 3060 Ti is rumoured to be launched on December 2nd, so maybe that could be something for you.
  10. I also have an RT-N66U. I'm not really sure what your question is. Do you have ethernet as input and want WiFi as output? If so, just plug an ethernet cable into it. If you want it to have WiFi as input, I don't know if that would work, I'm afraid.
  11. Is this intended? Browser: Chrome. Phone: OnePlus 7 Pro. Maybe putting the Featured topics above the Discord/merch/floatplane/support box, and making the Topics twice as wide would be a good idea.
  12. Whoops, I thought about it, but then still forgot to add that part into my post. I edited it in now. I'll quote what I edited in here too, for convenience: "The time can already be seen by hovering your mouse above it on desktops, but that unfortunately doesn't work when you can't use a mouse, such as on your phone. And even so, I think this would be more convenient anyways."
  13. I do actually think that that was better. I also tried going to a thread (the thread from Bengali), and while I'm not entirely sure if it's loading correctly (images are missing, so I'm not sure if anything else is missing too), I think I like that more too. One specific suggestion, that the old old forum did have: the time of posts doesn't show. For that thread, it just says "Posted January 4, 2013", while the old old forum shows this: "Posted 03 January 2013 - 11:06 AM", which I much prefer. Even when it says "Posted 46 minutes ago", I think it would be great if it were to be ex
  14. Yes, there definitely was something before! My experience is exactly opposite that of yours; I always saw the tag before the change, and always miss it now. I guess it has something to do with where we naturally look. The font has fortunately already been changed back.
  15. I was there. I left for about 3.5 years because of that overhaul.
