    Tripp Lite Mini Display Port 1.2a to HDMI 2.0 Active Adapter Cable 4K x 2K 6ft 6'
    Just a update: received this cable in today Model: P586-006-HD-V2A and this one works well
    with the Z83-4 Mini DP Port. Little high in cost, around 35.00 dollars but works great. After Three

    cables and a order to amazon finally got one that works. The Z83-4 Pro is now showing two monitors
    and I am real happy! FYI

    This DP to HDMI active adapter works for me... look up "Mini DP to HDMI Active Adapter, ICZI Mini DisplayPort" on amazon ca. $17.98 Canadian

    Make sure you have the monitor turned on and plugged in when you first start up the Minix z83-4. for first time setup. Have had no issues.

    My setup is kinda weird though... I'm using an HDMI to VGA adapter for one monitor and a DP to HDMI for the other. Was the most cost effective way for me to use dual display.

    Ken, I recently bought a DPMini to DVI cable but to my surprise, it does not work. I thought DVI and Sub-D should work without active miniDP adaptor. Please confirm!

    I am struggling to turn my 2nd monitor via Mini DP portal. I have tried with Mini DP to VGA as well as Mini DP to DVI, both did not work. Why the hell MiniX was configured with special requirement of "Active" miniDP converter?
