We have a lot of the Dell U2311Hb monitors and we're using 2 per laptop, we use USB-C to DP and HDMI to DVI cables usually for dual monitor setups. The USC-C to DP works fine but the HDMI to DVI doesn't work. The monitor recognizes something is connected but goes to sleep/power savings.
We also have slightly older Precision 5520/10's and those work just fine with the HDMI to DVI. If I had to guess I'd say maybe the 5530's have newer HDMI and aren't compatible the same way the old one's are, but wanted to see if anyone knows for sure what's causing this and if there's any possible solutions?
