Yes! An actively-converted HDMI Source to DisplayPort Monitor solution!

Converts from a HDMI source device to a DisplayPort screen. USB Powered and compatible with all resolutions up to 1080p @ 120Hz. Great for connecting HDMI based media players to DisplayPort PC monitors.

For years it's been a simple matter to go from DP to HDMI because the DisplayPort standard natively supports the HDMI standard - but the other way? What a nightmare! That was until now, when this amazing active HDMI to DisplayPort converter arrived. It gives you reliable, high-resolution signal converting from HDMI v1.3 and v1.4 hardware to DisplayPort v1.2, with video support up to 1080p Full HD and 7.1 channel surround sound up to 192KHz.

As an active (powered) device, an integrated USB cable is included and essential for operation. Simply attach it to any powered USB socket, either on your Laptop, display, PC or USB wall charger (not included) and you're good to go. This additional power runs the conversion hardware that processes the HDMI standard to DisplayPort standard.

The converter cables terminate at male HDMI and USB plugs, with a small box housing the female DisplayPort socket at the other end. Use it with your own DisplayPort cable, or grab a length from us in our DisplayPort category.

Please note: We have not yet tested this product for content protection compatibility with AppleTV, Foxtel, Austar or other PayTV services and cannot guarantee this functionality

Product Review by John,
Start Quote I have been wanting to plug my Apple Cinema Display into my PC for some time and after my Apple Mac developed a fault I decided to go searching for a way to do this. After much searching I came across this product with the promise that it would enable me to plug it into my HDMI output in my PC. I had to buy a mini display port to display port adaptor but this was not an issue. I plugged the monitor into the converter , I pluged the USB and HDMI into my PC and it just worked. I did not have to adjust any settings, I did not have any fiddling, it just worked. Best value for money in my opinion. This is the way technology should be. Start Quote

Question: Can this be used with ps4 in conjunction with a benq monitor so i can play games at 120 hz with sound ,monitor is 3d ready?
Answer: "Monitor refresh rate (Hz) is not tied to frames per second (FPS). Your TV can run at 120Hz independently of the incoming image data. Most titles on the PS4 are capped to 30 or 60 FPS, and you can enjoy them at 60Hz or 120Hz without changing away from HDMI. Some people are of the opinion that 120Hz for gaming on capped 30FPS titles is undesirable. This adapter won't make a difference in the frame rate of the games or affect the potential Hz of the screen."

Question: How long a displayport cable can you connect?
Answer: "Maximum length for standard DisplayPort cables is 5 metres, which this adapter supports. We recommend to use the shortest cable possible for best results."

Question: I have a Gaming PC with 2 x GeForce GTX570's running SLI. The output from the cards is Dual Link DVI or Mini HDMI. I just purchased a AOC G2460PG 24" Monitor that ONLY has a Display Port connection (it's little brother has VGA, Dual Link DVI and HDMI).
I have purchased several cables and adapters to try to make this work but nothing. I have tried Dual Link DVI from PC to HDMI to Display Port on monitor...nothing. Have just purchased a Dual Link DVI to Display Port cable. Nothing.
Running out of ideas. Should this work?
?
Answer: "Yes. This cable is designed specifically to go from a HDMI source and convert it for use with a DisplayPort screens. Other DisplayPort to HDMI/DVI cables require DisplayPort as the source (which is why some cables have not worked for you). This one has been tested in-house and works up to 4K@30Hz, which leaves plenty of performance to accommodate your 1080p panel. However, we have not tested this with G-Sync compatibility, so we can't guarantee that part as it may need a true DisplayPort link."

Question: I purchased this cable last week to go from a Toshiba Satellite laptop HDMI port out to two new Dell U2415 monitors. I have daisy chained with DP. Works perfectly, except I can not extend the monitors. The laptop only sees the Dell monitors as one screen. Have updated every driver and checked all specs... Is it possible to have all three screens independent with this cable?
Answer: "Unfortunately not. Daisy-chaining is only available on computers which have DisplayPort v1.2 connections. This adapter speaks to the HDMI socket of your PC, which does not currently support display chaining or other advanced DisplayPort functions such as MST. Only features shared by both DisplayPort and HDMI v1.4 hardware are supported, such as multi-channel audio, deep colour, 3D and high resolutions."

Question: I'm interested in using this with a G-Sync monitor that has only one DisplayPort connection (Acer XB270HU), to connect a console. Has the cable been tested to work with G-Sync displays?
Answer: "Yes. While G-Sync technology only works over DisplayPort, G-Sync monitors can still work with non-G-Sync sources. This cable will work between the HDMI console and the DisplayPort monitor at the maximum resolution of the console/source, but G-sync will not be available. However, the Acer Predator does offer ULMB and 120Hz refresh rates which are not tied to the G-Sync technology and may be available for use with HDMI sources."

Question: Will this converter work with a PS4 Pro to convert HDMI 2.0 to display port monitor running at 2160P 30FPS?
Answer: "Our SW4131 unit conforms to HDMI 1.4 specs, as it predates HDMI 2.0. 4K playback at 30 fps is the standard for HDMI 1.4, so that will not be an issue.

However, you will not get the increased colour depth, additional audio channels, or other sundry features of HDMI 2.0."
