I have the USB-C 4K (UD-ULTC4K).
I have a Dell XPS 15 (9570).
I have 2 Asus 24" monitors (VE248H, mfg 09/2017). They have VGA, HDMI, and DVI.
I purchased a Cable Matters DisplayPort to HDTV cable (actually it was a 2-pack) (102003-6 x2).
I would like to use - ideally, 3 (2x DP and 1 HDMI) - or minimally, 2 (1x DP and 1HDMI or 2x DP and 0 HDMI) - monitors connected to the docking station.
I’m able to connect to either monitor via the HDMI port (using a standard HDMI cable), but when I try to use the above cables to go from the DP on the dock station to the HDMI port on the monitor - nada.
Do I have the wrong cables I’m assuming the cables (which I purchased on Amazon) are passive, but I don’t think I need active?
