Can an lcd computer monitor connect to the nextbox?

I have a couple flat screen LCD monitors at home and bought an HDMI to DVI cable. I wanted to connect this to the HDMI port on the back of the NextBox. Will this work?

Hello cad024


I don't see why it shouldn't work. It should work if it has a hdmi connection or if u get the hdmi to dvi cable.

Yeah, this should work.

 

Now, you would only get VIDEO this way, as DVI doesnt carry audio.
So you would need to output from either the optical, or stereo output from the nextbox, into something (an AVR, to a set of speakers, etc)

I can get the box to work with the HDMI but the remote does not work. Anyone?

Define 'does not work' a little more specifically?

 

Are you making sure the remote is in 'CBL' mode?  i.e. whenever you press a button, the CBL button flashes?

 

Is the monitor very close to the box?  It is a known issue that sometimes the monitor, if it has 'eco mode' or a light sensor, can interfere with the IR operation of the remote...

The remote may not turn the monitor on/off
