I use the latest 13" MBP retina and I wanted to use an external display (LG IPS231) through hdmi but the LG doesn't have an HDMI port.
So, I plugged the HDMI cable into my laptop to an HDMI to DVI adapter which I, then, plug into the screen. That doesn't work. Both screens flicker when I plug and unplug the monitor and the MBP recognises the screen and its resolution. On the other hand, the monitor shows the no signal screen.
I don't have another monitor or other computer to test right now.
I included a picture, not sure if it's super helpful.
Thanks in advance if anyone helps!
