Default Slimport, problems (flickering)

Hi

(Sorry if this should be in Q&A I thought it would fit better in accessories, mod please move if it's in the wrong place)

I just got a SlimPort adaptor in the mail and i was exited to try it out.

This is the model I got: eBay


But iv'e had nothing but problems since plugging it in...

The signal keeps flickering off and on again, sometimes the screen just turns to snow when it does that.

It does these things every 30 secs or something, faster if i start up Riptide GP2, which i wanted to play with a PS3 controller connected by bluetooth.

I'm running stock 4.4.2 with SuperSU, Xposed with Greenify and Franco r49

Anyone know if its a problem with the cable or the software, and if it's the software does anyone know a fix?


Thanks

I ordered my slim port from Aliexpress for around 10$ and haven't had any issue with it. If you've changed the hdmi and it still gives problem then obviously it's your adaptor. You can't really do much with it except request a refund or replacement.
