I am trying to use an HDMI 4 port KVM with a docking station that has vga, display port and DVI connectors.
The display I'm connecting to has vga, HDMI and Display ports.
I can connect directly to the display using the display port or vga cables, but connecting to the display through the KVM fails (no signal) while converting the DVI from the dock to the HDMI of the KVM. I'm using a DVI to HDMI converter  The KVM is connected to the display via HDMI.

I thought DVI and HDMI would work sans the audio. But there's no video delivered there.

Any ideas why this isn't working?

Thanks for any insight.
