l recently bought an HDMI cable (Kabel Direct, 2m HDMI Cable, 1080p 4K 3D high speed with ethernet ARC) to attach my computer an ASUS K53E (1366x768) to a monitor an ASUS VS247HR HD LED Monitor (1920x1080).


When I am streaming, there are hairline streaks of red on the dark colours, mostly black. They seem to streak accross the screen i.e.,they are not permanent lines.


Is it:


1. The cable is incompatable or faulty?


2. The monitor is faulty? It is as new as the cable - 6 days.


When I use the VGA cable, this issue does not occur.


If the HDMI is not compatable with streamung, should or replace it with a DVI-D, or only use the VGA?

I prefer to use the VGA port for the primary monitor and the HDMI for the extended/expanded display element (usually a large HDTV).  The DVI interface has so many different versions, each with a different cable.  Audio is another sticky point, how it's routed (output from USB, audio jack front/back or Plugin card and their drivers.
