Am trying to connect a Caldigit TS3 plus to my Razer Blade 15' onto a Samsung C27F390FHE 27" monitor using a Aten VC986 DisplayPort to 4K HDMI Active Adapter and having no success. 


Have tried several other adapters (as Caldigit annoyingly just as a Displayport no HDMI) as note it has to be active not passive but still no joy. 


Monitor work fine when I plug it in direct to the the Razer, and Razer is connecting to the Caldigit fine via Thunderbolt connection. 


Any ideas, do I need to go for a tried and true brand adapter, didn't expect it to be this fussy...

The CalDigit TS3 seems to have a Thunderbolt 3 port at the back.


I have a TB3 dock with the near-similar port layout. To get two monitors working, I use a Satechi HDMI to USB-C adapter and plug it to the TB3 port, and it even works on daisy chain setups.
