Display HDMI Adapter

Question: Display HDMI Adapter

Hello,

I currently found out that my TV supports 1080p.
However, it only works when HDMI is plugged in. And my card only has DVI output. And i was wondering, will the 1080p work with a DVI to HDMI adapter then?

Thanks,
Alex.

I have 2 TVs currently serving as my screens. I've lately been helping family and friends fix small issues on their computers. I've come across a few PCs that have only a VGA Display Port, while both of my screens only have HDMI ports.
I asked someone at a local parts store, if a wire that is VGA male one side and HDMI male the other, would do the job. He told me in long detail why that would never work, that I needed a signal converter to change the display signal.
Basically he said when adapting a VGA screen to a HDMI port was possible, and the reverse (HDMI screen to VGA port in pc) is not.

My question is, if I bought the cord linked below, would I have to do anything else other than just plugging it in? Or do I indeed need this converter I was told about?

Thanks in advance

Answer:VGA to HDMI Display Adapter

You will need a signal converter of some type. A simple wire cable with different connectors on each end will not work. A VGA output has three analog video signals. An HDMI input expects all digital signals.

My ThinkPad laptop computer does not have an HDMI port, so in order to connect my computer to my HDTV I use an adapter plug which accepts an HDMI cable male plug (from my TV) and then plugs into my a/v display port. I've gone thru a few of these adapters because for some reason they tend to develop connection problems, like loss of the audio portion, or whatever. The current plug is shorter than my previous ones and less likely to get bent, but all of a sudden I've lost the audio transfer again and when I went to unplug and replug the adapter to make sure the connection was secure I found it was very hot. I don't recall it ever being that hot before....some heat, yes, but this was very hot. Not a good sigh....eh?

When this same audio loss has occurred in the past, unplugging and replugging the adapter has worked, turning the TV off and back on again has solved the problem on some occasions, other times it took restarting the computer. And then on some occasions the loss of TV audio was due to my receiver input setting getting accidently altered (I run my TV audio thru my receiver and into a Dolby surround sound speaker system). None of these remedies have worked this time however.

In this case I'm more concerned about the overheating issue than my loss of audio transfer. Can anyone with good technical knowledge comment on this high heat matter....should I trash this plug immediately?....can damage be done here with an overheating plug, or is some heat to... Read more

I recently purchased a Display port to HDMI adapter for my PC. I did this because my TV (SONY XBR55X930D) displays 4k HDR and I want to take advantage of its ENHANCED HDMI setting. Now, when I hook the Display port end of this adapter into the 980ti and then plug the HDMI into the adapter for my TV I get video and support for ENHANCED HDMI, however, I receive no audio output whatsoever. I'll run DOOM 2016 I get video @4k but nothing for audio. Can't hear a thing whether its a movie, streaming audio through SoundCloud...nothing. I'm told that there should be support for audio with these adapters.

Is this not the case? Am I missing a setting?

I've done some research but am having difficulty finding a solution.

I am using HDMI 2.0a cables that support HDCP 2.2.

This is the adapter I purchased:

Hello,

Frustratingly, unless I use the Microsoft basic display adapter, I can't change my brightness. However, I can't use HDMI with this driver.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Answer:Using Microsoft Basic Display Adapter, doesn't support HDMI

That means that Win10 has not installed the correct drivers for your video chip, so it has installed the generic drivers, instead.

You need to post here what video chip you are using -- AMD, Nvidia, etc.

I am using a usb-c to hdmi adapter to output to a TV but the black levels look washed out. I had no issues with the same TV and a previous laptop that had a dedicated hdmi port. In the intel graphics settings usually there is a "quantization range" setting to change color space between RGB Limited and RGB Full if the intel graphics is driving the hdmi port. However, in this case, there is no hdmi port but instead a usb-c to hdmi adapter, thus the quantization range setting is missing. I've had the same issue before on a previous laptop with usb-c. I've tried installing thel atest drivers, including the non-validated ones from the intel website, but none give me the quantization range setting.

Hi Yuriy_volkovsky,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing an issue with No Video output from Mini display port on your ThinkPad T430.
 
Please go to BIOS and under Config menu go to Display option go to Graphics Device and check if Graphic Optimus is enabled, then boot the system and check if OS (Operating System) detection for Optimus is enabled in graphic properties.
 
Hope this helps!

I just purchased an adapter plug that allows me to connect my Lenovo/IBM thinkpad (T420) to my HDTV by plugging the HDMI cord into my TV and the other end to this adapter plug which converts the HDMI cable into a male plug which fits into my display port (there is no HDMI port on this model computer). It worked, but now I can't remove the adapter plug...it's stuck in the laptop display port. I do not know if the problem is caused by the male adapter plug or the female jack in the computer, but they're locked together now.

I have previously read review comments (on these HDMI/display port adapter plugs) mentioning this jamming happening on more than a couple occasions, but I don't recall any resolutions being mentioned except to break off (and destroy) the plug and possibly damage the display port as well. I called Lenovo tech support but they said I'd have to mail the computer to them to get it fixed. I'd prefer avoiding that if possible even though my warranty is still in effect and it would be of no cost to me.....just time lost without a computer.

I'd greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who may be aware of how to resolve this problem (and also how to avoid it happening again) without doing damage to either the plug or especially the computer display port.

Thanks for your consideration in any case....

Hello, I would love to ask for some help!
I've recently purchased the newer Dell XPS 13 9360 Non-touch (not the 2 in 1) and am having some trouble with using an external monitor. The screen (on the external monitor) keeps on flickering and has a very unstable connection. 
I've searched and found that apparently lowering the power output of the WIFI network adapter can fix this problem. 
The problem is that the current XPS's wifi adapter doesn't allow the power output to be changed. The previous fixes were geared towards intel wifi adapters.
The general power settings for the computers doesn't show wifi card power controls.

I have updated all the drivers for the computer including the wireless adapter. Still the options doesn't change.

Has anyone found a way to get a stable external monitor to work with the Killer Wireless Adapter cards?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Everyone,

I bought a new monitor last week and since setting it up I seem to be having some connection issues. In the past, I had one HDMI-out from the GPU to the AV Reciever by my TV (where I do most of my gaming) and a DVI out heading from my GPU to the PC monitor. It worked fine.

But, my old monitor stopped working last week so I purchased a new one. It doesn't have a DVI input so I purchased a Display-Port to HDMI cable which also works fine with the new monitor. The cable to the AV receiver hasn't been moved and is also working fine.

The problem though is that when I set-up my TV as the main display and the PC monitor falls asleep Windows seems to think it's connecting and reconnecting over and over again. I hear the hardware connection/disconnections sounds infinitely and the TV screen blinks a black screen every time.

I have tried a few solutions, mainly involving power-management settings. None of these worked except for disabling "USB Selective Suspend Setting", but then I was having connection trouble with my wireless devices like my mouse and steam controller.

My graphics card is a Gigabyte R9 290, and I am running Windows 10. Thanks in advance for helping me troubleshoot guys. Happy to participate and answer any questions to get this resolved.

Hi,Our 7040 minitower has two standard (not ++) DisplayPorts.  Our monitor is dvi-D (dual-link). Dell supplied the tower with a DisplayPort to dvi adapter.  The advice received was that this adapter wouldn't work because it was passive.However, hooked it up and the dvi-D (dual-link) monitor displayed perfectly.Would anyone know why this adapter succeeded (when apparently it shouldn't have)?

Answer:How did this passive display adapter do the job that should have needed an active adapter?

Its not a passive adapter.
HDMI is bi directional and passive.

No, there is no loss of quality using DisplayPort to HDMI or to another interface. I don't think there is a HDMI to DP adapter.

Eyefinity requires that all monitors beyond the second one are connected through a DP port, but an adapter can be used.

Welcome to the Sevem Forums, Oraz.

If you still have the DVD of Windows 7 home edition and if it is also 64-bit then you might find the graphics adapter driver there which might get installed. Otherwise try installing Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD7570 in Windows XP SP3 mode.

Another option is to try installing the Graphics Card AMD Radeon HD7570 that you have downloaded in the safe mode. In case the this driver gets loaded in the safe mode then it shall install too.

Answer:The best HDMI to VGA adapter

There's no such thing as a HDMI to VGA adapter. HDMI is purely digital signal, while VGA is pure analog signal. You'd have to get a converter that not only could change the shape of connector, but also decode digital sitnal and encode is as analog one. I don't even know if anybody makes such a thing. Why would you use VGA anyway? HDMI is superior in quality and functionality. VGA is susceptible to e-m noise too.EDIT: Ok I did look it up, and there are HDMI to VGA converters. I must admit I'm surprised. Still, I'd avoid it if possible. If you do need it, I can't recommend one as I never used one, but maybe using the one you can get from Lenovo might be a good idea?http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/web/LenovoPortal/en_US/catalog.workflow:item.detail?...

Answer:dvi to hdmi adapter

Generally, using a DVI to HDMI should be fine, although you should note you will not get any sound from the DVI itself. It really just depends on what screen you have, and how compatible it is. For example, on my old computer, all I had was a DVI and VGA. Because my TV was off-brand (all it had was 3 HDMIs), it wasn't able to decode the converted DVI to HDMI and thus wouldn't display anything. But for an actual computer monitor, you should be OK.

Having said that, there are two types, active and passive. The type you get will depend on your configuration. For a three monitor configuration, for example, you will want an active converter.

Hi, so here's the problem, I bought a brand new graphics card today, the problem is my monitor only has a VGA slot in it and the graphics card has HDMI and DVI. So I looked for the HDMI to VGA converter I had and used that, it was working well for awhile, no display issues at all, and then after awhile my monitor lost signal and this annoying high pitched ringing noise started, it seems to be coming from the adapter since everytime I unplug it and plug it back in, everything would work perfectly for awhile and then the same problem would start all over again. I tried using our TV directly and the problem doesn't occur with it. Is it advisable for me to buy a new HDMI to VGA adapter or is that a waste of money?

I recently ordered the Lenovo Y550 and I was just wondering about using the HDMI to connect to a monitor using a DVI adapter. The question is if I will still be able to use the laptop speakers or the headphone jack to connect to external speakers for audio. Or will the computer automatically shut them off thinking that audio is already being transmitted through the HDMI out?

Not too long ago, I bought a VGA to HDMI converter to connect my laptop to my TV, but I wasn't able to get it to work, and the tech support guy I talked to from Monoprice's chat suggested it was probably incompatible with my TV, so I had it returned, and then I bought this on the recommend of the same guy: http://www.monoprice.com/products/p..._id=1011403&p_id=8079&seq=1&format=2&rep=mike

But the problem is, I hooked it up, installed the drivers, and still I'm not getting any picture on my TV screen. I have the input set to the correct station. Everything's installed correctly. And I even reinstalled the drivers from the website of the company that produces the adapter. Still nothing.

Do you guys have any ideas? Because I've spent a lot of time trying to get this to work, and I'm not having any luck. I've asked on a couple different places, and I haven't had much luck there, either. If anyone here can help me out, I would really appreciate it.

I have a Windows 10 hp laptop and a Cable Matters HDMI to VGA adapter. I usually plug my laptop to an HD TV but am having to do this for a while.
I understand this can be tricky, as hdmi to VGA is digital to analog conversion. I got it working yesterday after plenty of fight, not in display options but windows key + p and selected extend. When done working I closed my laptop lid. Since then it has not worked. Can any you help?
I'll tell you what I've done and what it's doing. Now, Windows does indeed think it's connected to an external monitor. Everything about windows says so - there's two icons in display. I can move things to other monitor. But, the monitor doesn't agree. It's blinking in standby.
If I unplug VGA from monitor, it realizes it. If I unplug adapter from Windows, it realizes it. But there's still a gap and I can't find the answer.
I've restarted, shut down, combinations of those with plugging in adapter before / after, I've deleted generic display from device manager, tried a different monitor, and other various "windows nudges" I call em. Went to manufacturer's site, not any help there. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Hello:

I'm really hoping someone here has experience with this issue and can help me. I have a 37" Philips CRT TV which I have connected to my computer so that I can watch videos on it. I have been using it with an older laptop that has S-video output and it has been working perfectly. Recently I upgraded my computer and my two modern graphics cards do not support S-video, only DVI or HDMI. I have been using an HDMI to composite adapter with no issues except that I had to adjust the screen size to make it fit. However, the image quality is pretty bad, so I just purchased an HDMI to component adapter. I am able to make it work by setting the resolution to 480i, but when I attempt to resize the screen, the image becomes distorted beyond recognition. I really need to adjust the screen size because the edges of the screen are cut off. I have tried changing the resolution, but it doesn't work unless it's set to the default 480i resolution. I have also tried a VGA to component adapter (with a DVI to VGA adapter) and that didn't work at all. I really hope I can make this work so that I can use component instead of composite. The only other option I can think of is to install a third graphics card that supports S-video, but I'm not sure I could find one that is compatible with Windows 7.

If you're wondering why I don't just get an HDTV, it's because I play a lot of classic video game consoles that look best on my old CRT TV. I'm ver... Read more

Hi Carlosros,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with mini Display port on your ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
 
Please uninstall the current Windows updated graphic driver from the system and download the latest driver from Lenovo support site and install it, sometime compatible drivers will not support for the external monitor.

I'm connecting a laptop with HDMI to a Dell U2311's displayport however it's not picking up the signal.
I'm not sure if I'm answering my own question but after a bit of research a few posts have said that you can't have the DP as the input [to the monitor] if you have HDMI as output [from the visual source], you have to either have it vise-versa or just displayport to displayport.

Just asking for confirmation of this as I was sent a replacement cable after I believed the first didn't work, now I've got two of these cables which are probably both fine but I've got no other way of testing them.

You shouldn't have a problem with your current cable, it's practically the same as the others and capable of transferring sound.Maybe you should check either the setup of the vga drivers (part of them is the HD sound driver for the display port) or the setup of your tv connection. Unless of course the cable is faulty, it should do the trick...

Hey, I use a HP Envy x-360 m6 Convertible laptop running windows 10. I tried connecting it to my old ASUS VH192D monitor using a HDMI to VGA converter (the laptop doesn't have VGA port and the monitor doesn't have a HDMI port).  When I first connected the monitor to my laptop both the laptop and the monitor adapted to their native resolutions and were working fine. I tried to change the ASUS monitor's resolution to 1080 (native resolution 1366x768) which threw me an error saying OUT OF RANGE.  I then changed the resolution back to its dafault value but the error message was still being displayed. I hard reset the monitor and also tried a software reset. Both were unsuccessful.  On doing some research, I found that there could be numerous causes to my problem. I checked all the possibilities but I still can't find a solution. The first thing I checked was the cable and the adapter. I plugged the cable, adapter and monitor to all my other computers and it seemed to work fine. I then checked if all my drivers were up to date. I updated my display drivers individually (though they were already up to date) and also restarted my computer numerous times. As I was trying to solve my issue I noticed that my laptop no longer recognised the second monitor.

Maybe this is obvious, but it surprised me. When the DP-HDMI adapter is connected to the DP port, no sound will come out of internal or external speakers, or the headphone jack. When I unplug the DP-HDMI adapter, the sound works. This is awkward to have to disconnect the adapter when not watching TV so that we can get sound from PC. Is there a way to keep the adapter connected and still get sound through the PC speakers/jack? BTW - I do get full sound & video when the adapter is plugged in and connected to the TV. I have additional 2 DP ++ ports on the rear plate but when I plugged the adapter into either of them; no sound or video will pass to TV. Thanks for your input.M83 SFF ThinkCentre

Answer:M83 - No Sound from (Int or Ext) speakers when DP-HDMI adapter connected

Right-click on the speaker icon in the system tray notification area.  Then select "playback devices".  This is how you designate which of possibly multiple alternative audio outputs you want to use. You must pick the appropriate item shown which you want to use for your speakers. Then push the "set default" button, and you should now be getting audio sent through that path to whatever speakers or external sound system you've selected. If you want to get sound via HDMI from a TV, you obviously have to select the appropriate HDMI item from "playback devices", and also must have the proper vendor audio drivers installed that supports audio via HDMI.  This is a separate audio driver (unique from the video driver) to send out audio via the same HDMI cable supporting video to the HDMI-connected display device. What is the video card in your machine?

Question: Is there a way to use 3 external monitors + laptop screen?

FYI: Question was also asked at the plugable forum: support.plugable.com/.../thunderbolt-3-dual-hdmi-adapter-on-fedora-25

HDMI is digital only, and VGA is analog only. a cable will almost definitely not work.

Answer:Yoga 900-13ISK: No image on second monitor using USB-C to HDMI adapter

I have connected via the USB type C adapter to a Dell U2410. However the connection appears to be intermittent, as if port requires a timing response peridically to maintain the connection. It appears as a loss of HDMI connection on the monitor approx. 1/minute (for a about 2-3 seconds), then recovers without intervention.

I have an L560 with Intel HD Graphics 520 and mini DP port.  I'm trying to connect to a Philips 40" 4K LED BDM4065, using a HDMI-cable and Lenovo Mini dp to HDMI adapter OB47089.  When I connect, I'm only offered a max resolution of 2048x1152. I get 3840x2160 resolution on this screen, with the same hdmi-cable on my E540 (which I think have the same graphics card). I've also tried two adapters in case the first adapter was faulty. The screen have HDMI, DP and mini DP, and i guess I could buy a DP to Mini DP cable, but wil lthat work or will it be wasted money? And is there a resonable explanation to why the adpater cant deliver 3840x2160 as specified?

After doing a clean Windows 10 installation, the DisplayPort on my T520 was not functional. I use it with a DP to HDMI adapter to send output to my TV. The TV was not detected. In the NVIDIA control panel, I noticed that only the 3D Settings section was visible in the left hand menu bar. In Windows Programs and Features, only the Intel HD display driver installed. I tried installing the Lenovo NVIDIA driver (Win 10 version), which also requires the Intel display driver installed first. The DisplayPort still would not function. I tried uninstalling all display drivers (Intel included) and letting Windows 10 instal the standard NVIDIA driver. The DisplayPort would still not work. SOLUTION:  Uninstall all display drivers in Windows Programs and Features, both the Intel and NVIDIA. Reboot and hit F1 to enter the BIOS configuration.  Go to Config > Display.  Change the Graphics Device to Discrete Graphics. Disable OS Detection for NVIDIA Optimus.  F10 to save and exit. Log into Windows and open the Device Manager. Verify that the Display Adapter is using the NVIDIA NVS 4200M driver. The version that is working for me is 10.18.13.5362. In the NVIDIA control panel, all sections and options now show up in the left hand menu bar and the display port works great to my TV via a passive StarTech DP2HDMI2 adapter dongle. When I plug it in, my TV is recognized and the F7 screen toggle works great.&... Read more

My XPS13 9350 was one of the first with USB-C port (Thunderbolt 3) only and no DisplayPort, supplied in early 2016. It has caused a lot of headaches. As I tried to connect my external Dell monitor using  a USB-C to HDMI adapter from Dell (part no: 47KD7) there was no external display at all. Dell Support advised me to update BIOS. But it led to a complete freeze of my laptop and Dell replaced the motherboard. (It was a real nuisance as I use my laptop for work!!)
With the new motherboard,  the laptop/USB-C adapter/external monitor worked fine for 15 months. Until one day, out of the blue, the external screen started flickering with an image that was all distorted (cut in the middle). The laptop screen was fine. After a few weeks of flickering, there is no signal at all to the external screen. Moreover, as I connect the adapter in USB-C port the resolution on my laptop screen changes.
I know there have been a lot of issues with USB-C connector on XPS 13 and 15.  I have reduced wifi-power to 50%  but it has had no positive effect (several persons have said on this forum that it helped the video output). 
I am grateful to learn if anybody with similar problems found a solution. Cheers

Hey guys, Today I tried connecting my Lenovo Thinkpad Helix to my LG 24MN43D TV using a mini-DP adapter and a separate HDMI cable, however I am getting nothing - no input detected whatsoever on the television. Both the adapter and the cable are new. Does anyone know what may be causing this and how I could fix this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Answer:No input detected on LG TV when connected to my Helix via mini-DP to HDMI adapter...

Did you try on another device, like a computer monitor? To verify the problem is not with the adapter or cable.Off course you switched on the external screen using WinKey+P?

I run a laptop and projector for my church. We have a Sony VAIO AR520 powerhouse media laptop with Windows Vista. It was originally hooked up through the corresponding HDMI port to our VPL-AW15 Sony Projector but sony has replaced the port once and it quit again. We switched to the vga hookup but because it is analog and not digital, it won't allow us to play our church videos. We bought a UGA adapter usb 2. When we hook up the HDMI adapter and change the VPL-AW15 Sony projector back to the hdmi screen, the projector doesn't talk to the laptop and switch the NVIDIA to a dual screen. I am not able to manually switch it to a dual screen, thus we have no picture on the projector. Before the HDMI port went bad, all we had to do was turn on the projector first and then switch on the laptop and it automatically detected the dual setting and brought up the dual screen for our media shout programming. I have exhausted all the things I know to try so if anyone has ideas please I can use the help. Thanks in advance and God Bless!

Hi all,
I guess I am kind of desperate at 1:45 am haha...
I just got my XPS 13 9350 and it is awesome. I ordered the DA200 USB-C to USB3/RJ45/VGA/HDMI adpater. Unfortunately I am experiencing a few problems with the device. They are listed below:
1) plugging in, computer does not recognize the device. If I right-click and uninstall in Device Manager and do a "scan for new hardware", it works again - but not for long.
2) The device and the Realtek gigabit portion connect and reconnect every second in device manager and that is annoying.
3) Disabling the wireless card/connection seems to actually help the device connect and it works at 100%. ONLY when the wireless card is disconnected.

Basically, windows is having a real hard time keeping this adapter connected...almost like it can't recognize it. I tried installing the device drivers for the adapter - nothing. I updated all the thunderbolt firmware from Dell (including chipset) and the BIOS...nothing. Same thing. If you do a google search, there are a few threads on this exact problem. There is a nice sized one on Reddit.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on? It is a real shame a beautifully designed and pricey adapter is not working with a Dell computer.

Thanks, AJ
