HDMI -Micro USB Cable

Would like to know if anybody purchased HDMI-Micro B USB cable and if it worked with HD TV.

 

Thanks

It's not an HDMI-Micro USB cable, it's an HDMI-MicroHDMI Cable.

 

I purchased one at a local cellphone store, and it worked fine, though the connection was a bit touchy.

No, Clear_Blue_Lou is correct, that is a micro HDMI output connector on the bottom edge of the K1, and it has nothing to do with USB.  Here is the spec sheet: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/ww/pdf/ideapad_tablet_k1_datasheet.pdf

 

I think what he means by "touchy" is that several people have reported that the sturdiness of the connection is not all that great, and it tends to come loose.

 

UPDATE: I just realized the confusion might have been because the original poster forgot to specify K1 or A1 when he started this thread, but since only the K1 has the HDMI output, Clear_Blue_Lou and I were assuming K1.  It is true that the A1 has a miniUSB connector.

Yes, by "touchy", I meant that the HDMI cable fits a little too loose, and moving the K1 around will interrupt the connection to a TV.

 

PJK in Dublin, were you asking about the A1 tablet? I think that has a micro (or mini) USB port, but no HDMI output. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The A1 does not have the ability to play video to HDMI even if you could find a microUSB to HDMI cable.
