Yoga 900 - no HDMI out? How to connect to TV port?

2015-11-06, 22:04 PM

I am looking for a new laptop.   Considering the Yoga 900.  One of the things I do a LOT is connect my laptop HDMI out to the HDMI in port on my tv.  In fact, I have a 15ft HDMI cable that I leave plugged in to a HDMI port on my tv.  WHen we want to watch something online, I just plug the cable in and off we go. 

 

I don't see any kind of HDMI out port on the Yoga 900.  How would I make this connection to my television?

 

 

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome,

 

The base spec says this:  optional HDMI-out (via USB 3.0 Type-C to HDMI adapter) 

 

I don't have any way to test one of those but The Google says they are availble.  Here's one examplehttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00X4S5C7G?gclid=CIrih6vq_MgCFY9bfgodjqILqw

In fact, i'm a little bit disapointed.. I bougth the Yoga 900 too, after reading i'll be able to plug a screen with USB type C adapter, but... It was soooo hard to find an adapter (only the Apple worked) and... The quality is horrible..

 

I'll contact lenovo next week to have explainations about this point.

There are at least two (not Apple) reported as working in this thread:

Unable to find them in shops (France). The Aukey one did not work for me. (unable to install drivers : https://www.amazon.fr/review/R1X3R9NB865QA9/ref=pe_1636431_66412821_cm_rv_eml_rv0_rv)

 

People are talking about TV connection. I'm talking about second computer screen. icons are aliased & edged. It's horrible.

 

Do you think the quality can be better with this one ?

If you have a solution.. Cause i spent 89€ (~$100) to buy an adapter wich have poor video quality, i'm disgusted. 

 

A shame when we buy $1800 computers... If Lenovo don't give me a solution, i'll take back my money and buy a dell XPS 15.

I haven't tried the Lenovo adapter so I can't comment on that.

 

I've only tested mine with a TV but will try to set up an external monitor to try.

 

What resolution is your external monitor?

I just did a quick test with the adapter I linked in that other thread and my Acer 1920x1280 23 inch monitor.

 

It looks  pretty good to me.  Better as an extended desktop so the monitors can run with separate scaling than cloned.
