Yoga ... USB-C to HDMI

2020-09-19, 9:21 AM

Hello guys, just  a question for those of you who bought any adapter to connect the  notebook Yoga S740 (or I guess any other Lenovo) to an external TV. Do I have to buy the original Lenovo adapter or can I buy any spare converter on Amazon?

Thank you if you can help... 

 

This is the original one (a little expensive...)

A genuine Lenovo adapter will work of course. So will generic adapters.

 

I use a generic multipurpose hub that I bought on Amazon. It includes HDMI as well as Ethernet and several USB ports. This hub also supports USB-C Power Delivery (PD) so it is effectively a simple docking station. You can find several hubs like this on Amazon.

Thank you for your answer... I'm a bit concern in ordering a generic Converter because I'm not sure if all I need is just an "adapter (USB-C to HDMI) or a Converter/Adapter cable (like the Original Lenovo one) Is there any need of converting anything in the signal? I mean is it just a matter of adapting the 2 different plugs (Usb versus HDMI?

I just noticed now that the adapter you linked to goes from USB-C to Displayport. The title of your thread is USB-C to HDMI. The adapter you need depends on the port on the device you want to connect. Many external monitors have both Displayport and HDMI, but some have only one or the other.

 

As far as I know all such adapters have circuitry inside for converting the signal to the appropriate interface.

That would be my guess as well. All LED TVs have HDMI. Many external computer monitors have Displayport and sometimes also HDMI. So the adapter you linked to on Amazon will not work. You need something like Lenovo - Adattatore cavo adattatore USB C a HDMI 2.0B. This shows unavailable on the Amazon Italy site however it may be available on another Amazon store in the EU. Or you could get a generic USB-C to HDMI adapter.
