I have a ThinkCentre M73. I bought a hdmi to displayport adapter. Connected it to my Samsung TV and nothing is showing. Not even a signal. Blank screen. I have installed the lenovo solution centre and the companion and installed the latest drivers. Still nothing works. How do I get this to work?
Mod: edited the Subject ine to clarify the system model

One end is male and the other female. The female end accepts a male hdmi and the male end is displayport. What do you mean by active or passive converter? On Amazon this is what it looks like:

When I use the vga to hook a dell monitor things work fine. The monitor shows the desktop and the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel shows the dell monitor. There are only 2 displays, the dell monitor and the Digital Display Tinyinone 23. There is no Samsung TV showing. Any other ideas?

The H81 Chipset on the M73 is limited to 2 displays. One VGA and one DP. Doesn't the tinyinone take the one DP? If you lose the tinyinone, does the TV display?

Please follow the trail. My DP is not working with my Samsung TV. I am using a passive hdmi to dp adapter. I believe the user asked me to hook up the vga to see if it could somehow help with the troubleshooting.

My apologies. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding what you have connected, and how a Tinyinone works.

My tinyinone works fine. It's great. However I decided to install Kodi on it and now I want to view the Kodi on my TV via the Tiny. So I want to run the Kodi on the pc and project the screen to my tv. My Samsung TV only has hdmi ports. The Tiny only has a vga and displayport, among others but my TV only has hdmi so I bought a displayport to hdmi adapter hoping to project the Kodi using that. But all I get on my TV is a blank screen, no signal. The default blank screen that tells you no signal and to check your source.
That's why I am here looking for help.
