Displayport to HDMI with audio NEW Thread to get a proper Answer

2009-02-21, 23:12 PM

Let´s see if this one gets closed , moved , deleted or tagged with "solved" although it is not.. 


This new thread is opened to get a answer on the question that was asked here but never answered properly: http://forums.lenovo.com/lnv/board/message?board.id=W_ThinkPads&thread.id=1309 


@Lenovo, it should not be that complicated to check with your DEVs that put the W500 together and wrote the Specs and so on...

Do we need a support incident opened at your end to get a answer? if yes , please let me know and I will do that. 

 Erik , you as moderator did good job in researching the issue and posting your findings but seriously this has to come via Lenovo directly on the website or from official channels (after investigating it properly of course).


kclawrence, did a excellent job by researching it on his side and could at least show us that it is possible to get audio working over the displayport.  


Don’t get me wrong, I am not blaming anyone at this point but accept me as a customer who would like to get a proper answer , we bought 10 of those laptops in my department , so you can at least make the picture of how bad it looks on our side...

duplicating a thread simply serves as a way of splitting the discussion which does not help anyone. As you well know, as you have linked to it, there is already a discussion on this subject.


The OP marked the discussion as solved as is their right, (more than two months before you joined this forum). The OP can unmark the thread as solved if they wish to do so.


Please do not duplicate threads, it splits the discussion.


Thread locked.
