Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 - WIDI does not work

2016-05-25, 11:26 AM

I recently bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 260 with Windows 10 Pro 64 bits.

 

I instaled Intel Wireless Display Software to see the desktop on a TV. The software works with the Samsung TV I have where I work, but it does work with the Samsung TV I have at home. The Samsung TV model I have is the UE55F6400. When I tried to connect, the connection works for a while, but after a time I receive the message "Video Data not compatible" ("Datos de Vídeo no compatibles" in Spanish).

 

Of course I instaled the newest drivers for the notebook and the last firmware of the TV.

 

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think that widi just doesn't work all that well.  Probably the most common receiver is the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter.  I tried using that device wirh several machines (Including the ThinkPad Yoga 260) with different versions of Intel chipsets and wjhat I have learned is that sometimes widi works and sometimes it doesn't.  I searched for your TV model on this forum and the only reference was some guy complaining that widi didn't work with his T540p.

microsoft has a version 2 of the widi adapter, it has worked flawlessly with my 260.  2 hotels/2 5 day classes, swapped them every day before/after class.  Not 1 issue connecting
