DVI for T400

2008-10-16, 3:08 AM
T400 does not come with DVI (T500 does). If I want to connect the T400 to my home theater HDTV with a digital signal, what are the alternatives? Is the advance mini dock a good solution, beside to be oblige, I guess, to power it up near the TV.

wjli2, I will be getting the switchable graphic card. Should I understand that it will make a difference if using the integrated or dedicated graphic card for the signal to DVI, considering a HDTV? I was not aware that such converter device existed! Is a USB2HDMI also available somewhere? My HDTV has HDMI ports, but no DVI. Unless I add a second converter from DVI to HDMI to the previous one (I don't like the idea of putting too much converter in series).

You can get a DVI->HDMI cable, but you would need external sound source input.
