@Jamez
My DP to HDMI cable (no converter) does already work with the new driver video only.
It works fine on the old driver video and sound.
My question is what is the difference between a DP-HDMI cable and a converter?
Surely they both do the same thing ie allow the HDMI signal to pass out of the DP port.
And surely the new driver is not supplying the audio correctly.
My guess is that NVIDIA need to have a look at this as well?

@des519,

DP -> HDMI converter / cable should be doing the same as you mentioned. As for the drivers one, I am unable to comment if Nvidia would need to look into this however engineering would need a sample of converter / cable in order to raise this issue to a higher level.

If you are willing to volunteer, I can contact engineering from the EU region to arrange some shipment with you.

@JameZ,

Really very nice & accountable work you doing here James. Listening to costumer's voice and relaying it to departments in-charge. This is the real difference between Lenovo and all other brands. Lenovo cares about its image & does work to keep it intact.

I really wish someone could do the same for the T400s/T410s costumers too. They are all having the palmrests cracking due to fatigue initiating from around the screw-holders on the inner side. Obviously this is so very damaging for the very successful 'slim' Thinkpad line. Logic says that if the cost of calling-in all failure exhibiting machines for replacing them with a re-engineerd palmrest (with a higher elastic material) would be un-affordable (e.g. antenna problem on iPhone 4) then solution would be to run through CS worldwide not to resist customers calling-in with the problem. And ship them a new palmrest whether they are in or out of warranty up until EOL of the product.

It will in any case at least help if anyone of you guys, would post a comment on the thread.

I have this one (follow link) - video only works with the newest driver (8.17.12.5738), no sound.

Hi alee5789,

Does the cable work with the older version of the GPU driver? If so, is it possible to borrow it for engineering to test it out?

Thanks
James

This is an inexpensive cable...doesn't Lenovo have any budget for this?

I can't get an older version of the GPU driver working on my computer successfully....but while trying to install it I did at one time see my monitor show up in Sound control panel. I suspect the cable will work with an older driver.

Hi alee5789,

Engineering does not practice buying accessories that is non Lenovo recommended. Do try your cable with the older version of the driver and see if it works.
