ThinkPad T470p weird monitor issue

2017-07-28, 14:31 PM

Hi,

 

I have a quite strange monitor related issue with my beloved t470p. My two Dell monitors connected through DisplayPort interfaces of my docking station. Everything is fine, the picture is brilliant, so I have nothing to complain about except one thing. When I start watching Netflix on one of the monitors, that monitor turns off :)) Maybe this is something built in 'get back to work' feature, but I don't like it. It is no matter if I try win10 Netflix app, or start a movie in a browser, every time is the same. I suppose this is maybe related to the copy protection functions in the Intel driver, but I'm not sure. There is a newer driver available on Intel's website, but I cannot install this because we have a vendor customized version of the driver :)

 

Do you have any idea? Have you seen something similar before?

 

Thank you

Laszlo

Hi Lazlo

 

What about if you run video with other applications like VLC or the movies app included in Windows 10. Does it also gives you issues with your external monitors?


Which dock are you using?

 

Remember that you can always download the latest drivers with Lenovo Companion or you can download it manually from the support site of your model.

That's really weird. Now it is ok without updating anything... and it was never an issue with other than Netflix, so I think this is only for netflix... I still think it is somehow related to the copy protection which sometimes affects digital ports... anyway.... I hope it will stay as it is :)
