I have searched the forum and it seem several folks are having trouble connecting their T510 to a TV. Using a Display Port to HDMI adapter, some people are having full success, others are getting video but no audio, and others are not getting audio or video.
Any thoughts on how to at least get video? Would this work:
The description says, " While DisplayPort connectors are capable of passing an HDMI signal, DisplayPort and HDMI signals are basically different and not compatible with each other. In order for this cable to function properly, you must have a DisplayPort source device capable of producing and passing out an HDMI signal through the DisplayPort jack.
Any recommendations for an inexpensive, working adapter cable would be appreciated. One poster said the Dell adapter was working, see http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Cables/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=19&sku=330-1271#O... .
Is there a difference between a cable with a Display Port connector on one side and an HDMI connnector on the other and an "adapter" that has some kind of conversion circuitry inside?

that's a tough question and I too do not have an answer for you. my advice, get in contact with those who use a Display Port to HDMI adapter with their T510 that works.
Check with them on which adapter that they use as well as what settings they place on their T510 for it to work.
