How do I connect my T410/T510 with integrated/discrete graphic to LCD HD TV? Through DisplayPort or via HDMI to HDMI cable? What could be the perfect link?
My laptop can't seem to transport audio signals through the DisplayPort to get digital audio on a television through an HDMI adapter.
ThinkPad does not have HDMI port, thus you would have to use DisplayPort to connect to your TV. You can try the methods below:
Get a DisplayPort-to-HDMI cable with a DisplayPort connector at one end for your laptop, and an HDMI connector at the other end for your TV, OR
Get a regular HDMI-to-HDMI cable and a DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter to plug into your laptop.
To solve the audio issue, here's the tips from forum members:
Machine with discrete graphic card - just choose NVidia HD audio as playback device after connecting your display.
Machine with integrated graphic card - the trick is to go to Control Panel > Sound control panel > Right click on your TV > Select 'Set as Default Device'. Then you should start hearing audio out from the TV speakers, and the green sound volume meter beside the TV in the Sound Control Panel should start responding to the audio you're playing.
