T420s - 4174-FM9 - Display port Connector

2012-10-23, 7:27 AM

When connecting a Sony tv set via the Display Port Connector; should the audio also be connected to the TV or just the display?

If you have the correct displayport to hdmi converter cable or adapter, then the displayport connection will pass audio to your tv's hdmi port.

No, i mean the Displayport to HDMI should also pass the audio through the same cable.

In the Windows sound control panel what is your current main audio setting, is your hdmi sound connection listed as one of the option?

When opening the Sound in the control panel and look in tab play, I have Conexant pointing to speaker. No HDMI.

You need something that supports audio and video:

Also make sure your hdmi cable supports both.  The cheaper ones are video only.

According to my dealer not all display port connector ports supports audio. I don't know if this port on my T420s does?
