T520 Display Port to HDMI on Vizio M220VA provides intermittent blank screen

I have a Vizio M220VA tv to which I connect my T20 via the display Port. I never get a screen showing on the TV, but the laptop screen oscillates between a black/blank screen and the normal desktop. I have verified the T520 works when hooked to a different TV and that the TV works when hooked to a different laptop. 

My graphics adapter shows as a " Intel HD Graphic Family.

Hi drussel,

Just a few questions to help us understand the situation better:

 

1. The other laptop you mentioned, is it also connected to the TV via displayport?

2. Are all your video/display drivers on the T520 the most up to date ones?

 

This may help others or myself in figuring out a possible solution.

Yes, the second laptop does connect via the display port. And yes I have updated the drivers. And the display port adapter/converter and HDMI cable was the same on both.

No mention of resolution setting you're pushing out to the DP. Scale it down to a lower level or at least until there is video. It may be exceeding the input spec's for the TV.

When all else is verified what ever is left must be the problem !!!
