Thinkpad T460 compatibility with ThinkVision M14 monitor

2020-02-10, 3:36 AM

Can the ThinkVision M14 be used with a Thinkpad T460 (which only has USB-A ports). The Asus Zenscreen uses a hybrid signal solution for compatibility with USB Type-C and Type-A. Does the M14 have something similar to allow it to be connected using a USB-C to USB-A cable?

M14'  Tech Specs :   2 x USB-C (DP1.2 Alt Mode)

 

so, all you need is an  USB-C to  miniDP (DisplayPort)  cable.

 

Update: in this case you'll need to connect an additional USB-C  AC adapter.

My first post from February is wrong.  DP alt. modes are usually defined to connect USB-C source (i.e. laptop/gfx card)   to DP sink ( display) devices. 

It's very unlikely,  that you can connect an USB-C display to a DP source. At least using just  a simple passive  DP to USB-C cable.

 

Saying that, there is still a small chance to get this working. But it's highly dependent on the display device.

There is a quite expensive cable available supporting a bi-directional feature. I guess cable has an adapter in one of the plugs.

There is also  this  Delock DisplayPort to USB-C adapter https://www.delock.com/produkte/G_63928/technische_details.html?setLanguage=en
