Using both the mini-Displayport and HDMI at the same time?

2017-02-01, 15:53 PM

Can the T460 support using BOTH the mini-Displayport and HDMI ports at the same time to drive two monitors for an extended desktop?

Solved! See the solution

Hi there,

Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

As I understand that you have query regarding Mini-DisplayPort & HDMI whether both will work simultaneously or not.

Assuming they're both outputs then it is very likely they'll function simultaneously and independently.

 

Source: Supports external digital monitor via HDMI or Mini DisplayPort; supports three independent displays;

Max resolution: 3840x2160@60Hz (DisplayPort via Mini DisplayPort cable); 1920x1080@60Hz (HDMI) 


I hope the above information helps.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

Regards,
Prabhansh

Hello,

 

I have the same question.  Just wondering if you were able to get the HDMI and mini display port to work at the same time.  My goal is to have two monitors connected to my Lenovo T460.

 

Thank you for any advice!

Emily

Yes, this did work for me.

I bough this item:

 

   item number=12742 : Mini DisplayPort 1.1 to HDMI® Adapter with Audio Support

 

from monoprice dot com  and was able to connect 2 HDMI cables (one in miniDP port and other in HDMI port) to my Lenovo T460 for driving 2 additional displays.  The displays I am using are older and only have DVI inputs, so I bought these HDMI-to-DVI adapters as well:

 

   item number=2029     DVI-D Single Link Male to HDMI® Female adapter 

 

In Windows dispaly settings, make sure you choose to "extend" desktop, not duplicate desktop.  If you only duplicate, then only the native HDMI output on your laptop will work with the connected monitors; the display connected to the  miniDP output just went blank when attempting to duplicate main display across both monitors.  Your results may vary.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi, it was working for a morning, after I disconnected all the cables to go to a meeting, on return I'm only able to get one at a time to work, if both are connected then both monitors go off.  Is there a setting that needs to be changed?
