Recommended Method to Use X200Tablet as a DVR

What are the current options for hooking up my x200 tablet to a HD 1080p LCD television?  I have a 950Q HD TV tuner via the USB that works wonderfully.  I plan to use Windows Media Center as the DVR.  How to get a 1080P signal from the laptop to the television is a mystery to me.

Re: Recommended Method to Use X200Tablet as a DVR

you could try to get a Lenovo usb2dvi converter and stream the video signal that way or get a ultrabase which has a displayport (you would require a displayport to dvi converter).

Re: Recommended Method to Use X200Tablet as a DVR

I use the ultrabase and displayport->hdmi, hdmi->dvi converters to hook my tablet up to my desktop LCD.

 

Perhaps something like http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10428&cs_id=1042801&p_id=4827&seq=1&for... could work for you?

Re: Recommended Method to Use X200Tablet as a DVR

perfect - thanks so much for your help.  I have the docking station and the DVI-D plug should work perfectly.

 

I'm planning to run a WinTV-950Q HD USB tuner through my x200t with windows 7 ultimate media center into a Samsung LED 55" TV.....I can't wait to see how it works.  thanks again.
