T500 HDMI Port

#1 Post by Fahmed7 » Mon Dec 03, 2018 9:07 pm

Hi guys,

I am attempting to find a way to add an HDMI port to my T500. I would like to connect it to an HDTV and output video AND audio to the TV. I know the displayport does not carry audio. Is there any way to get an HDMI port with this model? All the docking stations i'm finding that are compatible do not have HDMI...are there any docks that do that i'm not seeing? Thanks for the help.

Try an Expresscard to HDMI adapter.

It's overkill but a cheap eGPU will give you HDMI with Audio out, I did try this once, it was interesting.

I doubt the ability to output 1920x1080@60Hz, though...
