The closest thing to an HDMI port on the Series 3 Ultrabase is the Displayport++ port, which only needs a passive DP-to-HDMI dongle. It will work up to 1920x1200 IIRC.

Mini-Dock Series 3: one goes to the DisplayPort, one to the DVI
Mini-Dock Plus Series 3: one goes to first DP/DVI, one goes to the second DP/DVI
Ultrabase Series 3: one goes to the DisplayPort, one unused.
So on the Mini-Docks, there is nothing that can be done - both signals are already in use; on the Ultrabase, one could tap into the unused pins of the second DisplayPort signal, and solder a proper port somewhere, which could be DP or DVI/HDMI (with a built-in passive dongle).

This is the one that I bought that works: Monoprice DisplayPort Male to HDMI Female Adapter
I will admit I am not crazy about the adapter sticking out the side of the X220, but it works. It would be preferable to have an actual Display Port to HDMI adapter cable.
I imagine the above adapter would probably work with the Display Port on the Ultrabase Series 3. And although I have the Ultrabase Series 3 for my X220, I have not tried using the Display Port on it.
