Hello. My name is***** will be helping you with your question today. Please give me a moment to review your question and respond.

Ask Your Own TV Question

OK, so you would like to connect your Lenovo laptop to your Samsung TV is that correct?

Ask Your Own TV Question

and you have both HDMI connections on your TV busy with some other device?

Ask Your Own TV Question

According to Samsung your TV has 2 working HDMI ports on your TV and if your lenovo laptop just have a display port I could give you a link with the proper adapter you could use with your TV, but first I need the model number of your Lenovo Laptop to confirm.

Ask Your Own TV Question

I have another step for you to follow once you get me the model number of your Lenovo laptop.....so please let me know when ready.

Lenovo thinkpad t430

OK, while I find the proper adapter that goes with that laptop, can you please plug in your Cable Box onto THAT other HDMI port to confirm if you get audio and video just like the other one you are currently using........please update me with the findings.

Can't it is not totally connected yet, want to make sure all cables are attached before hanging it up.

OK, do you have any other HDMI device such as a DVD player in order to test that second HDMI port?

No but tv is brand new never been used
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Remember it does have a mini display port

OK, so now let me explain to you how the picture diagram works.........if you look at the HDMI port they are both suggesting something that could be plugged into them......(STB and DVI) BUT NOT necessarily those.......so if the TV is new ANY HDMI device would work including anything coming from the computer through the right adapter......and I found the adapter let me know when ready so I can send you a link.

Okay
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Wait adapter for what

OK this is the adapter, can you please confirm if that looks like something that could go into your laptop's display port?

Ask Your Own TV Question

based on your TV, I don't see a mini display port on the back of it...so you are going to need an adapter to use with HDMI.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No

NO what? that's not the right adapter? or am I wrong about your TV having a Mini Display Port?

Ask Your Own TV Question

So did you check the link I sent you?

that's the right cable for it that makes the mini display port into FULL HDMI.
