I used to use (depending on ports on the external device in the given venue) either miniDP to HDMI or miniDP to VGA adapter in order to connect to the external beamer/TV
About one month ago the first (to HDMI) just stopped to work. Bought new adapter – same thing. Tried different beamers/TVs – same thing. All of this while my old and worn out miniDP-VGA adapter works like a charm.
Does not work = NOTHING happens after connecting the external display via such adapter, as if there was nothing plugged into the miniDP.
I have just a single miniDP port so we are talking about SAME miniDP working with one type of converters and not working with the other. Can the miniDP port break… partially?
