Hi,

Have used the mini HDMI port for years with no problem to connect to TV - suddenly it's not be working. The TV recognises a connection (so different than if nothing plugged in at all), but gives a generic "check source/cable etc" message. It also doesn't work with a projector that it used to be fine with - so am concluding the problem is with tablet.

The cable definitely works (checked on other devices)

Unless the port has been physically damaged (it looks fine) I'm presuming must be driver issue.

Thing is, I cannot find the port listed under device manager (windows 10). Can anyone let me know what the name of the port should be in device manager, and if they can see it listed on their device?

Also, could someone point me to the correct driver for the mini HDMI port? I've downloaded and unzipped the driver pack on this forum, but have no idea which is the one I need...

Or if there's anything else that could be the problem.

Thanks!
