    RE : Mini Display Port adaptor to HDMI TV


    I bought and received a Mini Display Port to HDMI TV adaptor from Amazon.ca.
    I bought it because I need it to connect my Surface tablets to TV.

    Well I received it today and tried it.
    It works perfectly with my old Surface Pro1, but not on my Surface 3 ( it says No Signal on Surface 3 ).

    Does anyone have an idea why is that ?

    Details about the adaptor :

    excerpt from the link above :
    ..... supports computer systems including Win XP/Win 7/Vista/Win 8 (32/64bit) and above.

    Yes. I had read that plus many hours of googling.

    You see, the issue is .......... the mini display adaptor works in an older Surface Pro1 but not a newer Surface 3. Both devices have mini display port.

    If you have a second monitor or a second cable run though these troubleshooting steps:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...-second-screen
    Maybe something from the list may work with one monitor?
    Also check to see if the cable is display port certified:
