But the digital sound is not coming from the TV With respect to kclawrence– I checked and he seems to be incorrect about the Dell having DisplayPort audio pass-through. I have owned many high-end notebooks for more than a decade and all of them have had some form of digital audio output since at least the year I tried using headphones and no sound at all comes from either the headphone jack or the speakers. However one thing remain true – if Lenovo don’t put effort on getting digital out aka SPDIF “on” the notebook it will forever loss me as customer.

What on earth were they thinking? In generalI feel that Lenovo try harder for audio solutions “AND” stop making victims by stating that displayport on W-series won’t have audio diaplayport.
I still believe this was a huge huge error in judgement on Lenovo’s part, and that six months with no explanation or resolution aside from false information is pretty unacceptable from a company that claims to be interested in selling high-end notebooks like the W series. Could you please post a link to exactly what you found, as what you have posted thus far does not seem to check out?

In my option, the situation will become worse if OEM Lenovo can’t provide positive reply before we customer check out all the fact.
Ars Legatus Legionis et Subscriptor. Thu Sep 24, 1: If I plug it in, the TV automatically changes the picture to the digital image, which looks great.
But the digital sound is not coming from the TV Thu Sep 24, 8: I’m probabily too busy for my work that make such suggestion. Somewhere between Marysville and Tumwater Registered: Fri Sep 25, 6: Using the “reasonable man” standard to answer such a question– the answer is clearly NO. I know what you’re talking about and I’m not persuing that USB-stuff anymore, see my previous follow up post.
No it doesn’t show it. Wed Sep 23, I asked a sales rep of Dellwhether the display port of the M outputs audio and he replied yes after further inquiry in his office.

It may also be necessary to restart your media player application to reflect the change.
Dell Latitude E6400
I have owned many high-end notebooks for more than a decade and all of them have had some form of s6400 audio output since at least the year If the Dell does carry audio it only lets us know what we already knew– there was never a technical reason why Lenovo decided to remove all digital audio capability from their top-shelf products the W series.
It’s almost as if it turns OFF analog audio entirely. I checked, and on their website the Dell series does not specify anyplace that their DisplayPort adapter supports digital audio passthrough with an HDMI adapter or by any other means.
