Correct USB Type-C to HDMI adapter for HP ENVY x360 - 13m-ag0001dx

HP ENVY x360 - 13m-ag0001dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I'd like some help to determine the correct adapter to connect my Envy on my TV. I need to know my Type-C specs

 

The ports for this notebook are listed as the following at HP's site:

External ports
1 USB 3.1 Type-C™ Gen 2 (Data Transfer up to 5 Gb/s, Power Delivery, DisplayPort™ 1.4, HP Sleep and Charge); 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (1 HP Sleep and Charge); 1 HDMI 2.0; 1 headphone/microphone combo

 

The issue is that this notebook doesn't have a HDMI 2.0 port, so I want to know if that's a mistake and HP meant that the Type-C port can output HDMI 2.0.

 

And in that case what adapter I need? I heard that some Envy notebooks require an adapter with DP Alt Mode since their Type-C port only output data in DisplayPort 1.4.

 

If my computer has HDMI 2.0 mode does that mean I can use a simple Type-C to HDMI port? Or anything that specifies Type-C to HDMI 2.0?

No, you can't use USB-C to connect to a monitor using HDMI. Its existing HDMI 2.0 is good for a 4K monitor with a HDMI 2.0 cable.

My computer doesn't have an HDMI port.

 

That's why I am confused, I think what HP meant is that the USB-C port supports data in HDMI 2.0 mode.

 

But I still need to know what adapter would work for my computer
