Solved!

Laptop Multiple Monitors, DP++ with HDMI

HP Recommended
Omen 15-5012tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

TL,DR: Can I use the Mini DP++ output and the HDMI output simultaneously in "extend" mode?

QL,RA: I have an Omen 15-5012tx and want to connect two external monitors as "extended". These are basic office displays, and definitely nothing fancy. My HP has both a Mini DP++ port and a HDMI port for video output.

 

I was going to use a simple (cheap!) Mini DP to HDMI cable for one monitor, and a HDMI cable for the other. From the user manual, I couldn't confirm that this arrangement is possible. I then looked at Mini DP++ to dual HDMI splitters as a potential alternative, but they're really quite expensive. I appreciate they can offer much higher screen rates, but this is not an issue in my application.

 

I don't want to wait a week for a basic MDP to HDMI cable to arrive and find I can't use it in conjunction with the HDMI output. I also don't want to spend $100's on a DP++ splitter if it's not necessary. Can anyone assist with whether a single monitor on DP will work extended with another monitor on HDMI?

 

Thanks heaps, Steve

Anybody?

 

Does the HDMI port work "extended" with the Displayport port?

 

Cheers, Steve

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, After reading your post, I did go through the Product Specifications and found out that your computer supports both HDMI and Mini DisplayPort.
