    I picked up a micro to standard HDMI cable today @ Best Buy to use my 2520 to run a presentation Tuesday. Can't make it detect any external display. Tried my HDMI monitor and my TV, no dice. Nokia's online chat was "reboot" "try a different cable" not really much help. I tried powering off/on both monitors and the tablet, both while they were connected and separately... no dice.

    Any ideas? I DREAD another trip to Best Buy after everyone is off work

    No issues here, I bought a micro hdmi to full size hdmi cable and have used it a few times without issue.

    I have the TV on and set to the proper input, plug in the cable to both devices and the image pops up. I didn't experience any issues like you have.

    interesting. I went back to BB today, and tested on their monitor(s) with my cable and another one from the shelf, same issues. I went to Verizon and tried my tablet and their display tablet to one of their monitors, couldn't get anything out of either one of them. I'm going to contact Nokia (again) and see. Is the cable you have thick like a normal HDMI cable or is it one of the thinner ones? I'm wondering if the 2520 doesn't like the thinner cable, or it has something to do with the DRM scheme

    Maybe you need to make a change in the display setting?. I know on my laptops when I plug in a display, I have to tell it to display on the external display. Try going into settings from the charm bar, and then into change PC settings. From there go into Display. Maybe there you can find an option to choose the external display.

    After trying 3 different cables I found one that worked. Not sure what the difference is/was (guessing some form of DRM not allowing the HDMI signal to pass properly)

    I'd suggest specifying which cable worked here in the forum and if you know the names of the cables that did not work tell us that as well.....

    The ones that did not work were Rocketfish (from Best Buy) The one that actually did work was from Staples. It was on a clearance shelf, grabbed it just to test

    I had this one already to plug into my PC to share to my TV so I tried it on my 2520. It works flawlessly. You do not need to tell it about the display, it will see it and mirror auto.

    Belkin AV10120-06 HDMI to Micro HDMI M/M Cable, 6': Computers : Walmart.com

    You will need to change your power options on the tablet to never turn off display as when the tablet display turns off, it stops transmitting over the cable also.

    Interesting. I just got a new tv and 2520. My problem is sometimes the image and then other times the sound. So when it does play the movie it won't play sound. I found this to be true for some apps in particular like Metrotube. Netflix is fine for the most part.

    What cable did you buy? Maybe that's my problem. I hope they get on this. I don't want Nokia to get a bad name.

    Ok so my cable works great. It must have been a problem with my inlaws' setup. I tested at home tonight and my cable from Amazon works perfectly!

    So I'm having a problem with my audio input on my Nokia products (both my 2520 and 920). When I plug in an ear piece or speakers I only get sound from one speaker. Has anybody here experienced this? Fixes?

    Do you guys get 5.1 audio when you connect your hdmi cable or is it just 2 channel? My receiver shows that the input source is 2 channel pcm whenever I connect my hdmi cable.

    Thanks! I'm trying out another hdmi cable tomorrow. Maybe it is the adapter that I bought (Amazon.com: Cable Matters Gold Plated HDMI (Type A) Female to Micro HDMI (Type D) Male Adapter: Electronics) that doesn't work with the 2520.

    Just general info; Win+P is the keyboard shortcut for the HDMI output settings.
    Also, sometimes I must manually switch audio output on my Surface 2 (control panel/sounds) to HDMI
    And the cheapie micro HDMI cable I bought had to be cut at an angle on the plastic to fit the Surface 2's beveled edge. Not sure if this is necessary on the 2520.

    Still no surround sound...

    Download Dolby Digital Plus Demos
    I bought the 9to5 hdmi cable (also mentioned by nokia phone support) from this thread on amazon (same result as with the other adapter):

    Miracast (http://forums.windowscentral.com/nok...-no-sound.html)
    I tried Netgear Push2TV (PTV3000) and Actiontec ScreenBeamPro:

    I also went to BestBuy and tried it there. Same result...
    I also tried a system reset and still no surround.
    What I want is something like this:
    wp_20140527_001-copy.jpg

    My receiver can do surround. I can do it with my AppleTV, BluRay Player, and Laptop via HDMI. My laptop also shows alot more channels and encoded formats on the sound setup window when connected to the receiver as well.
    What am I doing wrong? How do the sound options look like on your devices?
