I have a Thinkpad Helix 2 (2nd. gen) with Ultrabook Pro Keyboard. There is a mini-DisplayPort output on the keyboard part, but I don't get any output from it. (The keyboard can be detached from the Helix/tablet part.) I tested it with two different miniDP-to-HDMI converter. (The converters worked with a W540 notebook.)

I don't get any changes in xrandr output, or in dmesg when I connect or disconnect the cables. I don't see any DisplayPort in xrandr output. The eDP1 is the internal screen.

I read here that, the miniDP output shows as HDMI2, but if I connect the miniDP-HDMI converter, the HDMI2 is in "disconnected" state also.

Do you have any idea why it is not working or what can I do?

Thank you, for your help.
