Also, from the item page:

Make sure this cable woks well, please check your laptops / desktops manual to make sure that your VGA card has TV output function capability through VGA.


Does the T400 support TV-Out through VGA? Mine is with discrete graphics.

Will I be able to hook it into my old Philips TV (has a scart input) ?

As far as I know, none of the old or new Thinkpads supports TV out through VGA.

So basically, the T400 doesn't have TV-Out, no S-Video, no DVI, nor HDMI, no DisplayPort either... and the only way to display something on a TV is through a converter ... an extra $50.
And buying the mini dock for $150 doesn't solve the problem. Shame at Lenovo. I mean even all the basic notebooks on the market have at least S-Video. Shouldn't a business notebook have more options for external displays? Stuck with the VGA. And if you need DVI just bring your docking station. Smart.
Really disappointed. Even my old Thinkpad 600E had TV-Out.

Shame on a lot of laptop providers then.

You need to get out more.
