• Patch Lady – another 1809 block in place

    Every feature release I have to poke and prod to get my Lenovo laptop that hooks into a display port that hooks into my TV to behave.

    It appears that 1809 would once again nail that sucker.  I need to check tonight and will report back.

    I would not be a happy camper.

    For now it’s blocked:

    • Windows Server, version 1809


    Microsoft has identified issues with certain, new Intel display drivers. Intel inadvertently released versions of its display driver (versions, to OEMs that accidentally turned on unsupported features in Windows.

    After updating to Windows 10, version 1809, audio playback from a monitor or television connected to a PC via HDMI, USB-C, or a DisplayPort may not function correctly on devices with these drivers.

    Workaround: To see if your device is affected and, if so, resolve the issue, see this Windows Forum post.

    Next Steps: Microsoft is working with Intel to expire these display drivers, including coordinating with OEMs, and will provide an update on the resolution in an upcoming release.

    Note:  This Intel display driver issue is different from the Intel Smart Sound Technology driver (version audio issue previously documented.
