Hoping someone here can help me because I've been struggling with this issue all day.
I'm hooked up to my monitor using DVI with no issues.
When I try to connect my LG TV to my PC using the HDMI port, my TV can't recognize the HDMI port.
My PC however, CAN recognize the television ( including by name ). I can "use" the television as a screen, meaning I can drag windows there and even use it as "main desktop".
But I can't SEE any of that on the television since I can't switch to the HDMI input as it isn't recognized at all.
At the same time, my TV does recognize my motherboard's onboard HDMI port, but doesn't receive a signal from it. I can set my input to that HDMI port just fine though on my PC.
When I do that, and go to my screen settings on my PC, then duplicate screen, and SWITCH my HDMI cable to the AMD Radeon HDMI port, it suddenly DOES work. I get picture at least.
Problem is, when I change my TV input to normal, I can't switch it back to HDMI because it somehow loses recognition of the input.
I don't know what this means. But having to do a 3-4 step workaround including moving cables around, just to use my TV as a second monitor every time is annoying as hell.
Does anyone have a solution for this?
My Dell laptop hooked up to the TV works perfectly fine, no issues at all. So I somehow don't feel it's the TV that has the problem, hence why I am posting here.
