    TV (Samsung) not recognized as 2nd Display




      I've tried looking for an answer to my question in the other discussions but couldn't find it - hopefully someone can help me out.



      I recently bought a new HDMI cable to connect my desktop computer to my Samsung television to occasionally use it as a second screen (movies, youtube, streams, etc.).

      I plugged the cable straight into my graphic card's (R9 200 Series) HDMI port and connected it to an HDMI port on my television.



      I cannot get my TV to recognize my graphics card. I tried multiple HDMI ports on the TV and it keeps stating 'no source available'.

      I tested if the HDMI-cable OR my TV HDMI-ports were broken but this is not the case - if I connect my laptop instead, it duplicates the screen to the TV perfectly.


      If I press Windows + P; either Duplicating, Extending, etc. does not no the trick.

      Then I continued in the Catalyst Control Center and activated the Samsung TV; as seen in the screenshot below - and I set it to Duplicate (not Extend).



      Still; nothing on my TV. Then I went to Display Settings in Windows 10 and noticed that both displays are recognized. The AMD Radeon Settings also show my Samsung TV. See below:



      I have replugged the cables multiple times and also rebooted both TV and PC in different sequences but I still cannot have my TV show anything.

      What am I doing wrong; does anyone have an idea?


      Thanks so much,
