I have a Sony Bravia Flat Screen TV with 3 HDMI ports, 2 of which are in use. I wanted to connect an HDMI cable to that 3rd open HDMI port on the TV from one of the 2 available HDMI ports on my desktop Windows 10 PC. I even imagined that I would get the same image on the TV set as on my desktop monitor, but all I got was a “No Signal” message, and a black screen. I tried numerous permutations on the settings options of the TV set, but nothing worked. I downloaded the latest NVIDIA drivers, but again, nothing. I tried the display settings in Windows 10, but while it offered a “Detect” option for other displays, nothing happened when I clicked on the option button. I tried the settings from the NVIDIA software for outside displays, and got zilch results. I reviewed every video dealing with the topic on Youtube, but while all was fine on the videos, the settings they showed bore no relationship to the settings on my computer. I then tried to insert the HDMI cable to the port next to the PC monitor cable, presumably using the NVIDIA video card ports, but again, nothing. In fact, when both cables were plugged in, the PC monitor would not work, and the HDMI cable would not work alone either. I’ve tested the HDMI cable, and it’s good. I’ve tested the HDMI port on the TV, and it’s good. I have no way to test the NVDIA ports, but I can’t believe that they are at fault. I am beaten at every turn and I’m at a loss as to what to try next. Anyone?
