I bought a TV to hook up to my computer and I am having a very bizarre issue.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have two monitors and a TV hooked up to my graphics card.

 

My specs are as follows:

 

Main monitor is 1920x1080 144hz Acer

Secondary monitor is Hanns-G 1920x1080 60hz

TV is 1920x1080 60hz

 

My computer specs are:

i5 8600k

GTX 1080ti

16 GB Ram

SSD

 

The issue is that when I full screen a video on my TV, my secondary monitor and my TV will go black for a second. Then, my secondary monitor will come back on as normal but the TV will be full static. The only way to fix this is to either unplug and replug the TV, which only works some of the time, or to restart my computer , which always fixes it. This issue occurs roughly 30% of the time I full screen a video.

 

Things I have tried:

Multiple different browsers

Updating GPU drivers

Different HDMI ports

 

I have never experienced an issue quite like this before and I honestly don't know where to even go from here.

 

Save me!

Did you try different HDMI cables, maybe something's wrong with your cable, that's why

I haven't tried a different cable. I am currently using a brand new DisplayPort to HDMI cable (DisplayPort on my GPU and HDMI on my TV). I may try to order another one if all else fails.

Try an HDMI cable straight from your gpu to TV, you can prob find one for 10 bucks or less from a local store, or maybe Walmart

My GPU only has one HDMI port and I need it for my 2nd monitor as it's a cheaper monitor and is very limited on connection types..

 

It has like 3 displayport outputs though.

How are you configuring the tv, as a clone of the main desktop or as an extension of the main desktop?

As extension of main desktop usually works better, and you can just move the window of the movie player on that display and switch to full screen

It could be the HDMI cable not being HDMI standard 2.1.  If you're using an earlier standard. It could be the reason why it's doing that.  I had an issue like that and I had to buy a 14 ft HDMI cable that is HDMI standard 2.1.

The TV is an extension of my displays. I can drag things from my monitors to my TV.

I am having Amazon send me a replacement cable tomorrow and I'll try that and report back. I don't currently have an HDMI cable to reach my TV so I would need to get one to test that out. Which I will if I have to, if this replacement cable gives me the same issues. Thank you though.

It doesn't say 2.1 HDMI standard.  I bought mine from Ebay from a high end home theater company that came with 24/7 local tech support and talk to them before bought the cable.  And they told me that most newer TV's to PC's requires 2.1 standard. Any older standards are not going to work or might have issues.  So you might want to ask Amazon.com for more details about their cables.

I sincerely doubt that the HDMI version of the cable is affecting anything or it's the issue here.

1080p 60 Hz can be done with HDMI 1.3, probably even older versions. HDMI 2.0 was only needed for 4K.
