I assumed that these cables are plug and play so could there be another issue here? Is it possible my TV is not compatible? Are there settings that I need to change? Please help!
Also the HDMI cable is not faulty. I tested it with a Windows laptop that has a HDMI port in the laptop itself and the TV picks up the signal just fine.
