I want to watch movies through my computer on my TV.
I bought an HDMI cable to connect them.
My computer does detect the SONY TV on the Displays box, and it sets it up as a second monitor. However, there is nothing shown on the screen.
To figure out whether it was the TV, I tried connecting it with my roommate's Windows computer, and it worked fine.
I also found out this line about my graphics card via the
lspci | grep VGA command.
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
I should admit that I don't know what it means, but figured it's helpful since it came up in other posts.
Thank you for your help.
