TV's not recognizing HDMI connection from PC
I connected my pc to my TV via hdmi port on my pc to the TV's only available port, which is on its DIRECTV box, but o connection or display! what do I doo?
The HDMI cable must be plugged directly into the TV. You wrote "I connected my pc to my TV via hdmi port on my pc to the TV's only available port, which is on its DIRECTV box"
If I'm not misunderstanding this, you plugged the HDMI cable not into the TV but into your satellite set-top box which is connected to a TV. This won't work.
The port on the Sate-lite box would be to plug the sate-lite box into the TV through HDMI. This would be the only reason that it would be on the Sate-lite box. For instance if you had a monitor with HDMI you could plug your Sate-lite box into your monitor and you would be able to watch Sate-lite television on your monitor
