Role of HDMI
HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is an all-digital connector capable of carrying high-definition video and several digital audio channels in one cable. HDMI delivers crystal clear digital audio and video via a single cable, thereby reducing the number of cables that are needed. HDMI enables you to connect various devices like the set top box, DVD players, HD monitors easily and efficiently. HDMI allows you to connect a large number of devices and it is a continuously evolving technology.
Sometimes you might not get any output in the external monitor or TV and troubleshooting shows that the ports are working fine. If such a situation arises, the problem is with the cable. As both video and audio are transmitted over the same cable and any small defect of the cable could result in either video or audio missing from the output, the HDMI cables are a very important component. In such case, replacing the wire should solve the problem.
If even after connecting the HDMI cables correctly, you do not receive any output in the screen, it is possible that the problem is either with the cable or the port. If you troubleshoot and find the cables to be good, it is possible that the port is faulty. In such situations there is very little that you can do.
