I recently got my hands on a Samsung 4k Smart TV, and I hooked it up as another monitor for my setup. Last night I discovered that the monitor would “ignore” HDMI input when I opened Netflix. The screen space is still acknowledged by windows because I can move windows in and out of it. I can also see the screen in display settings.
YouTube works fine, but I just discovered today that the signal ignoring also happens when I try to open Spotify. It doesn’t happen until I’m logged into these services (about to consume some content), and it only happens on Windows 10. It does not happen on my Ubuntu installation.
A little bit about my setup:
I’m running the TV via HDMI from my 980 ti with another monitor on DP. I have 2 other monitors using my Intel integrated graphics from the motherboard slots (DVI and HDMI).
I feel a little strange creating a post soliciting help as I am new to the forums, but any google searching for “samsung tv” and “netflix/spotify” yields results about the TVs built in smart apps, and this is the only community who I feel might have an answer.
Is there some tricky HDCP bs going on here? Is there anything I can do?
