    mac mini late 2014 HDMI issue
    hello,

    not sure if anybody is having same issue as I do - I bought Mac Mini Late 2014 which I am unable to connect to my monitor/TV via HDMI cable, it's simply not working.
    I tried convertors, HDMI 1.4, 2.0, etc. and still nothing ... I am able to connect it through miniDP, so I can work with that, I am just really disappointed why it's not working via HDMI.
    Apple diagnostics shows no errors, anything I could try before I will give up on HDMI connection ?

    I run there Yosemite, High Sierra and even Mojave with no luck. Not sure what that Iris graphics is doing with ports then :/

    Thanks a lot.

    Have you tried different settings on the television? There is no reason the signal wouldn’t be coming out of the Mac mini.

    Have you tested the HDMI cord, and it works with other TVs and the same TV with a different input?

    The only other thing I can think of is resetting the NVRAM, https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204063, and the SMC, https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295.

    I tested several HDMI cords and they work with other devices I have ... SMC, PRAM, NVRAM - they were reset. I tested everything what I could find on internet to fix it - but maybe there is still something left ...
    a friend told me today that somebody tried a trick of re-directing sound through HDMI and managed to connect the picture through it to the TV/monitor as well ... will try and post results later ...
