This question isn't totally geared towards Apple TV, but it plays a role in the issue I am having. I was given a tv for free from someone at work. The picture had gone out on them when using HDMI. I figured I would take it home and see if there was anything I could do to salvage it. To my surprise when I connected my Apple TV it works perfectly, no issues whatsoever. When I plug in my DirecTV box or computer (same HDMI cable and input) I get green static. The tv is linked here: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/2010-led-tv-c8000-series Yes, its an older TV. I guess when it came out it was pretty high end. Just wondering if there is something that is causing this to work with the Apple TV, but seemingly nothing else.
