    I usually use my pi on 1 tv but I took it to my buddies and it did not detect video. I brought it home and it worked fine. I tried it on y downstairs tv and it does not detect video. So I went into /boot/config.txt and added:

    config_hdmi_boost=4
    hdmi_force_hotplug=1
    hdmi_drive=2

    Still nothing on basement TV. Works fine upstairs.

    Changed it to:
    config_hdmi_boost=7

    Still nothing. I tried a different card and same issue so I am looking for any advice. Thanks for the help.

    You may want to try forcing a particular resolution by using HDMI_GROUP and HDMI_MODE. It’s kind of a shot in the dark, though.
