We had been gone for the weekend and left the TV on fir our cats. We came home and there is No volume on the TV. Just wondering if the TV should be on HDMI1 OR HDMI2...
Not sure if something may have happened to the box

Have you tried to disconnect and reconnect the Box to the TV?
The number of port is irrelevant.

Have you switched the source by pressing the "Source" button on TV remote?
Customer Reply
I do not see a "source" button

Do you see a button with a square and the arrow pointing towards/inwards that square.
Please note that it should be a TV remote.

Check the integrity of the cable itself.

How do I do that ?

Oliver Maslou Tech Expert & Writer
Check if the cable does not have visible damage.
Also, if you have, try to check it with another cable.

I did not see any damage to the cable.. I will have to retrieve another piece of cable.

Could it be possible that it is the TV? When I raise the volume, I do hear static in the speaker.
Is the input setting supposed to be on HDMI1 ?
Oliver Maslou
Oliver Maslou Tech Expert & Writer
The input doesn't matter, the TV should recognize the connected box on any port.
Have you checked d the volume on the box itself?
Customer Reply
I do not see a volume control on this box
Only a power button on top
