    Not sure if anyone had this issue or not?

    I picked up a Surface 2 the other day. Loving the tablet, except I found that when I connected it to my TV via a micro HDMI to HDMI cable I picked up on Amazon (blue rigger)
    I found that it did not work properly. An LG TV worked fine, but a Samsung did not detect the input. It turns out that this is because of the angle of the port, and the fact that the cable needs to be fully pushed home to work properly. I had no issues with the same TV and cable and a Tegra Note tablet, which also has a port at an angle, but on the surface it has to go much further in. Once I worked that out, it was a simple fix with a knife to trim some of the cable shrouding off on one side, allowing the cable to push home.

    ​Here is the cable after trimming a corner off:

    yep. Many of us have encountered that issue and used the same solution.
