Ok so I decided to save up and buy the Archos Gamepad. I bought it from Amazon and it was brand new. Everything seems great so far apart from the fact that when I plug the mini HDMI cable into the device I get nothing on my TV screen. I also tried it on my HD monitor and nothing.
I decided to try it through an HDMI splitter and when I plug the cable in the light on the splitter comes on so it's recognizing the cable. I've tried updating to the latest software, I've tried every resolution on the device (my TV is true HD anyway), I've tried resetting to default settings through the recovery menu and at this point I'm getting pretty fed up.
So before it goes back to Archos for a replacement I'd like to ask the experts first.
Maybe I've bought the wrong type of cable. Here's the one that I bought :http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280653113645?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
Is this the correct one or have I made a boo boo? And if so could you please tell which which cable it is I need.
All the best and thanks in advance guys.
