Can't see the xbox 360 through HDMi cable

I have been using the components cable for watching my console, but I want to watch it through HDMI now, because I want to record gameplays. The problem is that the console video signal don't appear in the tv through the hdmi cable. I don't have it connected with the component cable anymore since you can not have both cables at the same time due to the size of the components cable, so I have the console connected to tv only with the hdmi cable, abd it should be enough to see the xbox signal, isn't it? I have to do something more? Why could be this happening?

Hi, it may be worth resetting the display settings on the Xbox.


Reset the console display settings

If the display problem is still not resolved, reset the display settings of your console. Here’s how:

  1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
  2. Turn off the console.
  3. Turn on the console.

    Note If you are using an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, turn on the console by using the Guide button on the controller. Make sure that you use the player 1 controller when you do this. The player 1 controller will have the upper-left light illuminated.

  4. As the console starts, on the controller, press and hold Y while pulling the right trigger. The display settings are reset to the default settings, and then the console automatically restarts.
