No Display! - Was working now turns from HDMI to DVI

Built a new computer, got into windows downloaded and updated everything. worked fine. Shipping it to a friend. Friend plugs it into tv via HDMI from HDMI port on gtx 1050 gpu. When he does this, the tv switches from HDMI (1 2 or 3) to DVI. We have tried reversing the cable, Tried turning everything off. etc. We even plugged in a PS4 via hdmi to the same slot. It worked. moved that same cable from the ps4 to the pc and it went straight to dvi again.

Please help. Thanks!

It is. and as soon as we plug in the cable to the pc it changes that hdmi setting to dvi

also note, that if its already plugged in and we manually change it to hdmi, as soon as we move the mouse it switches to dvi. also note, no picture during any of these times what so ever.

It's the TV's fault. See if there's any setting to disable automatic dection, or just use a different cable. As in, not HDMI. What model is the TV?

I figured and looking now. We were gonna try dvi but ironically the tv does not have dvi lol. The tv is a sanyo DP 42740.

Seems like that TV has a lot of issues with the HDMI. Try plugging into HDMI input 2 if you haven't already, but if that doesn't work good luck. :\
