have you enabled desktop on the second monitor (TV)?

right click on your desktop, screen resolution, detect monitors and then extend desktop.
 
After you have done the above (and set the second display resolution to the native resolution of the TV) if you still don't have a picture try switching the TV to the PC input and then boot the PC. Sometimes you have to do it this way to get the TV to handshake with the TV sometimes the PC has to be on before you switch to the input.
Try a different HDMI input and cable too.
