The Xbox 360 still works, eventually

Getting back to the raison d'ĂȘtre of this blog, I tried firing up my Xbox 360. (The older Pixel I was using for mobile gaming isn't reliably registering screen touches any more; some of it is probably just wear and tear, though I did get it caught in my tailgate and left out in the rain when I was back in New Jersey—the first dumb thing.) 

Anyway, the Xbox 360 turned on okay (once I figured out the power plug was loose), but the screen was blank; it wasn't showing any signal to the HDMI 2 input. I went down a rabbit hole diagnosing HDMI problems with Xboxes, when I finally realized that the reason why it wasn't showing up on HDMI 2 was because it was actually plugged into component video.
