This is my first question so please pardon my mistakes. I use a Mid 2017 MacBook Pro with a HP V270 Monitor. The monitor connects fine using a USB-C to HDMI cable but the issue I'm having currently is that my monitor randomly goes off and then comes back on after few seconds. IT seems to be a connection issue but I'm not sure how to verify that but an odd that I noticed in the settings is that there isn't a picture on the monitor but my MacBook screen displays a picture. Please do not confuse the picture I'm referring to with the on the hardware screen. Hardware screen shows a picture but goes off randomly. The screen in the picture above remains black no matter how I tweaked the settings beside it. Also I'm currently running the Catalina beta but I do not think the issue is from the beta because I've seen other users experience same issues.
MacBook Pro Mid 2017. 4 USB-C Ports and I've connected with both my lid open and closed(using an app called InsomniaX). I'm also using a direct cable from my USB-C port to HDMI.
