why does my hdtv lose signal when i load a game, but my monitor displays picture

i have it on duplicate display btw

this didn't give me an issue when i had one radeon card but now that i'm crossfiring it started doing this

i want the picture to be on either both monitor and tv or just tv if i have to choose one for gaming

Have you tried setting the TV as your main display when you want to play a game?

Swap the cords if you're lazy, like me

You could try Windows+P to switch displays.

Go to resolution settings to enable, disable, or make a display the main display. You can keep both plugged in and just switch which one you feed video to from your control panel.

Is your game running at a resolution/refresh rate the TV supports?

Swap the cords. I'm assuming they're both HDMI though
