It can be. Considering everything you tested so far I would say it wouldn't hurt to try is with real monitor. Once Windows is installed it does not matter what display you use but at first boots it can be tricky.
TVs should work with basic display protocols. Different being legacy boot with uefi cards that Windows need boot first. Wouldn't hurt trying a monitor though. I just find it odd, gpus sporting hdmi long ago rarely had handshake issues if ever with TVs.

I’ll update on that when I can get a monitor. I’ll keep trying anything in the meantime too.

I took my PC to a professional and it was determined that the CPU is bad. Guess I’ll just have to warranty it. What are the chances of it arriving dead??

Bought a new CPU that should be compatible according to PCPartpicker, (AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core) installed it, same result. I’m not even sure what to do with this aside from just throw this away and buy a pre-built one at this point.
