Hi everyone!

I'm just wanna to say thank you for this guide! HDMI sound is awesome!

When I'm listening to music my receiver just displays ''PCM Multichannel'' (stereo), when I'm watching movies or concerts my receiver shows ''DTS 5.1'' or ''DD 5.1'', finally when I'm playing some games my receiver shows PCM MultiChannel and if game is supporting 5.1, then I have real 5.1 surround sound! The same for 7.1 etc.
I can't believe that this is so much better than any X-Fi sound card! (I just sold my X-FI Auzentech Prelude;-))

Thanks! thumb.gif

Ok, so I am having the craziest problem. I just reinstalled windows, and previously I was using this method to get audio over HDMI to my receiver by hooking up a dvi cable to a dvi-hdmi adapter to my screen. (My screen doesn't have DVI ports.) Upon reinstall, when using the DVI cable-HDMI adapter, windows shows only a second desktop, and I am unable to access anything to change it. It works fine if I use just an HDMI cable to my monitor, or HDMI to my receiver and another HDMI to my monitor, but the same if use DVI cable to HDMI adapter.

Is there any way I can fix this to get my old setup back? I am sure it is just something stupid I am forgetting about.

The only solution I can think of would be to use optical via the motherboard, or to buy some expensive sound card.

When i do DVI from GPU TO monitor, and HDMI to my rx467 receiver and set me screen like yours was

I'm having the same issue. I'm pretty sure the GPU is rendering the separate non-existent desktop(receiver). Really getting on my nerves mad.gif Anyone have any ideas to fix this besides having to buy an hdmi sound card...

Dang, didn't know anyone responded, I really dislike this new CP.

How do you have your receiver set as for the "monitor"? I have it set to just clone one of my monitors and I have never had an issue.

Hello, I just purchased a Denon AV receiver.
I connected it via HDMI to my computer.
However, there was a message that popped up, and without reading, I clicked OK.
Now, whenever my receiver is on and is connected to my computer, my screen goes blank.
I have tried reinstalling the Intel HD Graphics 4000 drivers (the motherboard graphics driver), however, I still get the same problem.
If I disable the driver, the HDMI port gets disabled, and my screen will not go blank but the receiver also wont get recognized. Any solutions?

Most motherboards have a coaxal output, or even a optical output correct? So why go through the hassle of using your video card to pipe the sound out, via HDMI when you can simply get a optical cable and hook it directly to your receiver (assuming it has digital inputs)
By going this route you avoid any issues you might run in to if your card doesnt play nice with the receiver?
@ OP:
Your motherboard and receiver both have optical connections. Why not use that if you just want the audio in to the receiver?

Because the motherboard have to has Dolbe DTS Connect or Dolby Digital Live to pass 5.1 **GAMES** through the Toslink. How is sound quality improved by using the HDMI over analog, which is (uncompressed?) and doesn't need further decoding.

I guess I'm a little confused. Can the videocard's HDMI output be used instead of the sound card's outputs for playing mp3's, games, videos ect.?
