Trouble with Nvidia HDMI audio and DVI & HDMI video

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a 660TI video card and a HDMI cable from it to a Yamaha RX-375 receiver, from the receiver to the monitor a BenQ V2400W another HDMI cable.
The audio is working as expected but the hdmi video looks like garbage, all washed out.
So I also have a DVI cable going from the video card to the monitor running at 1920x1200 and it looks great.
Everything runs fine this way unless I don't turn the receiver on, if I don't turn the rceiver on none of the desktop icons load or anything in the taskbar.
Turn it on and it;s good.
Another thing is when I choose hdmi for the monitor it will only do 768p and won't accept any PC resolutions.
I'm using Windows 8 and not sure what to try next.
Do I need to clone the video on a single monitor ?

Make sure your monitor is set as the primary display and the receiver as a clone instead of extended desktop.

Thanks,
Well I just tried as you suggested and it still doesn't work.
I cloned the DVI to HDMI and restrated, Then Windows 8 loads but all the icons are missing along with the taskbar stuff including the time,.
All I have to do is turn on the receiver and the monitor flashes black for one second and then back on with all the missing stuff.
I just don't like having to turn the receiver on no matter what, it just seems wrong. mad.gif

That's what the extended desktop would look like. It might be automatically saving different profiles for 2 monitors or one, if you turn the receiver off do the icons/taskbar change?

Yes, then the monitor blinks OFF for a second then back ON with the icons if I turned the receiver ON or Off with NO icons if I turn the receiver Off.

Try opening the nvidia control panel and then turn the receiver off. Use Windows key + arrow key right to move the window to your monitor and set it as the primary display with the receiver off.

OK Thanks again.
I got mad and went and bought a optical spidf cable and connected it up from the motherboard to receiver, it's prbably not as good as the hdmi but it sure is a lot less frustrating.
I will probably try it again when I get over this bout of hair pulling and head scratching.
