Windows does not support audio only HDMI. The receiver requires a video signal of some sort. It would be technically possible to just send it a black screen, but that possibility has not been manifest into a feature.
You either need to make a second screen or mirror your main screen. Both have minor drawbacks, but a lot of us just put up with it because HDMI surround sound is the way to go.
I think the main issue will be content. I think a couple games using the Frostbite engine may support Atmos, but I don't know what else does.
