I am currently using a Denon 1712 receiver hooked up to my computer via hdmi. I am purely using this as a speaker setup for my computer. The problem is my computer is also sending the video to the receiver. Although in day to day activity it works fine with the "duplicate" setting on for both "displays," my blu-ray player, PowerDVD 11, only plays the disc sending the video to the receiver, which leaves me seeing nothing (it only uses one display). I try to set my display to "disconnect projector," but then it doesn't give me the option to play my audio through the receiver.
So, can I use the hdmi connection to only send audio and not have to falsely "duplicate" my laptop screen?
