Been watching this thread for a while now and last night I picked up this motherboard.
Unfortunately I cannot get any picture when running through my Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver.
I initially did Vista 64bit set up with an LCD monitor hooked up via DVI, and later tested it with a 32 inch LCD connected via HDMI. Both worked fine including HDMI audio to the LCD although I couldn't get the HDMI connection to display at my LCDs native resolution of 1366x768, it was displayed at 1280x720.
On to the living room where the Onkyo is connected to my Toshiba 42HDX82 CRT RPTV HDTV set circa 2002. Connection is via HDMI out from the receiver to the TVs DVI input (adapter on end of HDMI cable to plug into TV)
I have a PS3 and a HD DVD player connected to this receiver already and both work fine to the TV no problems.
Here is whats happening with the HDMI output from the DG45ID:
1. When booting normally, the last thing I see displayed is the Vista progress meter and then the screen goes blank. The machine continues the boot process but I have no picture.
2. Tried booting using low resolution mode (F8 option) 640x480, I get past the progress meter and the Vista logo and get all the way to desktop and shortly after that (3-4 seconds) the screen goes blank.
3. Tried booting into safe mode and I can get into Windows and display works fine but at safe mode resolution only.
4. Tried connecting DG45ID HDMI directly to TVs DVI input and I can boot normally and have a display. Obviously no HDMI audio to receiver that way which is the whole point.
I have another XP machine connected with a Radeon 1950 Pro outputting from its DVI connector to this receiver using a DVI cable with a HDMI adapter on the end and I can output at full resolution through the receiver to TV. I tried the same thing on the DG45ID DVI output and again, no picture. (as in #1 above)
Obviously this is a bit frustrating based on the results... I know my receiver is fine because it works with the PS3, HD DVD and another PC even.
Does anyone have any ideas of what I might try next...I think I am out of luck based on what I am getting so far and for whatever reason this configuration is not going to work.
p.s. one final note, I installed the Intel Integrator Assistant, but...where the heck is it? Its not on the programs menu and I can't find it anywhere on the hard drive.
