I just put together my new HTPC, and I want to be able to send audio to my receiver and video straight to my TV. The reasons for this are 1. if I use the HDMI passthrough on the AVR, there's too much lag on the mouse input to the HTPC by the time it gets to the TV; and 2. for some strange reason, my TV (Pioneer Kuro KRP-600M) does really weird things with a 1080p HDMI signal even when it's in dot-by-dot mode. The screen tends to "float" around so that just a sliver of one or two sides (seems random which ones) get cut off of the image when it's displayed. It does not do this with a DVI signal though, it's pixel perfect all the time.
Ordinarily I would just use toslink digital to send audio to my receiver and send the DVI to the tv, but I want to have HD Audio capability, which toslink can't do.
Sadly it seems that when I have the HDMI going to the AVR and DVI going to the TV, there is no handshake for the HDMI or something, because it doesn't show up as an option in my default audio preferences window.
Any tips are appreciated.
For reference, my video out is Intel HD4000 on Ivy Bridge processor.
