I just built an HTPC using an Asus P8B75-M motherboard, Core i3 3225 CPU, 8 GB RAM, Intel 320 80GB SSD, and 2TB WD Green HDD. The PC is working great. I did all of the setup at my desk connected to one of my PC monitors. The trouble started when I connected it to my A/V system.
I actually get a picture right away when I plug in HDMI. When I start Windows Media Center, which is the main function of this computer, the screen goes black. I got it to come back after unplugging the HDMI cable a few times but then I turned my system off and back on and couldn't get anything on the screen. I'm guessing I need something like the DR HDMI?
The other problem is that I cannot output 5.1 audio through HDMI because the audio output shows up as "Panasonic TV" instead of my Yamaha receiver and it only gives me the option of 2.0. Could the DR HDMI fix this as well?
