When the AVR goes off the HTPC looses connection to the HDMI display. Ergo, I loose the picture resolution and the audio link - until, upon restarting the AVR, I reboot the PC - to re-establish the link.

Is there any software I can use on the HTPC which will override the lack of EDID coming when the AVR is off so it does not loose connection to the audio output and display?

Thanks

Does your receiver offer passthru on HDMI? Got a new receiver recently, that was a change I needed to make in the receiver's settings.

There's hardware that can do that...

I have a Theta Casablanca - don't see that type of option.

I will check.

Checked out the Geffen piece - only HDMI 1.3 support.

I am sure I saw some software for the PC which fixed this.
