I recently upgraded from a Pioneer VSX-1120K to a Marantz SR5008. While I'm absolutely thrilled with the audio performance, there's just one thing that I can't seem to get right.
My computer is the only source plugged into the receiver. The TV is a Samsung F8500. The computer also has a 1440p DVI monitor and analog Swans M10 speakers connected to it. Graphics card is a Geforce GTX 650.
With the Pioneer, the computer would automatically switch audio and video devices:
TV and AVR both OFF = Computer monitor as primary display, Swans M10s as primary audio device.
TV and AVR both ON = TV as primary display, receiver as primary audio device.
TV off and AVR on = computer monitor as primary display, AVR as primary audio device.
I didn't need to adjust any settings or use special software--it just worked.
Now with the Marantz, I have to manually switch display devices in Windows' control panel, and I sometimes have to reboot the PC in order to get HDMI audio to work. I've experimented with the different HDMI settings in the Marantz, but I just can't get the PC to work as flawlessly with this receiver as it did with the old Pio.
The receiver is the only thing that's changed. The TV, PC, video card, and even the HDMI input used on the TV are all the same.
Am I missing something obvious?
