Keep the HDMI connection after AVR is turned off

Hi,
Is there a way to let Windows believe that the HDMI connection is still there even though the connecting device (in my case AVR) is turned off? I currently have a problem when the AVR is turned off, Windows detects the connection to AVR is down and therefore removes the audio playback device. It gives issues to some program, which changes the playback device so that next time when I turn on the AVR, the sound comes from another device.
Thank you!

Welcome to HTPC-HDMI-AVR hell.
There may by two ways to skin this cat.


1. Genfen HDMI detective or equivalent
2. HDMI switch.


The HDMI detective is a little box that keeps the HDCP-HTPC handshake happy. It basically isolates your AVR from the PC. Some folks have claimed that using an HDMI switch in between the HTPC and AVR also works.

I wonder if this is the same problem I am having.... I have recently found that when I go into JRiver the audio is gone and I have to re-boot Windows to get it back. I will have to see if re-booting my AVR will solve the problem as maybe I just need Windows to look for it again.

Thanks! I thought it was a Windows issue and can be solved by some software......

Thank you!
I've battled this issue randomly since I moved my HTPC to Win7. I've tried software hacks, covering pin-19, everything. I finally broke down and bought a Genfen HDMI detective. I've had absolutely no issues since!
