I have my PC hooked up to my denon 1712 through hdmi and when I turn the volume all the way down it also turns my headphones down that are hooked to my PC. It doesn't adjust the windows control volume but still I can't hear anything on my headphones.

I want to display video from my PC and listen to my headphones at the same time, how can I do this?

Do you mean from the same source or different sources?

If the same source why not connect your headphones to the receiver's headphone jack?

I broke one adapter and can't find the other, I'll have to get another one.

But I don't see any way to shut off my speakers, on my old reciever I could just click the A button and turn off my speakers.

HDMI is a two way street. One device is capable of controlling another device over HDMI. You might be able to turn that feature off in your video card control panel.Look for a feature called CEC - Consumer Electronics Control connection.

When all else fails - RTFM!

Its most likely CEC like petriebird said. That can usually be turned off on the TV/Monitor side of things.

Videocards do not support CEC. By the sounds of it, you aren't switching audio devices. Windows 7 only supports ONE output device at a time. You can't have HDMI audio and headphones. You have to go into the audio control panel on the computer and change it from hdmi to analogue.

Thanks, thats what I ended up doing, just setting my rear panel as primary and it disabled my hdmi.

My WinXP Pro PC does multiple sound outputs. I have headphones plugged into the Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4's onboard headphone-out jack, and audio also runs to my receiver via a DVI+TOSLINK-to-HDMI converter box. Windows controls the headphone-out jack, but doesn't control the TOSLINK-out volume.
