So here is how my setup goes, Asus G50 >HDMI>1121K>HDMI> Panasonic ST50 plasma.

I use the laptop to play a lot of music off of, But it only works if the TV is on. I didn't care with my old TV but since this new one is a plasma, I don't want to leave a blank image on the screen and have IR or burn in occur. My friend said that it is either a setting or a limitation issue with the receiver, but I have no idea what it would be... I want to be able to connect my laptop to the receiver and play music w/o the TV being on. Is this possible? If so how?

Thanks guys.

not a receiver issue... almsot certainly an issue with the card in the laptop... check the htpc forums to see about what people are doing...

what is happening is that your card in the pc is expecting a valid sink, and since the display is off, it's not finding one, and will not complete the handshake... it's not recognizing that the avr is also a valid sink (in addition to being a repeater)...
