I need this since my preamp does not accept HDMI at the native resolution of my display.
I don't know the answer ... if impossible, a workaround could be this (I don't know if it really works):
- DVI/HDMI out 1 of GPU: connected to the display
- DVI/HDMI out 2 of GPU: connected to the sound card
Use DualView or Extended Desktop mode. Set Display 1 (your display) as primary and its resolution to the desired one, and set Display 2 (your preamp) as secondary and its resolution to, say, 800x600.
GPU will send the second half of the desktop (a blank wallpaper) to the preamp (muxed with audio) that you will never use for your work.
