What is exactly your issue? With output to two different TVs you can't use one single EDID override unless video timings are compatible with both TVs.
My issues is that my avr is reporting hd audio but my htpc won't send it via ffdshow, mpc-hc etc..
But if I reconnect to one of my other tvs it does send hd audio?
Basically, my avr has 2 hdmi outputs. It outputs to the monitor to the tv depending on what I am doing, or in some cases both at thence same time.
Since switching between monitors and tvs etc my htpc has stopped detecting the capabilitys that my avr can receive bit stream hd audio, it's reported as being supported but fails when it's attempted.
If I disconnect and reconnect to my other HDTV my htpc sends he audio to the avr as expected, re connect my monitor and it's gone!
Bearing in mind the htpc is connected to the avr via hdmi and then on to a display (that receives no audio anyway) I'm confused why my htpc stops being he audio compatible when connected to a monitor as that (to me) makes no sense as its just where the picture goes, the audio stops at the avr and goes out the speakers... So I can only assume that when switching monitors that my avr is somehow reporting back to windows that the new monitor is not capable of he audio even though it's displayed in the audio settings? ...
HTPC -> AVR -> TV all via hdmi = HD Audio
HTPC -> AVR -> Monitor = No HD Audio even though it is reported as supported?
I'm so bamboozled by this as to me, it's just end end point display, it should effect my audio compatibility what so ever? I should be able to connect to a black and white 4" display if I want and still get hd audio via my avr which is connect to my htpc via hdmi
I was thinking of buying a steam box, but **** like this reminds me why I moved to consoles all those years ago
