I have a Sapphire 5670 and I am using both the HDMI and the displayport connections in the following way:
HDMI -> Onkyo 606 -> Epson projector (1080p, 60hz)
Displayport -> 1080p TV (via Displayport - HDMI connector)
I can only get the sound coming out of one of the two devices - whatever was activated first. So, if I start with the TV, I can't get any sound coming out of the Onkyo. If I start with the Onkyo, I can't get any sound from the TV.
Video is OK - both devices can always display 1080p video.
Important: I don't need them to display video or sound at the same time. But as of today I need to reboot Windows everytime I want to switch from the TV to the projector. Ideally, I just want to turn one off, turn the other one on and get it working.
Is there any way to make it work? Do I need a different card?
I also tried the HDMI Splitter option, but then I got into a different issue: If the TV is the first one recognized by the splitter (hdcp compatible), only stereo sound comes out of Windows media center. If the Onkyo is the first one identified, it will bitstream TrueHD/DTS-HD to the tv, which doesn't work either.
So the solution would require Windows to recognize what device is "on" at the time and send the appropriate sound.
