Assuring 1080p at Powerup?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
If my HTPC is powered on before the TV/AVR the HDMI output defaults to 480p (720x480) instead of 1080p. I don't recall having this problem in the past but then again I have just substainally updated my system.

HD 6570 (CC 12.1)-->(HDMI)-->Yamaha RX-V371-->(HDMI)-->P55VT30

Is there a (simple) way to lock in 1080p output?
(Or, is my only option to train my wife to turn the TV on first? )

I have the same setup as you but with a Vizio TV.

The Windows 8 consumer preview has fixed the 480p resolution problem for me.

I do still have the occasional loss of audio when resuming from sleep though. If I could figure that out it would be perfect.

I got around this problem by 'remoteing' into my HTPC with the receiver off and changing the display resolution to 1080p. I used splashtop remote from an iPad (set to 'use desktop resolution'). I'm not sure if VNC or other similar stuff will work too, but I haven't tried it.

The audio problem I got around by disabling all audio devices apart from HDMI. So it doesn't get stuck on anything else!

Ahhh! Good idea - I see how that could do the trick. I use VNC on the system so I will give it a shot.
