Playing only audio through HDMI- audio stops when TV is turned off

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a quirky problem with audio playback through my laptop. it currently has a Nvidia GT330 and it's connected via HDMI to my pioneer SC1222 receiver which then connects to my panasonic P55ST50. Sometimes I like to just play music from my laptop, such as mp3's or pandora etc. however, I dont want to leave the TV on as i don't want to burn in images/ want to conserve power. as soon as i power off the TV, the audio stops and then starts playing through my laptop. is there some type of setting I on my laptop that will keep outputting digital audio through the HDMI into the receiver?

I'm also soon to be replacing this with a new HTPC w/ intel HD 4000 graphics but am anticipating a similar problem when i power off the TV.

Many receivers return a different EDID depending on whether the TV is on or off. In other words, check to see what HDMI output device is shown by the computer when the TV is turned off and make sure it's enabled by default, too.

Unfortunately, some receivers return the same information in both cases, in which case your out of luck. (That's the case with mine. frown.gif )
