PC & Receiver HDMI Issue
I am running a 1080 TI Nvidia video card with 1 DVI, 2 HDMI and 2 display ports. I have 1 DP connection going to the Monitor and 1 HDMI connection going to a Denon Receiver with a 5.1 speaker setup. PC is Intel based with a Asus MB.
When first powering up the PC, I can not get any audio out of the receiver. Does not matter if the PC is started up with the receiver off (receiver is turned on after the PC powers up) or on, the result is the same. The standard Win10 audio trouble shooting steps does not resolve the issue. From the sound control panel, I can see the Denon is connected (when turned on) and set the default device. I have run down various Win10 audio services stopping and restarting them but it does not correct the issue.
The only thing I have found that does work is having the Denon on and rebooting the PC. PC comes back up and audio works fine with no trouble shooting or other adjustments.
Any suggestions on what I can do to get the audio to work when the PC is starting up and eliminating the need to reboot the PC?
Update: Turns out windows is defining two different devices for the Denon. One is being used when the PC initially starts up, the other is being used when the PC is restarted...
