I understand your point about HDCP - but even when I'm on the regular Windows desktop, if I turn off the AVR or the TV, the Vertex reports no signal from the SOURCE (HTPC). No signal is then provided when I turn the AVR or TV back on. I need to either power cycle the Vertex or send a new hotplug detect event (unplug/replug cable, power cycle HTPC, etc. all work).
Thanks for your help.
Before I look into this, you must confirm the following:
If you start PC with Vertex HTPC mode ON, end up in windows desktop with your AVR and TV passing thru and displaying the signal and then turn off anything at Vertex output, do you have same results ?
I'm asking this specifically, because as I wrote early, if you just try to play some protected content when HTPC mode is on, then you might very much end up in this situation, so I'm trying to make sure that in your test, you haven't played any protected content with HTPC mode On prior to make this test conclusion.

For example, if I supply a DD5.1 signal to Input 1 can it convert it to 5.1 PCM and send via Output 1 (with no active video) and the video via Output 2?
Can it send out the same audio signal that it receives but with no active video?
None of our device can do any sound manipulation such as DD/DTS to PCM or any other. We DO NOT manipulate AUDIO, only VIDEO.
No active video doesn't exist, valid HDMI signal implies active video, in fact its a blackframe self generated video stream that is used to carry the sound. This can be done with AVR-Key with some limitation on 600MHz signal.
It will be possible to do it as well and without limitations on upcoming Maestro, Diva and others, that also have the advantage of 4 inputs.
It's not possible on Vertex or Integral2, as the signal going to AVR carry the original video downscaled to feed AVR max capabilities in terms of sound and video.

I red manual but also didn`t find any clear instructions regarding this and even no mentions about it. Same with first post in this thread, until you start to make upgrade, but this was not my case, I don`t like upgrades.
I will post my old config later on.
If only we would have no update to do, but unfortunately nowadays with all sources and sinks having internet and getting update, things change and compatibility can be broken easily, ex: LG who changed DV string twice
Any devices that cannot be updated would immediately be garbage when facing such situation.
If memory serves, usermanual p13 (combo trick) never changed, except to report the addition of the lock icon at some time, but the combo trick had always been listed as far as i recall.

If you use Custom EDID with FULL AUDIO, then it have everything possible in the world today supported in it. If your sound system doesn't support everything, just make sure the source is set to something that your sound system support.
If you don't want to make source settings adjustement, you can always use Automix with flag to retrieve exact capabilities from your sound system, so source won't see anything more or less than what your sound system can do.
And then ultimately you can do a custom edid out of the automixed one. (just by saving automix edid and loading it back in a custom slot)
