I have a basic GT210 card and I'm using the HDMI connection to my Onkyo amp.


I am finding that when a sound plays on the computer the onkyo loses signal for about 2-3 sec (same as changing input). However, here is the weirdness....


A constant sound stream is fine. It is a sound followed by silence that is the issue. Heres an example...


open a folder (click sound emmited) - blacks out 2-3 secs

about 5 seconds after that - blacks out 2-3 secs

open a folder (click sound emmited) - blacks out 2-3 secs

etc


It is as if it is going in and out of 'sound mode' and causing the amp to rescan.


Its driving me bonkers. I have to open up TV or play a movie in the background just to be able to use the machine!!


It worked fine with a Xonar card, but that was DVI -> HDMI


Help!

I have an Onkyo too (TX-SR750). With my model, when you send a signal over HDMI the sound will not work unless the video signal is a TV Resolution (720P, 1080i/p, etc.) so if your Windows desktop is in a non-tv resolution (like 768x1366) as was setup on my system (because my TV's native resolution is 768x1366) it will drop sound when performing Windows tasks. It will paly video fine (since the resolution changes to 1080p for video, but then when it does its Windows stuff it reverts back to desktop setting and drops sound).

Now I set my Windows Desktop to 1920x1080 and I have sounds in all cases.

Maybe this is your problem too.
