I have a nagging "feature" in my HTPC setup.

The setup is: Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H with an ATI Radeon HD 5670 video card on Windows 7. The latest Realtek audio drivers are intalled. The video/audio is piped by HDMI from the video card through a receiver to TV. When the receiver/TV are on before the HTPC boots, I get 5.1 audio output from the PC just fine. But, when the HTPC boots or wakes from sleep and the receiver is not on yet, I get only stereo output - that becomes the only option in Realtek HD audio manager under HDMI output. It seems that the driver is too smart for its own good and detects that there is no 5.1 playback device. I've searched everywhere for an option/solution to stop it from doing that and just trust that there is a 5.1 playback device.

Any help?
