RADEOn HD 5670 HMDI problem connecting to AV Receiver

Hello,
I have a HTPC with a Ati Radeon 5670 card, if I connect direct the HDMI from the PC to my Av Receiver (Onkyo Ts-XR608) it wont get the signal, if I bypass the PC HDMI to a HDMI Splitter (1 input X 2 Output) and then connect it from there to the Onkyo it works fine.

What could be the problem

Thank you

  1. Do you mean the audio or video or both signals?
  2. Both signals

    No video no audio
  3. Are you connecting to HDMI Port 5 (PC)?
  4. Not sure about the video.

    Are you aware that the audio on graphics cards is only for audio codecs found in movies? You won't get Windows sounds or video game sounds.

    I have a lot of video and recommend one of these two devices for some people:
    1. Western Digital TV Live HUB, or
    2. Boxee Box

    The Boxee Box has no internal hard drive, the WD does (930GB usable). I ripped my sisters DVD's to ISO format for her kids and they can play them all from the WD device (140 discs stored).

    The Boxee Box has a great interface. You can try the Windows version, but be aware the interface is much improved on the Boxee version.

    I'm assuming you could use a hard drive like the 2TB WD Elements USB drive with Boxee Box. I know it turns off and on automatically with the WD HUB. This is an important detail and something you'd want to verify.

    This is not true. My HDMI connected HTPC produces all audio for all uses.
  6. This could be an issue with windows detecting the receiver, might just have to stick with the splitter in between.
