CrossfireX not working with Reciever

So, everything works as long as I don't have CrossfireX enabled.
I have 2x HD5850, they're working fine, everything that is not working "AMD HDMI Output not attached"
So I got no sound @ speakers and no screen at TV as long as I'm in a game @ fullscreen. As soon as I quit the game "AMD HDMI Output attatched"

Set up is like this PC (HDMI) -> Reciever -> (HDMI) -> TV
Also I got speakers + subwoofer to reciever.

= ONE HDMI @ primary graphiccard ONE DVI @ primary graphiccard to my main 24" screen.
ONE HDMI from Reciever to TV
Then 3x soundcables to 2x spekaers and 1x sub

Also got DVI -> my primary screen 24" @ 1920x1080
TV = 40" 1920x1080 @ duplicate.

As long as I have ONE graphiccard - I can play games with sound in my speakers and I got picture on both TV & my 24" screen.

And when I enable crossfirex, as soon as I start a game or like application like 3dmark11 in full screen - TV = No picture on TV and no sound in my speakers.

"AMD HDMI OUTPUT = NOT PLUGGED"
Here's my problem. As I got one cable from reciever that gives me both TV picture & sound from my speakers..

As soon as I turn the game off - sound is back, HDMI is plugged again.

I got Cata 13.1 and Cap 2 12.11
I removed old drivers with drive sweeper and such.. No clue why it aint working.

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think HDMI will work when crossfired only the DVI and the displayports.

What do you mean?
I should be able to use either 2x dvi or 1x dvi 1x hdmi.

OR 2x DVI 1x displayport
OR 1x DVI 1x HDMI 1x displayport.

But if you use 2x dvi and 1x hdmi -> not work as HDMI & DVI is on same channel.
Atleast that's how I understood it, maybe someone can confirm this?
