Hdmi and dp don’t work well together

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have an intel i7 in a fan-less box. It has an hdmi output and a dp. I want to use the dp for a monitor and send audio through the hdmi to my receiver. 

In order to get the dp to work on my monitor I had to use another monitor through the hdmi. Then it defaults to “extended displays” and I can use the dp monitor. However when I remove the hdmi and plug in my receiver to the hdmi- the dp monitor thinks that a second monitor is connected. I can’t then open any windows on the dp monitor because it is being displayed on the other “non existent” monitor.

I tried setting the monitors to “mirror” but evidently is defaults back to “extended” monitors once the hdmi is plugged in to the receiver.

Any idea how to fix this?
