I understand that this is very likely an OS level or even hardware related problem, but maybe someone already ran into it and has a solution. I’m sure it also applies to TVs.
I’m listening to Roon via HDMI out on my Windows 10 PC, however it seems that Windows and/or Roon resets the available HDMI outputs whenever I turn on or off the projector. In that case I always have to reconfigure the audio output in Roon, which is very annoying.
This is a new problem. I recently replaced my older projector with a new BenQ HT2050 / W1110. Before my HDMI audio output was always identified as Yamaha RX-V667 (the AVR) in Windows’ available audio outputs. Now it’s only identified as that when the projector is off. Switching it on refers to the output as BenQ W1110. A nice feature on paper. However, at least in Roon, it’s no longer seen as the same, already configured, HDMI output.
Is there any way to disable this magic and have Windows recognize the output as the AVR regardless of the displays/projectors state? I understand that this probably an OS / device setting, not a Roon problem.
Has anyone run into similar issues with their TV connected to an AVR?
Edit: In case it matters, I’m using the HDMI output of my nVidia Geforce GTX 1060, which features 2 of them and thereby makes the guesswork during reconfiguration even more annoying.
