suggests something in your chain doesnt like the resolution or refresh rate. If you plug the HDMI directly into the monitor, if it works then its your receiver.
What is you current desktop resolution and refresh rate?
Try 1080p 60hz and get back to me
Actually, I resolved the issue. The card I have has the HDMI socket offset in a manner that makes the cable an awkward fit on my computer. Some "finessing" got it to seat completely and the issue is resolved.
