    HDMI TV (Display 2) Blinks When my Monitor (Display 1) goes to sleep

    Hi Everyone,

    I bought a new monitor last week and since setting it up I seem to be having some connection issues. In the past, I had one HDMI-out from the GPU to the AV Reciever by my TV (where I do most of my gaming) and a DVI out heading from my GPU to the PC monitor. It worked fine.

    But, my old monitor stopped working last week so I purchased a new one. It doesn't have a DVI input so I purchased a Display-Port to HDMI cable which also works fine with the new monitor. The cable to the AV receiver hasn't been moved and is also working fine.

    The problem though is that when I set-up my TV as the main display and the PC monitor falls asleep Windows seems to think it's connecting and reconnecting over and over again. I hear the hardware connection/disconnections sounds infinitely and the TV screen blinks a black screen every time.

    I have tried a few solutions, mainly involving power-management settings. None of these worked except for disabling "USB Selective Suspend Setting", but then I was having connection trouble with my wireless devices like my mouse and steam controller.

    My graphics card is a Gigabyte R9 290, and I am running Windows 10. Thanks in advance for helping me troubleshoot guys. Happy to participate and answer any questions to get this resolved.
