I forgot to mention that everything works fine if I start the computer with the cable plugged in. That's obviously not a solution if I want to plug in quickly or disconnect and reconnect.

edit: actually, the TV needs to be on during start-up or else the computer won't find it.
Here is some info on cables: How to Make a Category 5 /5e Patch Cable

Cat5 and 6 both are 4 pairs of wires, only 4 wires are actually used to connect computers in a network. The difference between 5 and 6 is the quality of the wire, the gauge, and its improved conductivity.

Question: Can you remove and reconnect the HDMI cable safely when directly connected between the computer and receiver successfully when both are powered on? (I am not recommending you do this)
