Windows 7: HDMI does't always work on startup...

HDMI does't always work on startup...

So most of the time the system comes up perfectly, but other times it fails to display a signal to the TV via HDMI. If I plug in a DVI cable it works perfectly. It's itermittent so I'm not sure what is causing it.

I could use the DVI but it's a pain to route that bigger plug, but if thats what I have to do so be it, but would rather use HDMI.

Any ideas what could be causing this?

Does nothing appear on the screen at all if you wait while HDMI is plugged in? I have my main monitor on HDMI and my second monitor on DVI, and while the PC boots up the DVI monitor will have the display on, then when Windows has started, the display is on my HDMI monitor.

Nope, it just sits there blank, PC connected to surround sound so you hear the Windows log on audio but the screen is blank. Tried powering the TV switching inputs etc nothing, soon as I plug in the DVI, perfect! Like the signal is sometimes not going through HDMI for some reason...
