Well you definitly need to install the display driver, and also make sure the HDMI/DVI is set to auto in your bios. Then see where we are from their. What is your display manufacturer and model #? As well as finding the driver for your coprocessor.Thanks. Fabe

I talked to XFX technical support and they told me to change a jumper. I tried that and it still didn't work. They told me to try DVI and if that doesn't work I need to RMA my board.

The audio switching to HDMI is not weird, and it can be controlled in your sound control options. And the issue isn't that your TV is detected as a generic PnP monitor.
What you might try is to download the latest drivers from Nvidia and after installing, configure the display settings from the Nvidia applet in control panel using some other monitor as the primary display. If no other monitor will work, then the graphic chip may be defective or the HDMI cable is out of spec.

You don't say if you still have a monitor connected?

Have you looked at Control Panel>Apperance and Personalization>Display>Screen Resolution and see if your TV is displayed?

Try clicking Detect and then in the Multiple Displays drop down, select either 'Duplicate on these displays' or 'Extend these displays'

Can't get correct resolution when connecting PC to HDTV
