Low Profile HDMI video card

HP Recommended
HP Z220 SFF
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello, Im Thomas a new to the forum.  Why is it when i connect my (Z220 SFF PC) to my receiver from the display port and play a movie all is well but If I leave and go to another device and come back,  th sound is gone and the picture may be gone or just not responsive.   I have 3 other devices connected thru the receiver HDMI to HDMI and i can leave each device and come back to it and its working perfectly.....   For some reason the displayport to hdmi will not hold the handshake.... Also, if the PC goes into sleep mode and i try to connect it, it just will not connect..   I have to restart the PC to start all over again...  Do I need a low profile HDMI video card so it can stay connected like all my other devices....  Frustrated here..  Was wanting to get my Plex started..   Thanks for any help PLEASE

click power  then advanced.

 

put PC into what I call presentation mode, all sleeps off, all hybernate modes all off.

then there is a chance.

NO warranty answers by me.

Thanks Savvy2,  that definitely stop it from going into sleep modes but it didnt stop the fact that if i leave hdmi port that the Z220 computer is on and lets say go to my nvidia shield, when i return back to the Z220 the screen may be overblown or the sound is not there.....  Talk to a geek guy from best buy and he said it happens when they are setting up and they recommend getting hdmi cards....   I wish it was another solution but i might just have to do it

 

Thanks again Savvy2
