Need to enable HDMI Audio, It works when I have a display hooked to my receiver, but I dont want to use 24/7 specially during night when I have my headset hooked. so I wish to use HDMI output for Audio only, this I cannot find.

More Detailed Well, in my words.
So, I got a Receiver, And I want the audio on it. But not video. so I can connected it to HDMI. the audio works almost flawlessly besides DTS bitstream losses. might be cable, at least I believe so, but PCM 5.1 works perfectly
but to the main problem
When I connect one my receiver to my main graphics card (Sapphire AMD 6870 1GB) with HDMI, I do NOT get audio on. but if I connect a video device to my receiver. I can get Audio, but the problem is that I have to show the display on that device. AND use to show/extend/clone a Desktop BEFORE that will actually enable Audio. if I just connect the HDMI cable to a video as well then nothing will happend.
it works when i am extending the display but the problem is that I use headset during night or sometimes during day. it would be a stupid thing to let my receiver be powered on when I am gaming/watching movie.
as receivers uses fair amount of watts per hour.
so I tried connecting the HDMI display with VGA instead but the bloody thing is that my AUDIO always gets turned off. is this possible To turn on?
