Graphics Card

Gigabyte Radeon R9 280X Rev2.0 WindForce 3X OC 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card

AMD Catalyst Driver Version, and Driver History
Have tried from 13.10 all the way through to the most recent release Catalyst 14.4 (Did try 14.6 as i have been pretty lucky with the Beta ones but only rolled back as was getting jitters in video playback on most video players including PotPlayer, VLC e.t.c.)

Operating System
64-bit Windows 7 Pro Service Pack 1

Issue Details
Its not so much game issue related, its more of a HTPC related issue. For some reason when i use to have my old AMD Radeon HD 5770 OC it worked perfectly so i could clone my desktop onto my TV so i could control all aspects but for some reason on this R9 280X Graphics card it will not let me do it no matter what drivers Beta or not from around 13.10 all the way to the present beta it simply just will not work, i have even played around with the connectors like DP, HDMI and DVI to no avail. My old setup use to be my 5770 via HDMI to my Onkyo TX-SR508 A/V Amp and that worked perfectly with NO ARTIFACTS/TEARING at all and yet this same setup no longer works, why?? Why is that?
