I'm using arctic MC001-DVD HTPC. It runs Windows 7 (with all windows updates). The catalyst sw suite detects the display as VSX-520 which is the receiver connected via a HDMI cable to the PC. The receiver is connected to the TV with HDMI. The catalyst sw suite is the latest version from AMD website, installed with a default configuration.

I'm performing a simple test:

  1. Open a windows explorer window (or any other window) and maximize it.
  2. Turn off the TV (or the receiver or switch the receiver to another source - any of these actions make Windows think that the display is gone).
  3. Turn the display back on.
  4. The windows explorer window is not maximized anymore.

This is really annoying. I'm not very intersted in the windows explorer window. Instead, I'm running XBMC and whenever I turn off the TV or the reciever or change to another source in the receiver and then get back to the HTPC, the XBMC window looks bad - sometimes it is minimized, sometimes lower resolution and I need to restart XBMC.

Can anyone help me with that?

It's the behavior of windows. Contact MS, if you don't like it. But thinking about how windows 8 turned out to be, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Thanks. I will contact MS. Do you know if there's a workaround/fix for that?
