    I am running triple monitors on an ATI Radeon HD 5670. The card has an HDMI port, a DVI port, and a Display port. Using a display port to HDMI active adapter I successfully got all three up and running. My issue is that while two monitors are hooked up directly, my third connection is a HDTV ran through a Yamaha receiver. Whenever the receiver is turned on or off or switched between my other devices, the computer recognizes it as new hardware and attempts to incorporate it into my display. This causes all of my monitors to flash and turn on and off until I open display settings to disable the monitor. So when I turn my PS3 on or off, my computer thinks I am trying to incorporate a third monitor. I have updated all the drivers with no success. Is there a program or setting that will force my computer not to alter the display when it detects another monitor?
