I have a headache

My receiver needs to be on in order to transmit audio through it as well as video. I can be completely wrong here, But I would imagine %99 of AVR's would have to have power to generate sound.
You may need to do some switching in your programming to the different HDMI inputs to be able to receive the signal from whatever appliance(DVD,cable,?) you're using.
