Using a custom build PC.
Graphics Card: GTX 1080
Primary Display: Asus VG248QE
Secondary Display: Samsung Series 6 4k (UN43NU6900)
OS: Windows 10 Pro (latest build)

Both displays work fine when intended
When want more FPS in games, i need to turn off and disable my TV (secondary display)
i noticed when i do this, however, i have this consistent disconnect/reconnect of the TV which can resize my main monitor, hang frames, black screen, audio drop out, etc.
It seems the TV is trying to probe the device it is connected to which causes my PC to act as if i am changing Resolution or connecting a new monitor.
This happens maybe every 10-15 minutes, which in most multiplayer games, this could happen two or three times a match.

initially it seemed like a USB device disconnecting and reconnecting, but after troubleshooting by disconnecting the TV, the issue was resolved.

I would really like to be able to keep my TV's HDMI connected and just disable it while i game.

Any help would be appreciated.
