So, I've had this problem for a long time, and it's not a major issue. I have a TV duplicating my primary monitor, and when the tv is off my display will sometimes go black for a few seconds as if finding new hardware. In the NVIDIA control panel, the monitor will show in the "set up multiple displays tab" and disappear corresponding to those display flashes.
This always happens when turning the TV on or off, as expected the hardware is found and lost respectively, but I don't understand why either the graphics card seems to be occasionally pinging the TV or vice versa. While not much of a problem, it's a bit annoying when watching a video or gaming.

I'm not really sure if this is a graphics driver/card issue or a TV one.

PC
OPSYS: Windows 8.1
CPU: Intel i5 3.2GHZ
GPU: MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (problem existed with previous MSI GTX 970)

TV
Vizio Smart-TV (unsure of model, will update if it's important)

Thanks in advance for any help!
