Client has older receiver, not HDR nor 60hz 4K.
TV has one 4K input.
Client has 3 4K sources.

Ideal would be a switcher (don't need matrix) around $400 that could switch at today's standard, and have 2 HDMI outputs. One for video directly to the TV, the other to pass full HD audio to the receiver. I figure it would probably need EDID settings on the outputs to keep HD audio throughput?

I suspect trying to put an HDMI splitter after a single output switcher is going to cause audio issues since the TV sink won't accept the HD audio. Plus added cost and complexity.

Replacing the receiver at current level is $2000+
He'll give up the HD audio before that happens.

I checked Key Digital, Atlona (it's not 2.2), Vanco, Wyrestorm

Thanks.

What kind of receiver does he actually have? A $2000 one? It ain't worth 2k if doesn't pass 4k/2.2. Rotel, Arcam? Is it a power issue? Tons of choices out there from $500-1500 that will skip the extra black boxes you are looking to add.

All I know of at the moment with 2 HDMI outputs is the Lumagen Radiance Pro line. They are not in your price range.

If your customer does not need the HD Audio / Atmos, and can get by on a DD/DTS 5.1 signal, you could put in a 4K HDMI switch with HDCP2.2 and audio extraction like the Key Digital KD-PRO4x1.

I recommend replacing the receiver, rather than attempting to make a patchwork gaggle of boxes operate flawlessly. How much time will be required to work out the kinks? Who will be paying for this time?

AVPro Store has a 4x2 18gbs switcher for $649 retail. A little more than you want to spend but I don't know of anything quality that is less expensive. I don't think metra has an 18gbs switcher.

I am sure you can try Amazon or Monoprice and find something cheaper (in quality and price). But I would want a company that supports us and I can get on the phone if I have a problem. Especially, with a project like this where there is likely to be problems.
