Question Advice? Complex setup with PC/TV/Projector/Soundbar

Hello,
I'm planning to add a projector to my PC/TV/Soundbar setup, and trying to design the connectivity.
The PC/TV/Soundbar are next to each other.
The projector will be on the other side of the room and I can't run cables between the two sides of the room.

Current usages which are working fine :
Usage 1 : Watch DigitalTV using TV remote, video=TV & audio=Soundbar
Usage 2 : Watch video running on PC, video=TV & audio=Soundbar

Current setup : see attachment

New usage to setup :
Usage 3 : Watch video running on PC, video=Projector & audio=Soundbar, TV screen being off

New setup plan : see attachment



Already owned :
TV : Panasonic Viera TX-L42E6B
Soundbar : Samsung-HW-K450 (different inputs : 2 HDMI, SPDIF, Bluetooth etc)
PC : Intel D34010WYKH3 NUC (only one miniHDMI output)

To buy :
HDMI Duplicator : Teorder 2 Ports HDMI Splitter (1 HDMI input / 2 HDMI outputs) - £8
Wireless HDMI Transmitter : Optoma-WHD200 - £200
HDMI Audio/Video Splitter : Neoteck HDMI Audio Extractor - £13
Projector : anything with HDMI input
Lots of HDMI cables

Does my plan makes sense ? Any better ideas ?
Is there a way to have only one box that does "HDMI Audio/Video Splitter" AND "HDMI Duplicator" ?
How can I be sure that I can switch off the TV when using the projector ?
Is there a way to spend less on the transmission of the video from the PC to the Projector ? The Wireless HDMI Transmitter is expensive.
Thanks for reading !

Thanks that's very interesting , it seems to do the two roles at the same time.

But I've now got a better design, I'll prepare that...

I've attached a new design (bottom of the post) using :
- miniDisplayPort
- miniHDMI
- jack 3.5mm
all from my PC.

It seems to simplify the design.
What do you think about it ?
Thanks !
