So its all working? The only downside I can see is if you are using both TVs at the same time, you won't be able to use the surround sound setup. But a harmony or something could be programmed to switch on/off passthrough mode if you are using the upstairs TV. Is that correct?

Yes it's working. Actually once you turn the receiver off the sound on the upstairs TV comes on. It's workable for me right now. I'll have to look at other possible solutions but for now it will work.

The only things I can think of for workarounds would be to put a cheap receiver buy the upstairs TV so that it does the downgrading to 2ch or use an extender to carry analog audio to that TV from all of the sources. Neither is perfect by a long shot....

Or ditch the HDMI and use the component outputs of the set-top box with a component video/stereo balun (~$60) for the 2nd room...
