I have multiple sources that I want to view and two different tv in separate rooms. One of the TV will have surround sound and the other just using the TV speakers. Is it possible to use a 4x2 matrix hdmi switch to connect my sources, and connect one output from the switch to my tv and the other output going to the AVR which in turn will provide video to my TV and also the surround sound audio? If this is possible will I lose any quality by doing this? I included a diagram

You will likely run into issues with digital / surround audio unless your TV supports it. Search for "HDMI common denominator" problems to get a load on this. The fix is to get an HDMI-based Soundbar for the other TV so that they have the same HDMI audio capabilities.

This also assumes both TVs are 1080p-capable, otherwise you'll have that issue, too...
