Having had my TX-NR818 for a few years and being generally quite happy with it, i'm not really looking forward to effectively downgrade due to my TV upgrade. I simply cannot afford to but the same class of AV receiver again, but would like the benefits of 4K@60hz switching.
Is anyone aware of some form of simple switching unit which would allow me to passthrough the audio(via hdmi) to the AV receiver from multiple 4k devices?
The way i would see this working is i might need two inputs on my TV, one from the 818(4k@30) and one from the switch box(4k@60). 4k@60 inputs connect to the switchbox, audio passes through to the 818, video goes straight to the TV. All non 4k inputs connect directly to the 818.
Does such a thing exist? cheap AV 4k receivers don't have pre outs.
