Ok, how the F do I do this.....

Need a sanity-check from people who have probably been in similar situations, maybe, perhaps:

New (to me) receiver with 2 HDMI outputs and 4k/HDR support.

1 projector which will use the receivers 5.1.2 setup for audio.

1 TV which will NOT use the 5.1.2 setup, instead using a soundbar connected to the TV via optical/toslink because the TV is in another section of the room.

There shouldn't be any drama here right? I can manually turn audio ON/OFF on each of the HDMI outputs, so no audio to the projector and audio to the TV and the TV will simply disable its speakers to pass the audio to the soundbar via the TOSLINK connector I have working now.

Really its just this: I can use this receiver like an HDMI switch via passthrough I think......uh, right?

Or is there a smarter way to do this I'm not seeing.
