Doing a major remodel and had home wired with Cat6 runs to all TV locations for video distribution from network/av closet. Picked up this Monoprice 8x8 HDBaseT Matrix Switch with de-embedded audio for budget DIY video distribution. Just realized that I hadn't thought through the audio distribution
So I have a Denon AVR X4500H as my receiver to handle the 7.1 system in the living room and a Zone 2 outdoor TV with stereo outdoor speakers. Remaining 5 TV's will have soundbars. Video sources for the TV's will be 1 Tivo and 2-3 Tivo Mini's. Question is, how am I going to get the audio from the Tivo's to distribute along with the video? I've attached pics of the back of the Matrix, the HDBaseT receivers, and the Denon.
Unless all of your Zones support 7.1 audio it may be simpler to add a second TiVo box and have the main box dedicated to the 'Cinema' Zone and a second box set to 2.0 audio via the Matrix to all other Zones.
