HDMI extractor supporting ARC (bidirectional)?

Does anyone know of an ARC-compatible HDMI audio extractor that supports extracting audio bidirectionally?

That is to say, one that can sit between a TV and receiver, and extract the audio whether the audio is traveling from the receiver to the TV or from the TV to the receiver.

My parents have a Yamaha RX-V379 connected to a 49" TCL Roku TV, and a TiVo HD connected to the Yamaha. They watch a mix of content from the TV's native apps and the TiVo.

My dad has recently experienced sudden hearing loss, and is having a hard time hearing the TV, so I'm working on a solution for him to use headphones (probably wireless).

The headphone ports on both the receiver and the TV shut off the speakers, so that only works if he's watching alone -- and the one on the TV is located behind it. The receiver doesn't have a monitor out or similar that I can find. So the only way I can think of to grab audio from both sources is to do it from the HDMI between the receiver and the TV.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

The HDFury Integral² will extract audio from a connected Source(s) and from an ARC enabled TV to a 3.5mm socket which also doubles up as an Optical Out.

^^^^^^ thanks Joe. I was hoping you'd show up as I don't have the experience or knowledge to answer these types of questions.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

I'm not sure I fully fully follow, but the S/PDIF optical out on the TCL Roku passes DD (but probably not DD+) from its apps (I know) and (I think) HDMI in. You can get a bluetooth transmitter with S/PDIF in for your headphones. Does this help?

I think I was assuming that if HDMI ARC was enabled, the S/PDIF would be disabled. But maybe that is not the case.

Appreciate the link to the HD Fury, as well.
