Help: LG B9 with Denon x2000 and Radeon VII

hi, i'm considering to switching my ST60 to the B9 and i think i have a big problem with my AVR (7.1 setup) if i'm going to do that switch.


right now, my devices are connected via hdmi (1.4) to my AVR as my sole input device which is forwarding the video output to my ST60.


as i'm reading the specs of the B9, i'm going to either lose a lot of video related gimmicks such as hdr, dolby vision and 4k @60hz (i'm not mentioning 4k 120hz at the moment because my gpu cant support it over hdmi 2.0, pls correct me if i'm wrong) and probably some other features but i will get 7.1 audio bitstreaming.


my question is, is there a way to enjoy both worlds? video out with hdmi 2.0 AND 7.1 audio bitsreaming?
the only thing i could think of is to connect hdmi 2.0 to the TV for video output only and a displayport-hdmi to my AVR to receive 7.1 sound (i have only 1 hdmi port on my gpu).
if i replace my gpu to an RTX 2070 super with usb-c port, can i solve this problem somehow?



do you think its gonna work? do you have any solutions without replacing my AVR? i really love my Denon X2000.


PS

i have read that the B9 is getting G-sync, is AMD's freesync is going to work here?



thanks in advance!

Lots of options.

First is as you said - HDMI to tv DisplayPort to HDMI to AVR. Been there done that.
Second, they make converters that take HDMI in and "split it" so you can use your older AVR and newer tv. Look at devices like the HDFury AVR key.
Third would be to use a mix of onboard graphics HDMI for audio and gpu for tv.

Do not use mirror or clone mode though, make sure you extend the desktop. Put the audio display in a corner so it's hard to accidentally move the mouse to the hidden screen. You only need it at 720p to enjoy all the audio options.

thanks for the reply.
can DP to HDMI passthrough all audio formats of Dolby and DTS, including their lossless formats?
will USB-c to Hdmi work here? in case i get the rtx 2070 super..
