4K to projector

Since my Onkyo 636 will not do 4K with HDR, I am forced to get an HDMI switch to do this.
This way I can take the 4K signal directly to the projector but my question is how do I get the sound from the HDMI to the Onkyo now since the HDMI switch will only have one out on it.

What options do you have on the XBOX 1 S for outputs? Can you use an extra HDMI out of the XBOX 1 S and then bit stream into the Onkyo? Sorry I am not familiar with the XBOX 1 S.

Can you run your 4K HDMI to your projector, and the run optical into the XBOX 1 S.
What HDMI switch are you talking about? Do you currently have one in your system already?

I do not have a switch yet - I am wanting to bring both the xbox one s (soon to be xbox one x) and ps4 pro to the projector but I also need to get the sound to the receiver

Yea, not too sure about that HDMI 4K switch thing. I tried to use an non 4K receiver and did not have too much luck. I decided to get the Denon X4200, so that I can do audio and 4K from my 4K player to my 4K projector. Depending on your amount of speakers, you can get a decent 4K receiver cheaper than you think.

HDFury Integral + Linker or New Vertex will do what you require - 2 x 4K UHD Inputs with 1 x Passthru to the Projector and the second Output down converted to work the AVR - cost is around $349.

Thanks Joe Fernand for mentioning the HD FURY Integral. I was going to but am not an SME, so I could not speak intelligently about it. I was pretty sure that an 4K HDMI switch was not going to work with this.


BladeZX ,
For $349 you could get an Denon:

This is a 4K 7.2 receiver. Just thought that I would show you another option.

Keep in mind the options are Integral+Linker or the Vertex - the Integral will act as a Switch, Matrix or Distribution Amp with two 'equal' Outputs, if you then add the Linker it will down convert one Output to suit a legal AVR or Display.

The Vertex effectively combines the two units into a single chassis.

Sounds like you just need a HDMI 2.0a (or better) 4K/HDR compatible Splitter right after the XBox.

Other "black boxes" might do something similar or split-off an acceptable audio tap. Kinda surprised the XBox-One doesn't have that already.

If what you need costs as much as Joe says, then upgrading AVR might be a wise choice. You will be all caught-up for these consoles and hopefully the next set.

You need a really-nice (high bandwidth) HDMI cable going to the projector, or all this is for nothing.

^ +1 what Tesla1856 said. Depending on your cable length need, better make sure it is a good one. I had a blue rigger cable htat said 4K, great for 1080P, but not 4K.
