I also can't seem to get my head around if using scenario 2. We would be leaving the video at the TV via eARC, then sending the audio back through HDfury to AVR over HDMI 1.4. It seems like with the change from eARC to reg HDMI 1.4 and passing the signal on down the line further would make for AV sync issues.
That's the beauty of eARC, it does not have any ARC problems and does not have any of the ARC limitations, any audio format works without issue
! In upcoming HDMI2.1 eARC world, TV becomes the real HUB, all sources to TV, allow VRR/ALLM, low input lag, etc... and full sound back to eARC capable AVR (or any AVR using our new generation devices !).
Not sure about your last sentence ! there is no issue at all, eARC TV such as LG C9 (which is also HDMI2.1) already in our lab, all works perfectly, not a single glitch. also tested Sony eARC TV (but not HDMI2.1 so no VRR/ALLM possible there), also working perfectly.
ANY SOURCES > HDMI CABLE > eARC TV > our device connected to TV retrieve the eARC and then send the full audio via self generated 1080p for any older AVR !
We are the world first on this (among others), see on my signature, been working on that for 18 months already.
Just go in Maestro or Diva thread and ask owners of eARC TV, those guys are already doing exactly what you are wondering here !
