Dual screen setup but want option to change 1 monitor input

Here's a drawing of my current setup. The problem I'm running into is when I set the HDMI switcher to the PS4, monitor 2 correctly still shows my PC (that's what I want) but the audio from the receiver no longer works. The sound icon on the taskbar gets the red circle thing and when I troubleshoot it, it says it's unplugged.

Basically I want to be able to have my dual screen setup for PC but have the option to play PS4 on one of the screens, but still have the audio from my receiver work for the PC

I use headphones for PS4, so I don't need the audio from the receiver for that.

Both monitors have built in speakers but I don't use them.

What type of HDMI switcher are you using?

hit start, type run, press enter, type mmsys.cpl and press enter then select the default sound device to one that's still hooked up after you switch monitor 1 to ps4.

Video: JVC RS4500 135" screen in pure black room no light, htpc nvidia 1080ti.
Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, 2 sub arrays both infinite baffle: 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 4x12 fi audio running on 2nd ep4000.
