HDMI splitter for Sony vpl-ws295es projector and Onkyo tx-nr717 AV receiver

So, it means I need HDMI splitter
Sony projector supports HDMI 2.0b ([email protected] HDR10/HLG HDCP2.2)
And AV receiver supports HDMI 1.4a (3D, DeepColor, x.v.Color, Lip Sync, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DSD and Multi-CH PCM)
I would love to find only passthrough splitter, if it is possible and if this make a sense.
So only impact on signal, video and/or sound, would have projector for 4k video and AV receiver for audio.
Is it possible?
Meanwhile I found this:

I clicked your links but they come back with errors. You need a splitter that supports edid control or downscaling so you get the max 4K hdr signal to your tv and the complete audio signal to your receiver. I use an HDFury Vertex2 for this but I know these EZCOO devices also do it a much lower cost https://www.amazon.de/dp/B085Q37JPR...uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl
I recover those links.
But if I put HDMI 1.4a cable into HDMI 2.0b OUTPUT No2 (the second one) for AV receiver what would happen?
And what about just pure passthrough?
I don't understand this "support" for all of this what they say (HDR, Dolby...).
It is just connector and cable, is it 1.4a or 2.0b or 2.1 or...
And this splitter should just copy signal into 2 without any influence on signal.
I don't understand, this is just pure logic (mine).
And what is difference between yours expensive and those 10 times cheaper?
What do you think about this one?
