Situation:
  1. Older marantz SR7008 with only HDMI 1.4 passthrough (but i want to keep it) running 6.1. Will likely never have/need atmos (etc) on this setup.
  2. Upgrading TV to 4K
  3. Marantz to TV is through HDBaseT extender (I have a 4K extender already - put in months ago when the HD version broke).
  4. Multiple sources at receiver end, including Tivo, possible Roku or Shield for 4K streaming

I basically need something is both an audio extractor and a splitter... i think it would connect like:

(video source 1) Tivo --- HDFuryProduct --- HDBaseT TX - HDBaseT RX - 4K TV
(video source 2) Shield/Roku--- HDFuryProduct

(audio source 1) Tivo --- HDFuryProduct --- optical out ---- Marantz SR7008 optical input #1
(audio source 2) Tivo --- HDFuryProduct --- optical out ---- Marantz SR7008 optical input #2

I was originally looking at the Maestro as i thought i might just do this all with one set of units, and take advantage of ARC, but at $900 (plus i already have an extender), this is almost as much as a new receiver.

So i'm leaning toward just getting a new receiver that supports 4K, but if there is a cheaper solution that allows me to keep my receiver, i'd love to try it.

It looks like it might be the Diva? There is only one optical out, so how would that work?
