I know this was covered seven years ago… but seven years have passed. A somewhat whimsical application idea:
My Bravia ARC is connected to the Denon. This is great most of the time. But… right now I have a YouTube fireplace going. I also have an FM classical radio station going.
If I want to hear the ‘crackling’ of the fireplace as well as my choice of music, I have to unplug the HDMI cable from the TV ARC port. What would be great would be to have a smart switch, so I can voice (or programmatically via ST) command it to disconnect when I want both the AVR and the TV audio.
I see some options on the market. I am wondering who has recently utilized such switches, which ones you’ve tried, and what your result has been.
