    Hey all!

    Couple of months ago i managed to complete my DIY project and got hyperion up and running thanks to all of you wonderful people and your valuable help.
    Last couple of weeks i've been wondering if i could tweak my setup. at the moment i'm running my htpc and ps4 through my avr, then the hdmi output goes through a 1x2 hdmi splitter, then one goes to the hyperion setup and the other goes to my tv. unfortunately by doing so, i'm losing the ARC features since my tv cannot send sound down to my avr even though the CEC functions work fine. so then, i can use optical to get sound from my tv to my avr, but to do that i have to disable cec functions.
    and so i've been thinking, would a dual hdmi output avr work for me? have the AVR's ARC output straight to the tv and the second one hooked up to the hyperion? any ideas/input on this?
    thanks everyone for your time!

    Yep, a friend use hyperion exactly that way...second output goes to hyperion from the avr

    Hey, thanks for replying! Do you know perhaps which avr he was using just to get some more feedback? also, if both outputs sent 4k or 1080p signal at the same time or if you could have one sending 4k (to your tv presumably) and the other 1080 (for hyperion) ?
    thanks again!
