I am trying to run side by side TVs through the same audio receiver. I was thinking I could use an ARC supported switch box, but I.couldnt get it to work. I just want to switch sound back and forth as needed
Thanks

I'm running a Sony 7.2 Channel Home Theater 4K AV Receiver (STRDH770).
It has 4 HDMI ins. But I'm running the tv's off wi-fi. So no cable or satellite boxes. Can get sound via ARC. Only has one ARC port

The problem is, the receiver runs both ARC and optical in the "TV" mode. It can't figure out which one to play. I would have to power down one or the other tv. My goal is just be able to switch the audio between the two TVs.
Thanks for your response

The ARC switch box I used said that all 3 inputs supported ARC
Tried all 3, none worked. Thanks I will try an optical switch box, I didn't think of that.
