@SQLDBA Hi again; just got the HDMI switch and it works! Thanks for finding this switch and sharing with us! Do you know how to update the firmware of the HDMI switch? And how did you disable the auto-switch option? What does "console" mean? I'm not familiar with this process? EDIT: found how to work with console. Edited the EDID connecting the HDMI Switch to the PC and apple TV 4k works great now! If anyone wants to learn how to do this, "at" me and I'll help you out. I ask this because the only thing that is not working for me is the Apple TV 4k unable to send Dolby ATMOS or uncompressed LPCM. ATMOS and LPCM work when directly connecting the appleTV to the soundbar, but it doesn't when connected through the switch to the soundbar. I'm thinking it has something to do with the EDID, as my PC was not allowing me to send 5.1 or 7.1 either, and I had to override the EDID from Windows 10.

@SQLDBA Hope I get a response since this was updated less than a week ago. I have tried 5 (FIVE!!) hdmi switches to have my devices connected directly to the soundbar: PS4Pro, Nintendo Switch (which only sends PCM), PC (which only sends PCM for games), and Apple TV 4K. All of the switches I've gotten do what you described in your original post (ps4 or appleTV going back to 1080p instead of 4k, or no sound and no image). Is this config (4 devices sending PCM 5.1 to soundbar IN, and soundbar OUT to TV) similar to what you have? Does the switch really work by just switching between inputs from the switcher while the soundbar is in HDMI mode? Thanks for finding this switch (if it really works)!
