    I wish they would just start making (cheap ) 22/24” 4K TVs for second rooms. Would solve a lot of problems.

    I’m semi confident the baluns will work as the kitchen tv isn’t involved in the audio decoding.

    I currently have a hdmi cable from lounge amp to kitchen soundbar and it happily plays 5.1 in lounge and 2.1 in kitchen simultaneously.
    The soundbar is capable of accepting 7.1 input via hdmi.

    The baluns are arriving today so I’ll post back later with results.

    Hi Graham.

    Success. The baluns work perfectly.
    Short of time right now so I’ll post properly later or tomorrow.

    All sources going into lounge amp. Zone A hdmi to lounge tv. Zone B hdmi into Balun.

    Now getting 5.1 in lounge and 2.1 in kitchen. Zero dropouts in 20 minutes or so I’ve had to test it.

    Only tested 5.1 using Plex on Aura as there’s nothing being broadcast in surround at the moment.

    Excellent news. Does not fix it for me as no space for a 5.1 sound bar. TV is small but full-HD and is wall mounted near the ceiling.
