    4K HDMI switch recommendations for HDR /HDMI 2.0a

    Greetings. Looking to connect at least two or maybe three in near future 4k devices to one HDMI port on the 4k TV. I understand for HDR to show on a TV that 2.0a HDMI ports are needed both ends.

    Are there any HDMI 2.0a / HDR switches anyone is using/recommend or point me in the right direction? Thanks

    Have a look on Amazon at neet stuff. I've used their switches and matrix's and never had a problem.

    Thanks Craig I had a look at the neet stuff and made an enquiry too. They confirm they don't have a product yet.

    Bought a switch yesterday that says it's HDR compatible so it must have hdmi 2.0a ports. Hopefully will arrive today

    ​Just buy a reasonable priced 4k compatible home cinema. Speakers in modern TVs aren't up to the task. You need something with good mids and bass. Just pretty much connect a cheap pair of £30 speakers to it and the sound improvement will blow you away. Would be a lot quieter than the tinny mounted speakers in the TV and you get 4-7 hdmi ports included.

    No that's still an idea, thanks. Was just wondering if you had a model in mind. Seems like hdmi 2.0a ports are necessary to pass HDR through

    ​Anything hdmi 2.0 and 4k should pass hdr dolby vision without issue but I don't think hdr10 is. Sorry but I can't say off the top of my head but I will do a bit of digging as I'm curious about this aswell. This year models should support it but I would always double check.

    Finally got round to installing the HDR hdmi switch and it's working just fine. I don't have to think about going down the AV receiver route for a while at least
